Are there any guidebooks out there for Killarney?

I have also read climbing is not permitted in the park, is this true?

Bon Echo is the only Park where it is officially permitted. Some parks will turn a blind eye other will not.

I emailed the Killarney park superintendent to find out for sure about the legality last spring and he replied with:

"The Provincial Parks and Conservation Reserves Act, 2006 O. Reg 347/07 Section 11(1) states:

11. (1) No person shall rappel or rock climb in a provincial park with or without the aid of ropes, anchors or similar equipment except in an area designated by the superintendent for the purpose.

Killarney Provincial Park has no designated areas."

I asked about getting an area designated and he replied,
"A public review of the park management plan - will begin likely in 2009 (done approx every 20 years) I will add your item to the list for review but be aware the review process can take several years."

He didn't seem very open to the idea.
