Access Killarney area
(updated July 2015)


Comments.
1. I suppose that it is possible to start in Killarney village but I know no permitted place to park. 
2. Some parties start from the Rocher Rouge campground (information is posted below). 
3. Paddlers travelling eastward from Killlarney often encounter clapotis near Red Rock Point, especially later in the day. Tourists seem to enjoy the spectacle as we struggle to round the point. To avoid the reflected waves, paddle farther from shore (and so perhaps not give the tourists a fright). 
4. Most parties start at the parking lot near the mouth of the Chikanishing River. Parking permits (required) can be purchased at the George Lake entry point.

Access French River and Pickerel River
(Updated July 2015)


French River and French River Provincial Park. Information. 
Please consult the information provided at 
http://myccr.com/phpbbforum/viewtopic.php?f=107&t=33992 
French River PP permits. 
Permits are required, but I was unable to find a list of places where you can purchase them; the official French River PP site was no help. Last I heard, you can purchase permits at the Key River marina on Hwy 69, at the post on Hwy 69 at the French River, and at Hartley Bay. Better check by phone. 

Comment on the coverage.
This thread describes lengthy trips on the Bay itself. Routes with only incidental travel on Georgian Bay are not posted here, but rather at 
http://myccr.com/phpbbforum/viewtopic.php?f=107&t=33992 

Access options near Hwy 69. 
1. The marina on the north side of the French river, east of Hwy 69. It’s a long paddle to the Bay. 
2. Hartley Bay Marina on the French River. Parking is by valet; not all paddlers are pleased with the result. 
3. The marina (I haven’t used it since the change in ownership) on Cantin Lake (IR land). From here, you can paddle down the Pickerel River to the junction with the French River or you can head up through Trestle Gully Lake and portage (check map for what is IR land) past Little French Rapids to the French River. Either way, it’s another long paddle to the Bay. 

Bustard Islands. Information. 
Location: South and a bit west of the Main Outlet (French River).

Access Sturgeon Bay PP, Pointe au Baril and Shawanaga area
(Updated July 2015)

Sturgeon Bay Provincial Park. Comments. 
Not used by paddlers as best I know, and so I see no point in providing information for it. 
Relevant comments (in two posts) by jedi jeffi
1. Forget Sturgeon Bay; it makes private campgrounds look spacious.
Most spots are right on top of each other, and yes I stayed there a few years ago with the trailer, paddling okay, way too many boats and people (noisy + ) too many drunk fishermen and very little in park enforcement.
If you are looking for some quiet time together, go for a few portages. Early start on the water in the morn.
2. Campground sites suck (too crowded), lots of power boats but has parking and access to the islands there. 
I have no idea about crown land islands in the area though, but it is a fairly protected body of water.

Comments for paddlers. 
Little used by folks like us. It’s a long paddle to the Bay, dodging speedboats; then you have to find a place to camp in a “cottage”-infested area. 
The most convenient (only reasonable?) access point is from Pointe au Baril station, as described below.

Access Parry Sound.
(updated Aug 14, 2014)

Ed notes: 
1. Parry Sound is little used by paddlers to access Georgian Bay, for good reasons, not the least of which is heavy traffic of monster boats (size, speed, PWCs and the like). 
2. CCR member Melissa provided the following. 
“One more access point in the Parry Sound area is Oak Point Marina, at Oak Point (also called Wasauksing Marina), just south of Parry Sound. This makes for good access to the Cathcart and Umbrella Islands.”

Intermediate access points
(updated July 2015)

The reach between Penetanguisehe and Wiarton (Colpoy’s Bay) has many access points but it is heavily populated and rarely paddled, at least by trippers; it is likely paddled frequently by day-trippers. 
My search, albeit cursory, found no reports of any kind.
