24 Parks near Alexandria Bay, New York
Aug 2006 - $16.00
This is a State Park in the middle of the 1000 Islands. There are NO hookups here at all. There are five prime sites along the river which you can sit and watch all the boats, yachts and freighters go by. Because there is no beach there is a huge pool with lifeguards. Some sites are extremely small for an RV and the park has a lot of tenters that bring their boats. There are lots of spots to fish from the edge including a beautiful old stone gazebo along the river edge. There are also places for the kids to jump off the rocks into the river - a very popular and able to s safe thing to do. In Alexandria Bay which is a two minute ride, there are typical touristy things to do including the Boat rides in large touring boats that give you various tours through the islands - not to be missed if you don't have your own boat to explore the area. We camped in our travel trailer for five days with no hookups but were able to enjoy the wonderful views from our prime site. There is usually a cool breeze from the river. A very quiet and small state park. - twins89

OK. I know. $70 a night was WAY too much to pay for a campground. But we wanted to splurge and sit on the river with a great view of the shipping channel. In fact, now that we've been there, there are less expensive sites with very good views of the river. But it was not busy when we were there - perhaps those views might be partially obstructed if the campground were full? I don't know. But splurge we did, and we loved it!
A beautiful new facility built for big rigs! Our 45 ft motorhome fit comfortably in our site, and the interior roads were generously sized and easy to navigate.
We will stay here again! - MerBee

Cons: Had the lawns (really mostly dead grass, weeds and dirt) been green between sites, as shown in photos, we would have given it a 10. They had not had rain in three weeks, and there was no irrigation in place. It would have been nicer, at this price, if someone already had a picnic table at our site instead of having to drag one over. Some of the $100 sites RIGHT on the water are worth $100, but I feel $70 was steep for our site. That is, $60 and a $10 per day charge for 50 amp service. $5 a day for 30 amp service. I have never ran into that before.
Pros: Boat launch is right there and trailer storage is there too. Very clean. Majority of sites had a paver patio, ours did not. Majority of sites were very spacious. We did have a tiny view of the river. Pool and Tiki Bar is a nice touch. Couch swings on the water's edge was a nice touch. Overall it really is a nice CG, but the yellow lawn areas were just not expected and at 93 degrees, dry yellow lawn areas put a damper on our thinking about this park, at this price. - User3274

You would think that if you are paying this kind of money that you would not have to pay additional for you electric. The WiFi here is awful. It was in and out if you were even able to connect. Our site had weeds growing in the patio. The front office was very nice and helpful. I have traveled all over the US in the last 5 years. When I pay this kind of money I expect my site to be in good shape and the advertised amenities to work properly. I will probably not go back. - SStapleton

Lovely scenic campground situated between Kingston & Brockville along the St. Lawrence River, perfect while visiting the Thousand Islands area. Secured gated campground with a variety of campsites, some open, some shaded. Many beautiful hilly sites along the water which are suitable only for tents. For those with a tent, check out site #118 -- simply gorgeous! There is a small beach for swimmers with a section dedicated to divers, as well as 2 boat docks for those with watercraft. The base of the Thousand Islands Bridge which crosses into New York state is located in the campground; you walk underneath it to go to the beach. Wifi was available at the campground office but did not reach our site. We had 4 tv channels with our antenna. Staff were pleasant and made their rounds to ensure a wonderful camping experience for all. - naturelover

This was one of our favorite campgrounds from our summer travels.
Water views of the St. Lawrence Seaway and it's oceangoing freighters from every site. Well maintained. - Airstream 25

No answer to calls. I believe after driving by this place, the campground is closed. Appeared to be in much disrepair, long grass, and no one around. We ended up staying in a state park. - twins89

We chose this park due to it being a Passport America park just for an overnight stay while heading to Vermont. We had reserved a site but when we got to the campground there was no one in the office to direct us to a site. We tried the house and there was no one there either, no envelope indicating where we should go. We had stayed here before and found the lady at the office rude, but decided to try again. We also found that $2 per dog was a little expensive. - Tundra

The park seems to be an old park. It definitely needs some updating. We checked in and were given a site that they had put down crushed stone and sloped it. We needed appox. 3 and one half inches of board to level our trailer. Once set up the owner came by and told us that the sewer pipe had been crushed (thus the crushed stone) and that we would have to use the dump station if we needed to dump our tanks. So we had paid for sewer but had to use the dump station. There was no dumpster near the entrance for trash so we had to go looking for one which ended up being in the center of the park. Also as we checked in there was a sign $2 per dog which is nowhere in their advertisements. We travel with three. The park itself was run down with boats and rusty golfcarts in the fields and beside the roads with long grass around them. I don't know if its for decoration or laziness not cleaning up. It seems to be more for the seasonal patrons and they seem to be used to the park the way it is. Next time we are in the area we are going to stay in the state park nearby. The only good thing was it was Passport America and half price. I would have been really angry had I paid full price. - Tundra

What an amazing state park. We stayed in the Fox loop with full hookups. Note, there is not a bathhouse nor showers in this loop. Check in was easy since we had reservations. Bring your pets vaccination records as they will ask you for their proof of rabies vaccination. We chose site 15 because it backed up to the woods, we had morning sun at our awning and great afternoon shade, this along with sites 17, 19, 21 and 23 would be our choice for future visits. The sites are spacious so you actually have a "yard." The sites are paved but do require some leveling blocks. Water pressure was excellent, sewer worked without any issues but the electric dipped down to 99 volts on occasion. This park is BIG. We took our dogs on many walks and with walking "around" the park loops you can easily do 3 plus miles. If you are looking for electric only, you might want to to try loop H, very open sites and quiet. We kayaked several times from a put in spot by loop H, parking is available so you can leave your car. Great playground for kids by the camp store / marina with amazing views of the river. We can't give it a "10" due to the lack of security, after the staff leaves anyone can drive into this park and set up camp. There are no markers on the sites to tell you who belongs and who does not. A couple sites down we saw a RV drive in after dark and leave early in the morning. The week we were here we only saw maintenance staff, never a park ranger. - bug512

We stayed at this state park in the Thousand Islands area. It is a large state park but well maintained. They are upgrading some of their camping loops and buildings--next year they will have a new camp store. The dump stations were recently redone and very nice. We walked in and were given several available sites and allowed to check them out before we decided. We stayed in Loop C. We had electric. About half of the sites are in full sun with little shade. The restrooms/showers were nice. We wanted to take a tour of the Thousand Islands and Boldt Castle and Clayton Island Tours makes a pick up at the marina in the state park. It was very convenient not to have to leave the state park. The price per night includes a $15 base fee, a $6 electric fee, a $5.00 fee for being a non-resident and a $2.75 fee for walk-in. - gatorbaityogi

This enormous, beautiful New York state park in the 1000 Islands region is located on the same island as the bridge to Canada, though you would never know it while you are in the park. Most of the 6 camping areas were closed when we were there, the park closed for the winter a week later. Our campsite was a few yards from the St. Lawrence River and some of the many islands that give the region its name. There are informal put-in spots for canoes and kayaks throughout the campground. It was several miles from our campsite to the main entrance, and miles beyond that to a town. I wouldn’t suggest using it as a staging point for touring the region, but there is plenty to do in the campground, so you may not need to leave. We were here for only one rainy night, and will definitely return here again to enjoy all that this wonderful park has to offer. - ShoreXplorers

Very nice campground. It is located on the river and you can watch the ships from the camp. The spaces are a little small and has a limited number of sites on the water. The camp is pet friendly. Facilities are clean and well kept. - User2656

Good for kids. Beach with life guard. Nice view, easy dump. Would visit again. - FtLcharliep

It's our 2nd time there since the 2 last year. We stop there for one night every time on our way to Virginia. We found the place perfect. This year we even had a site in front of the water and we enjoy the most gorgeous sunset I ever see, was fabulous. The bad think is we have a fifth wheel and they place us on a very small site, more for a tent than a trailer, but it wont stop us to go back. Nice place to go for fishing. - Mamour

Price reflects a week stay. Gravel interior roads and grass or gravel sites. Nice long angled pull thrus and shorter straight to angled back ins. Was able to get all our stuff on our site #29, a straight back in, although it was tight getting the trailer between the sewer dump, not running over it and a tree on the other side to be able to get the dining/living room slide out without hitting the tree. Road noise was minimal. Allows campfires. TV antenna two major networks, the CW and all the rest were PBS channels. Internet was slow to not working at all. Entrance is also the exit and only one lane. Some what easy in easy out with a 60 foot combo. - Tallboy

This was a great overnight spot with the Passport America discount. There are about a dozen pull-thru sites for overnighters that are fairly closely spaced, but beautifully maintained and have some grass. Access was easy and we didn't need to unhook our car. However, the hookups are at the rear of the site, so our electrical cord just reached. If we'd wanted to use the sewer, we would have had to unhook. The rest of the park is unkempt with seasonal/long term residents with varying levels of clutter. We would only stay here again for an overnight with the PA discount. Otherwise, we'd stay at the Grass Point State Park next door, which has recently been completely remodeled, is right on the water, and is about the same price. - Mingo Papa

This campground is a convenient location for exploring both Clayton and Alexandria Bay, right on Rt 12. The sites in the front section where we were staying are very close. There was some grass in between sites, which was nice. Placement of fire rings at some sites was odd. No access to the river from this campground. Overall, this campground could use a makeover. There are many small outbuildings, with a lot of clutter and equipment around each one. There are some seasonal/permanent campers and trailers that are quite an eyesore. - Bisk5000

Went back after our last visit a couple of years ago. Kids like the park and asked o go again. Still find the pool area over whelming. They are soaker pools and very busy with children, crowded as they are popular. Children sliding and jumping and not paying attention to others, parents need to be more on the ball. Still love the place. Large adult only hot pool. Service is A1. - The Allens

Great park for kids; lots of play areas & activities.
Pool & Spa areas nice however adult spa was only open until 9pm.
Sites were level & roomy. Each site seemed to have its own rate schedule which could not be found on their website.
Water pressure was awful.
Over priced in our opinion. - Our-Wandering-Casa

On a scale of 1 to 10 I would say the park is about a 6, near average, but with a good play area for kids. At a huge cost of $105 plus tax per night I would expect a lot more than all gravel, no cable and a slow Internet connection. - Ron_H

We made reservations when we were only 60 miles away. The person we talked to was very friendly and assured us of a pull through.
At check in the staff was very efficient. They will carry a tab for purchases in the store. After registration we were escorted to our site. The pull through site was spacious, we have slides on both side. We had full hook ups, including good 50 amp electrical service.
Over all, the park looked well kept. There seem to be a lot of activities for children. The train someone else mentioned, is distant and not a problem.
Like most KOA parks they are over priced, even for this area. - Frank Barker

A quiet campground in basically an open field. Lots of trains especially at night but far enough away to be mostly background noise - inaudible with windows closed.
A winding gravel access road with short sight distances - iffy for two rigs passing. An awkward setup for check in and access to the campground for big rigs - a 90 degree turn from the check in area to the gate into the campground, then another 90 degree turn immediately after the gate. Posts close aboard on either side of the gate and a poorly trimmed tree on the inside of the turn after the gate. Big rigs can either scrape the tree or delay the 2nd turn and drive over the grass. Big rigs should park as far to the left in the check in area as possible to make the turns into the campground easier.
Mostly level gravel sites with good length and better than average spacing between sites (grass). Site had a fire pit and picnic table. Power ok, water ok (45psi), sewer needs a donut. Wifi had good signal with adequate speed. TMobile (Tellus) LTE was 4 bars with good speed.
Ok road bike riding within campground with St Lawrence bikeway a short drive away. Full recycling on site.
We would return here when in area. - SeaLandSkyPhoto

Very well run campground. Office staff are excellent. Grounds are well maintained. Jumping pillow is new installation since our stay last year. Weather didn't co-operate with us again this stay, so we can't comment on the pool. The big pull-throughs provide ample space and new picnic tables. Overall is fairly quiet despite the train off in the distance, not loud enough to be disturbing. Look forward to staying again. - diehard
