This region of Northern Ontario was originally Ojibway Indian territory. French fur traders and explorers ventured this far north in the mid 1600's, but until the late 1800's settlements were few and populations very small compared to other communities to the south. With the building of a railway mining and forestry became the region's leading industries. Today tourism also plays a significant role in the prosperity of the area as more and more people discover this wonderful unspoilt part of Ontario's north.

Situated on the north shore of Georgian Bay Killarney Provincial Park is part of the La Cloche Range or sometimes referred to as the La Cloche Mountains and are composed primarily of white quartzite. They extend roughly from La Cloche Provincial Park, south of Massey, to Killarney Provincial Park, southwest of Sudbury. With an estimated age of 3.5 billion years, the La Cloche Mountains are one of the oldest mountain ranges on Earth. The communities of West River, Willisville and Whitefish Falls are located directly within the range.
