You are allowed to run small quiet generators.
Not too many people know about this place.

I know about it, it was hot and wet everywhere. We needed hydro and sis not have out generator yet. We do know. We did stay at the Marina they had hydro but good thing I had my surge suppressor hot was on ground. Needless to say I was not impressed.

Spent the weekend at earl rowe fletcher field. The sites are huge, the area is nice but very few of the sites have complete privacy and many of them have fire pits on the right side. The right side sucks for trying to put the door facing the firepit

Killarney has a number of pull-through sites in the "Trailer Court" section that can handle long trailers. That said, some of the turns in that area can be challenging!

Agree it's a long drive out there and not too worth it for 1-2 nights. 1/2 of the road to the park is quite bumpy and best taken by RVs at 50-60 kmh. That's half the reason why it takes so long to get there. But it's a beautiful park.

We were just there a few weeks ago and the raccoons drove us a little buggy. One came up and ripped our screen door trying to get in. If you have a dog, they will come right into your camp site and provoke your pet multiple times per day. They seem to claim free run of the park. We did leave a comment on that when we left - they should be trapped and relocated.

Because we've always lived east of Toronto, we're only now exploring PPs northwest and west of T.O. Our favourite PP is still Bon Echo but unfortunately with this 32' long TT that we bought last Spring there aren't as many sites that we'll fit on at Bon Echo. That's a problem with many PPs.

Except for one night at Darlington PP, we haven't had any problems with bold raccoons. We do love it when the chipmunks are tame enough to sit on your lap for a few peanuts!

We had no problem in the lower campground. First right but bugs ate us alive.

At Grundy lake first time I left the storage door open. Rocky woke us up at 3 am crawling around in the storage bay. I opened the emergency exit and dropped the door. He exited quickly after that.

Do you mean the Mazinaw Campground that's closest to the beach?
https://reservations.ontarioparks.com/BonEcho

We've always had a site in Mazinaw. Never had a site in one of the other campgrounds.

At Rondeau this weekend, site 1, mother raccoon with 4 babies doing the rounds of campsites all weekend. Best of all though was the mother deer and her 2 fawns in the bushes beside our site and wandering around the park.
