Rates:

This family owned and run campground does not take credit cards. We had to send a check for $100 to hold our reservation, and we paid the balance upon arrival. With 50 amp service, we paid a total of $386 for a week’s stay. In retrospect, we did not need 50 amp service since our A/C was never needed. Cabins are also available to rent.

Lot:

This is a decent sized park with multiple levels as it starts higher up and sites continue moving closer to the St. Lawrence River. There are pull through and back in lots. All sights are relatively level on grass or gravel (we were on grass). The park is close to town. (We do not have a park map to post.)

Amenities: Electric – 30 and 50 amp, Water – Yes, Sewer – Yes, TV – No, Internet – No

Other Conveniences: Laundry, Showers, Game Room, Pool, Playground, Fishing Pier, Firewood for Purchase

Other Inconveniences: I don’t recall a dedicated dog walking area.

Positives: Location – it is a great place to stay to spend time in and around the St. Lawrence River and to explore the 1000 Islands area of NY. The owners are very nice and helpful. Information is provided about things to do and places to eat in the area. Some sites have awesome views of the river. Folks tend to congregate outside to talk, drink wine, etc. while enjoying the nightly sunsets over the river.

Negatives: Sites are not very spacious, but in the grassy open area in which we were parked, we did not feel closed in. Roads are tight and twisty, so you must be careful. The park, which is only open from sometime around April until about the middle of October, stays pretty full, so you probably need a reservation.
