Nat'l Park on the Water
paź 2020
A very historic national park, this is a great spot to visit. With several pretty hiking trails, it is well worth grabbing the camera and heading out!

Tiny Nature Gem on the River
paź 2020
Came across this tiny park while biking on the nearby trail. It is really small right on the River, has a few camp sites, a visitor's centre (open only during the summer) and public washrooms (open 8:30-4:30 p.m.). There is paid parking but not really worth a visit unless you plan to spend a day picnicking,boating or camping. Lots of picnic tables and a shelter. A small rocky shoreline that would be nice just to sit and appreciate nature and watch sunsets.

Beautiful spot for glamping
sie 2019 • Pary
We stopped here to enjoy the views, but didn't realize you can book a glamping tent here. They look phenomenal! This is a nice spot for a chance to get near the St Lawrence River, and contemplate life.

This park has deteriorated over the years.
wrz 2017 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
Too much overgrowth, dead trees falling down and just being left. Too many ticks. Remember the park when families could picnic, swim along a beach and enjoy family memories.

Short detour
lip 2018 • Dla rodziny
We took at short detour off the 401 to go through the Thousand Islands National park. We probably should have taken a longer detour as the part we saw made it difficult to see the water because of the high trees. Plan to take a reasonable detour to get the most out of it.

Nice breeze
lip 2018 • Pary
Visitors center is interesting and a worthwhile stopover, especially for children, with lots of hands-on activities. Short walk to seashore and water view. Lots of (paid) parking, mostly used by people who are boating on the river.

Otentiks -- Nice waterfront view and friendly staff, but...
cze 2018 • Dla rodziny
We booked oTentik 3E at Mallorytown Landing for two nights. Overall, the location was convenient, the staff were very friendly and hardworking, they've tried their best to keep the facilities clean and neat. However, here is something you need to consider when you plan your next trip here:

1. There is no shelter for the outdoor eating/picnic area, therefore, your table gets messy (from insects, bugs, and tree fallings, etc) very soon after you clean it.

2. BBQ is the old-school charcoal style, so don't forget to bring in your own charcoal, there is no propane BBQ.

3. Tons of mosquitoes in shower room, so be prepared to be "kissed" when you are most vulnerable. There should be some screen to cover all the openings, don't know why there isn't. There is cold and hot water for both shower rooms, but water temperature can be very inconsistent, especially when the neighboring shower room is occupied. Also it would be better if there is a small sink in the shower room.

4. Otentik 3E is very, very close to the main road - Thousand Islands Pkwy, so if you book this one, noise is something you need to consider. Besides, according to our friends who stayed at 3B, it's not less noisy at theirs too. So I guess the location of the whole site is a main concern, if you want a quiet and peaceful vacation, try to avoid this site.

5. Shower and modern washrooms are relatively far (as compared to some other sites we've stayed before), not situated in between the five otentiks. There is one composite toilet (an outhouse, to be precise) near 3D and 3E. Feel free to try this if your are really interested to experience or you really really need to go, otherwise, I would not recommend this, especially those with very young kids.

6. Water flow/pressure in the washroom is a big problem. No matter how hard the staff is working and cleaning, they couldn't do all. So be prepared to see some unflushed toilets bowls (sorry to have to visualize this again, eww).

7. I understand it's supposed to be an outdoor and natural experience while staying at an otentik, so we brought headlights with us. There are lights in the washroom and shower-rooms, but not in the hallway. Don't understand why. Would recommend Parks Canada to have some motion-sensor lights installed.

8. According to the binder left on the table of each otentik, there is a passcode for using the shower rooms. However, it's not true. The doors can be opened easily, without punching in any code. So I guess non-otentik campers can also share the shower rooms? Just my guess. Hopefully the authority can do something about this.

If you read to this part, I thank you very much for your patience and wish you a wonderful vacation!

Mallorytown Landing a Parkway treat
cze 2017 • Dla rodziny
A good place to take a break from the 401 highway travel ( exit 675 south) or while traveling the Thousand Island Parkway. An interesting spot for the whole family. Bring a picnic lunch and watch the pleasure boating/ kayak/canoe activity along the shoreline while the kids use the play area. Very good boat launch and docks to use. You can also get local information at the small visitor center. If you are traveling the 401 highway the next east bound service center is just a few kilometers down the road if you need to refuel.

Sailing the islands
wrz 2017 • Pary
What a lovely 2 days we had in the Thousand Island Park. We visited Leek Island and Camelot Island, each time on a mooring buoy. Both anchorages were very quiet, secluded, not too many boats. It is very special to be on an island with few services and experience the peace and quiet. Not to mention the starry nights. Wonderful.
