Experience a new adventure and stay in one of our tipi’s. 18’tipi sleeps up to 6 people, more if you snuggle; 14’ tipi sleeps 2-4 people. You’ll need your camping gear less your tent. It’s perfect for those arriving the day or evening before going into Killarney Provincial Park. There is also a central fire-pit, located between the two tipi’s, for outdoor cooking and campfires. It’s a beautiful area for group gatherings, family re-unions, couples or for having a workshop/event.

This building sits over Tyson Lake and has a panoramic view of the lake. We offer this as an alternative to camping (in a tent). Very secluded and private. There is a fire-pit for outdoor cooking and campfires.
The area was first settled in 1820 by French Canadian fur trader Étienne Augustin de Lamorandière and his Anishinaabe wife Josephte Saisaigonokwe. A trading post was established and called Shebahonaning, an Ojibway name, meaning canoe passage. There are no historical details when the name of the town changed to Killarney. Hwy 637, connecting Killarney to Hwy 69, was constructed in 1961/62. The road officially opened July 20, 1962. Prior to its construction, the community relied primarily on water transport via Georgian Bay and the North Channel (Lake Huron). The town is also served by the small Killarney airport.
Killarney Provincial Park
In 1959 the Killarney Park area was set aside as a wilderness preserve. In 1964, with the help of lobbying efforts by the Group of Seven, 4,000 square miles (10,000 km2) of Georgian Bay shoreline were set aside as a wilderness reserve and Killarney became a provincial park. The area showcases the wild Georgian Bay Coast of pink granite, the La Cloche Mountain range with white quartzite ridges and over 50 clear, sapphire lakes.
