All of the parks would accommodate a 32' rig.

My 272bh is 31 pin to bumper, zero issues.

We were in Killarney in July. Walked around looking at sites. Don't believe the pictures or what they recommend for trailer length...we saw big trailers in there

Some sites are large and some are pull-through. But there are some tight turns in the "trailer court."

Hey Mike... Oastler Lake Park is a very nice park, went there for many picnics as a lad. Depending what you want it might work. It is great for a stopover but is near a railroad so if train whistles bother you keep that in mind. Since the highway was rerouted there is not so much road noise. I grew up in Parry Sound, love the area. Never been to Sturgeon or Mikisew. Kilbear Park just north of Parry Sound is so far my favorite. Just getting ready to head there for two weeks. Looks like the weather is going to be great.

Rondeau
Pinery
Inverhuron

All parks are ones I have been too. All very good for biking. Rondeau is flat and lots of wildlife and birds. Spring/ Fall are our favourite times there.

We spent the week in Grundy. What can i say but Wow!!! It is amazing for canoeing and lakefront sites. We definitely will be using it for our longer summer vacations. The 3 hiking trails are great... wear good hiking boots. Nice and close to French river pp with a good hike to the falls. Also close to killarney (1 hour ish)

Just finished an 9 night run...Started at a private campground Campark in Niagara Falls. We pull in on a Thursday night was a little difficult to back in as most campers were parked on the roads edge and gone to sleep. We were there for the falls, was a great spot. Bus stop at the park entrance leads you into the falls. Passes can be purchase at the park. When we finished are trip the kids came back and jumped on a giant balloon and we enjoyed a warm swim in the pool. They even had a good live band.

Saturday morning off to ArrowHead provincial Park. Roe camp ground spot 402 was tricky to place my trailer between the trees but once spot the site was level..amazing.
It was very shaded which was great in the 40+ weather. Our site was close to the Big Bend Lookout. The kayak and canoe rentals were very reasonable. Lake was great and they had a local celebrity snapping turtle near the dock..my daughter wasn't impressed..hehehe. It a great place many biking and hiking trails and a falls that is worth checking out. It is also very close to Huntsville, on so Canadian Tire, Walmart and restaurants. Also we used a local laundromat by the last day there..Trailer was beginning to have a funky smell. Our 6 night stay was great despite bouts of rain. Even a a short in my trailer break away cable didn't bring us down.

Off to McRae Point Provincal park on Lake Simcoe near Orillia Ontario. . Note the trailer sanitation is located before the check in gate and is a little sub par..1 laner, on a curve, with a slop. The sites are not private but most are pull through and large. We were there with some of our neighbors so the open space was great because we can see our sites and children at any time. We love their peach near our site 85, clean and shallow for some distance... I was surprised a beach like that was on Simcoe, a lot of yachts anchor there to enjoy the bay as well. As for anything else to do there isn't much..but we were there for the company..we stayed 2 nights

Just came from Killarney. Windy and wet, i would even say stormy .Two trailers ended up with awnings on their roofs. I managed to put my in, goat soakes to socks. Stayed closer to town though at a private campground.
Saw at least 4-6 bears a day. Even in town, 10-15 ft away from the road on peoples apple trees. Locals didnt seem to care
Yeah, forgot how bad the road was. Couple of times i thought my hitch would separate from the truck along with the trailer.
