I headed up to Wellesley Island state park for the long Thanksgiving weekend with three teenagers (one girl and two boys). We rented cottage A, which was clean, spacious, warm and fully stocked with everything we needed. The fire pit outside was the only disappointment as it was well below ground level (on a sloping hill) so tending the fire was a difficult process and cooking on it was challenging. The Nature Center was open and lovely and every Saturday (even in off season) they organize hikes. The park itself was incredible - highly recommend the Eel Bay trail, which will take you past the glacial potholes a d along the striking coastline. We also checked out the North end of the park, near the marina and will probably go back in the summer and rent a cabin over there. There’s a store, laundromat and arcade, but all were closed either due to the time or year, or covid. Litter is a problem throughout the park which is really sad. We did our best to clean up what we could, but someone should organize a clean up, especially because lots of it must make it’s way into the St Lawrence :( The staff we met were all really friendly and helpful. The towns surrounding the park are economically struggling and we had to drive quite far to find a grocery store that was open. All restaurants within a 20 minute drive were closed for the season. We’ll definitely be back!
This campground is part of the Long Point State Park, a long spit on the shore of Lake Ontario. Part of the Thousand Islands. The campground has some of the best amenities we have seen in a state park. Personal toilet, shower& sink are contained within separate rooms within the amenity block, perfect for couples and young families. They are new construction with plenty of room.
The park offers flat, grassy sites, all with fire rings& picnic tables. The camp office sells ice and firewood. The campground has its own boat ramp and dock. You can easily launch kayaks right from your campsite. It can get quite windy on the point so take a wind break or shelter.
Minimal phone reception at this one and they welcome furry friends!
This campgrounds is used by my family and friends for years for a fishing tournament. I don't often attend but I did this year. The bathrooms didn't look clean at all. At best, they look like they are cleaned weekly. The toilet seats looked like they were stained from lack of proper cleaning. The showers looked grimy as well.
This campground is massive and the park is beautiful. We stayed in the C loop at site # The site was large enough to fit our 27’ camper and had ample room off the side for entertaining. (We were able to set up 2 canopies, have our awning fully extended, set up a 6 person tent, an area for the kids to play on and area for corn-hole). This site has electric hookups. There is a water Spicket near by but you need at least 150’ worth of hose to reach it. Just a short walk from the campsite you’ll find a pleasant little cove-like beach. Within the park you’ll find a general store that offers laundry, soft serve ice cream and an arcade, a beach for swimming, a large marina, and even a nature museum (which has fantastic walking trails near by) Each loop seems to have their own unique playground which are large and well built. Off the island we visited 2 wineries (the Thousand Islands Winery and Coyote Moon Winery)
Small campground with 30+ sites. Grass sites with plenty of trees for shade.
There's little undergrowth between sites for privacy but spacious sites makes up for it. We found a site on the edge for good privacy.
Sites are well maintained. Bath facilities need maintenance.
There are 2 sites immediately on the river but many others with unobstructed views.
You can hear the clip clip of horses from the Amish buggys on the road across the river.
We have never heard of this place and had always stayed at Wellesley Island when headed up to the 1,000 Islands. Took a chance and it didn't disappoint.
Swimming hole was nice and relaxing. Plenty of sand for the kids to play in and the water was warmer than expected.
We stayed in the non-electric loop with a small travel trailer and it was great. Half of the loop is in the woods and the other half has spacious, grassy sites bordered with woods behind them. Some sites were hilly and we would not have been able to get our trailer in, so its worth calling before you book.
