Yes we have been through that ourselves. Camped at a few conservation campgrounds. Then we lucked out and got into Point Farms and managed to find PP spots for rest of our first year.
Keep checking for sites some cancellations happen and then if grab them quick you can get in.

Killarney is definitely on my bucket list but not sure it is worth the drive for one or two days. Sounds like a place to spend a week.

Very few, if any, sites big enough to accommodate our TT and no electric sites. As beautiful as it may be, it's not a park we'll be staying at.

Really depends whar you're looking for. When i got to scenic places, with taking pics of scenery, going on awesome trails, canoeing, swimmng in the lake etc on my mind - hydro is not on my must list.

Oh, I'd visit Killarney. We just wouldn't park the TT there. Based on the pictures on the reservation site it doesn't look like the sites are big enough even if we were willing to camp without electricity. We've been known to stay at a KOA and do day trips to the nearby provincial park. Gives us the best of both worlds.

There is a private campground in the town of killarney. As soon as you pass a sign that reads "Killarney" make a first right. Its called Roche Rouge. I have been there every year since 1990. It is owned by a family, third generation now i think. Very nice people. it is on waterfront, water only. There is outhouses there, but i use my trailers washroom. You are allowed to run small quiet generators.
Not too many people know about this place.
