Whomever designed campgrounds in NYS apparently never saw an RV or a campground. Stayed at 1000 Islands State Park on Wellesley Island the night before I stopped here for four days. The paved site at 1000 Island SP was tilted about 7 degrees. The one here was worse. 5 orange blocks under each front wheel didn't even move the bulls eye bubble (site 035).
Did get to move to 029 the next day and lucked out. I think it is the only level site in the park. Site 035 not only was very unlevel, it was a mud hole. One orange block sunk below ground level. The shower houses were circa 1940, definitely in need of an update. That said, they were clean. Roads need a lot of work. Except for the main roads, they were either dirt, narrow and in need of repair with tight turns. Check-in staff was helpful. Other than that, the park is lovely. Treed and open spaces. A variety of options for W/E and basic sites. - eaf14131

This is one of the nicest of the state parks we have visited. The view of the river is excellent, and the park is within easy driving distance of all the area activities. The restroom facilities are being upgraded throughout the park, but the process has not yet reached the waterfront facility. That facility is a bit tired, but well-maintained. The park has a nice marina facility, and fishing boats are available for rental. We have been here four times in the last two years, and we will definitely be back. - Alhub

Great campground. Check-in painless and quick as we had registered online in advance. Our site was long and wide, level, shady. We did not camp on the waterway but very close walking distance. Beautiful sunsets. Busy but not loud. Location perfect to visit area attractions and travel across the bridge to Canada. The bathhouses had individual rooms for showers and bathrooms that were immaculate. We would definitely recommend this campground. - carol d

Beautiful state park right on Chaumont Bay & Long Bay. 88 sites with 30 electric (30 amp). Spacious enough to park across the site to maximize the view and catch the breeze. No privacy but the view makes up for it. Ice and firewood available at the Ranger station. Nice place to kayak and play in the lake. Very family friendly with a very large playground. - Breezy2

This is a great state park! The sites are all grass, some more level than others, and all are very good size. You can back in, pull in, or park cross-wise. We're a 40 ft., 4 slide motorhome; we could have parked it sideways in the site. Electric and non electric sites; water and dump station also available. Restrooms and shower were very clean and lots of hot water. Our Verizon MIFI worked very well, good cell coverage. There is a nice playground for kids, picnic area, boat launch, and fishing from the shore. Fire wood available at the office. We would definitely stay here again. - DiplomatTraveler

A quiet campground located on a scenic peninsula that juts out into the Chaumont Bay of Lake Superior. Most of the sites are open and grassy with a few shaded options for tent campers. All of the site have water views and some water access. A popular fishing destination and only a short drive from several historic towns on Lake Superior. The campground was full the weekend we stayed there, but not all noisy. Clean and well maintained facilities (and recycling) made this a pleasant place to spend the weekend. - watsontravels

Be sure to ask for Good Sam and Passport America discounts. Nothing said up front, nothing asked at check-in. The site was too far from water to hook-up until I pulled off the wooded pads. Long haul for electric also. Hospitable staff. There are many other campsites to choose from along the road (NY 12). Free WiFi. If you use AC additional charge of $3.00 per night. - Bburgbrewer

I hesitate to write a review for this campground. It is so QUIET that I'd hate to have that ruined by an influx of campers with some other agenda. Merry Knoll is situated about 2 miles west of the town of Clayton, NY off of Rt. 12E. It is rather small and is populated almost exclusively by seasonal campers. The grounds are immaculately clean and everything is very well-maintained. Interior roads are paved but narrow in places. I was taken by golf cart to our site by the owner, then taken back to the office to get my rig. A short walk downhill takes you to a campground-owned deck overlooking the river. There is also a dock that is accessible to campers. Sites for transients are in an open area overlooking the river and there will be shade only very early or very late in the day. Bath facilities are available although we did not use them. It is clearly an older building but has been exceptionally well-kept and is clean. The best word I can use to describe the bath house is "rustic." There are laundry facilities which are likewise very clean. WiFi is free and works well. Rate reflects two in our party and Good Sam discount. Add $3 per day if using air conditioner. We would stay here again. - RamWagon

A very nice campground that is centrally located to all of the activities in the area. The owners are friendly and the camp is well kept. There was a playground for the kids, a swimming pool and the camp is pet friendly. Overall it was a positive experience and would stay again. - User2656

We were greeted by lady in golf cart. Office is not in evidence. She led us around the park to the site she suggested. It seemed to be one of few available for overnight. Because of the tight quarters, we had difficulty pulling into the site as we were directed to do. When she asked someone to help, that person suggested, critically, that we should have unhooked before attempting the site. After getting utilities started, I checked the shower house and found them disgusting and requiring 25 cent payment. We used our own facilities. Trying to use a hairdryer while the a/c was turned on blew the fuse. This park is for permanent parking and cannot be recommended. - Yeager

This park had a beautiful lake to look at. Nice place to walk the dog.
The bathrooms were full of bugs, everywhere. I spoke to the park manager and the maint guys said the couldn't spray the bugs because EPA says they can't use chemicals!!!! I don't know if that is true or not. I wouldn't go there again. Roads are dirt and lots of ruts ! Electrical weatherproof box didn't have a cover and larger wooden splice box was leaning over and the wood was rotten. - SubVet SSBN619

Large park - they seem to do a good job separating the areas of the seasonal stayers and the temporary (nightly) folks. The area where we were (M7) had some trees but was open enough to be able to drive around pretty easily. You may need to make a 3-point (or 2-point) turn when exiting so consider whether you want to hook up your car or not.
The garbage/recycling was all in the area near the entrance.
We had read about the skunks before coming - glad we knew about them because they may have been a shock otherwise. They seemed to be active near dusk - people with dogs made sure that they walked them well in advance.
We needed a place that was close enough to the US border to allow us to make a quick trip to get prescriptions and some other errands completed and Rideau Acres fit the bill. - pattic777

It was perfect Autumn weather for camping and the park population was sparse. The back-in sites are well laid out for spacing. We had full hookup, but 4 sites shared a common post for electricity and water. Each site had an individual 30amp outlet, but only 2 water taps on the post, therefore "Y" taps would be needed. Not sure if the office supplies them, and not everyone carries one of their own (we do). It is a large well provisioned campground alongside the Rideau Canal Waterway. Lots to see in the local region...1000 Islands Boat Cruises, Kingston City Bus Tours, Casino, Over 30 Wineries within an hour. Grass was a little long, but it's late in the season. We will return. - kenandterry

Would not recommend this park, go to Walmart and save your money. Only review in 2006 so I should have known something wrong. All the things this owner was going to do, has never been done. No WiFi, sites are terrible to try to level up, are a combination of gravel and weeds which haven't been mowed for sometime. Price is $44.00 (instead of the posted $24.00). My fault. Should have checked sites out before paying. - Bill Dudley

Mostly seasonal sites, but welcome to travelers. Most sites are set up with services twined, and a large lawn w picnic tables between each set (you face each other's awning, instead of sewer h/u) but that means you need to drive forward into some back-in sites, not doable for a 5th wheel; check at the office how the site is oriented. Additional sites with pull-thrus are being developed in the open lot next door. Wireless is being added, according to the owner. Free use of boat launch with site, and dock space available for rent. Easy & quick access to seaway, and lovely. 7 mile walk to downtown riverfront. Town has many restored buildings, excellent restaurants, free riverfront concerts & weekly farmers market. Grocery 1+ block walk, ice cream stand next door. - readontheroad

Campground is on side of hill next to St. Lawrence. Roads are paved, few narrow overnight spots are grass. Many seasonal campers. Had to back out of pull through, couldn't make turns in 37 foot motorhome. Power and water good, cell (AT&T) weak. Campground OK, but probably look elsewhere next time. - kmgulf

The "office" is full of plastic storage bags. The manager did not approach us when we parked in the driveway. We stopped a car leaving the area to get advice on how to get out of this park. The park is on a hill and has few sites available for overnight guests. We used one of them to exit. We cannot recommend this for overnighting. - Yeager

A very small park for RVs in transit. (Apparently four sites on grass only). Almost entirely seasonal and park models. The office is not staffed, but the phone is wireless and answered by the caretaker. Nicely located to Thousand Islands and other great attractions. - consort

We stayed 1 night and would not stay again unless it was the last resort. Water, electric and sewer worked, but as others have said, the long term residents seem to have it better than the transients. They far out number the overnight people. We were led to our site from the wrong direction. We were expected to make an impossible turn with our dully and 33 foot 5th wheel. Once we got to the site, it was an OK sized pull through on grass. It had rained and the site was pretty squishy. We were able to set up our satellite dish. - RVLive

Only spent 1 night here, mostly seasonal sites. Was probably nice for the seasonals but not very friendly for ones just passing through. - sassy530

This is a really beautiful campground. The owners keep it well maintained, with staff constantly on patrol for garbage, cigarette butts, etc. Although there are no sewer hookups, there is free on-site pumping. Our site was a premium site with a patio. My only gripes are 1) they only allowed one Wi-Fi code per site despite the premium price we were paying. 2) Despite free sewage service, the price should be lower. 3) The dump station on the way out was next to impossible for the first row to use. One additional note, the store and bathrooms are not wheelchair accessible. Despite all, we really liked this campground and we will come back. - N1Hub

Beautiful camp ground in the thousand island area. The area is VERY dark, not many lights so it is advised that you arrive before sun down. The campground has an typical lay out, but what is NOT typical is some of the hook ups are located opposite where you would expect them and they alternate from site to site. The map is about useless since it doesn't really show where the hook ups are on the site. So you might get lucky and pull in the right way the first time, you might not. Especially if its after sun down. Regardless the campground is beautiful. Some great star watching at night can be had here. Typical KOA amenities. Outstanding location. - Aridon

Nice campground. Ample, level sites. Good views of the water. This is a fairly large campground where all units are removed for the winter. There are units parked for the summer, but none of the usual signs of full time campsites. The staff is friendly, the manager is quite helpful. We enjoyed our stay so we extended it by another day. It is a relatively quiet park even when filling up for the weekend. The only down side of our stay was the lack of water on our last day. Not sure how long it lasted, but there was no water when we left around 11:00. Until then the pressure and quality of water was excellent. All hookups were easy and well placed. Definitely plan a return visit. - Stephen20

The only thing this place has going for it is the view of Lake Ontario. You pay a premium for a "lakefront" site but most of them are blocked by bushes and are peripheral at best. The entire park is filthy. There is goose poop everywhere and the sites located at the front of the park smell like sewage and rotten lake matter. There is trash all along the lakefront. There was an old tire along the road the entire time we were here, and no one removed it. The dog park was disgusting: very small and full of waste.
The second day we were here, there was a dead fish in the dog park and it was never removed either.
The manager came out and yelled at the children on the jump pillow with a bullhorn. The staff was mostly rude and was not very happy to be asked about anything. The park was very overpriced and the sites were extremely narrow. I would never stay here again. - mary mcmoo

Stayed the week of 4th of July. The sunsets are amazing. Yes there are a few bugs but they weren't biting bugs. We would definitely stay here again. - bthomforde
