Special Comments: 

This is almost a loop trip. The shuttle distance is only about 10 km. This route cuts into Killarney Provincial Park, so an entry permit will be required if you are camping inside the park. The portage descriptions listed in the MNR guide seem to be inaccurate, so the lengths here are from the Killarney Provincial Park map.

Bev, you can view topographic maps for free on The Atlas of Canada. The friends of Killarney charge for maps but they show alot of useful trip planning information like campsites and portage locations, however all the basic topographic information can be seen on The Atlas of C and map scales can be adjusted to show more or less detail.

Hi: I am having problems locating a map for the killarney water way system. I can only find site that want to charge
people for maps that you cannot see before you buy them.I would like to see
them before I can plan a summer trip to
see if this is area I would canoe this summer.
