  • Went camping here for labor day weekend and had a wonderful time. The park overall is very well kept. All the area's are mowed and debris free. They have a good mix of site's to choose from. Wooded, water side, open fields, and even a few cabins and cottages. The park offers plenty of water access for boating and water sports. My family and friends will definitely be returning here for a more extended stay.
  • One of many beautiful parks in the 1000 islands. Very open and spacious. It has lots of activities for everyone to do from the youngest to the oldest. They also have a nature center there with many hiking trails to enjoy. Many other things to do there. You can watch beautiful sunsets from your camp site.
