The very best thing about this park is the scenery. No matter where you are, you're waterfront! Our spot was "Lake View" (as opposed to 2 grades of premium lake view) which means we had 2 rows of RVs between us and the lake. But that left PLENTY of lake view and at a much better price than the more expensive premium spots that would have come in at about twice the price.

This was our first KOA and the fairly solid reputation of the chain was maintained here. Lots of activities for adults and kids including a huge inflatable bounce contraption that was actually kind of fun, even for this 48 year old body!

The grounds are very well maintained and clean. They do morning trash pickup site-by-site which I thought was nice, but by design trash bins did not seem readily apparent for self-disposal. When we didn't want to wait for the morning pickup we walked over to the islands trash area. I'm sure there's a reason for this but I don't know what it is.

This was actually the first time we never left the park during our entire stay. Watertown is about 15 miles away and there are a couple of tiny towns a little closer. There's a store on-site with basics as a convenience and there's a pretty good pizza place that regularly delivers to the island.

I would rate it 10/10 if the value was a bit better. KOAs are known to be a little pricy and while there was decent value in our 3rd tier spot, we'd have preferred a premium spot but couldn't stomach the premium price. We will definitely stay here again though! We camped at 1000 Islands / Association Island KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Pizza Shack delivers to the island for a $4 delivery fee. The chicken wings are very good.

We stayed here after realizing Memorial Day Weekend was early this year and wanted to stay in the western New York area. We were very pleased to find they had plenty of spots available, especially during the kickoff weekend to the camping season. The sites are open, no shade, but during that time of year a little sun made it nice and warm. All of the hookups worked well and the site was level, no need for blocks. The view of Lake Ontario was beautiful and made it nice to walk the dogs with a wonderful view. We did arrive a few days before most and noticed the grass at our site had not been cut. We saw all the sites around us that were open get cut, but not ours. After I asked the office about cutting our lawn, they sent someone to take care of it, but it was done so quickly, they might as well have not even showed up. We were not able to use the fire ring at our site because it was so close to the RV, so we wound up using one at the empty site behind us. The biggest downside was the may flies. They hit their peak during the time we were there and probably counted in the millions. The don't bite, but the second you open your door, they start to swarm in. I spent each night vacuuming them off the ceiling and lights. Aside from that it was a very enjoyable stay. We would definitely stay again, but outside of the may fly season. We camped at 1000 Islands / Association Island KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Campsites were level and hookups were in the right location. Rain made this campground a pond with mosquitoes and mayflies everywhere. Sunsets were great. Location is pretty but for the price it's not worth it. We camped here in a 40' motorhome. We camped at 1000 Islands / Association Island KOA in a Motorhome.

We registered online with KOA;, however, when we arrived they told us they wouldn't honor the space we reserved. We had wanted a lake view and that seemed possible seeing as though it was an island. The young man working the desk was kind and wanted to please us, but the older grumpy man must have outranked him. We ended up in a corner space that had an abandoned building on one side and a stand of unkempt trees behind us. It felt like we were outcasts. The mayflies are bad and get into everything! As far as food and supplies, bring it in with you, because there is nothing nearby! However, it was one of the most beautiful places we've ever stayed. We camped at 1000 Islands / Association Island KOA in a Tent Trailer.

The only reason I didn't rate this park a 10 is that I try to reserve that perfect score for perfection. This campground comes close. This is a newly designated KOA with a long and varied history. Gravel sites are wide and roomy. There's a view of the lake from virtually everywhere. Bath houses are clean and modern. If you are into boating and water sports, this island, with its marina, would be heaven. The few downsides: Cable at our site didn't work -- off air stations were reasonably strong. Wi-Fi was OK, but I used my 4G cellular data service most of the time. Depending on the time of year you are here the bugs and Canada geese can be annoying. But heck, its an island. This is our second visit here, the first was in pre-KOA days, and we would definitely come back again. This is a true destination RV park.

This must be a great spot for IN SEASON time. We were not there at that time. Don't get me wrong . This place is great just to sit relax and watch the lake. The sunsets are fabulous. The sunrise and great also. Sitting at a fire watching the sun go down is relaxing. When we arrived we were greeted by a goose, and hundreds of their friends. You know what a goose can do--I mean doo-doo on the ground. It's everywhere. In defense of the KOA, it's the location and the time of year. This place was literally empty. With a crowd the geese would not be there....I don't think. Don't miss the boat ride and the town at Alexandria Bay. Millionaires row is a site of opulence in another generation. The food and bars are great too. We camped at 1000 Islands / Association Island KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a good park for fishing and boating. Sites were level. Wifi average to poor. Cable fair. Watertown shopping 25 min away. On the first morning we were engulfed by thousands of may flies. When I asked about them I was given a sheet that also included the Canadian geese info and advised against walking on the grass to avoid their dropping. Also advised about the smell from the lake. WE did not have the smell but lots of bugs and geese. We camped at 1000 Islands / Association Island KOA in a Motorhome.

The rate reflects an out of season discount prior to the park closing 15 October for the winter. Both the Wi-FI and cable worked well. The setting is an island one mile into Lake Ontario is has exceptional views from just about every site. Because of the distance from shopping, the ability and desire to remain in the park for your activities would be helpful. Though I would certainly stay here again, I would not be willing to pay their normal rates. We camped at 1000 Islands / Association Island KOA in a Motorhome.

If you’re traveling down Interstate 81 and need a stop, or if you’re looking for a destination, this is a wonderful place to stay. This large gated park is on a peninsula surrounded by Lake Ontario complete with its own marina. This is a great place if you’re a Class A of any size because the water front lots that surround the park are all pull-ins so your windshield looks out over the water, beautiful! The park has two sides, sunrise and sunset, both are equally nice. The road around the grounds is hard packed gravel with no sharp turns or close trees and easy in and out level gravel sites. Trees line the waters edge and some are scattered thru out the park but few will block your satellite dish. A farm house was converted into bathrooms, showers, laundry, TV room, game room, and play room, all clean and well maintained. Sprint phone and 3G worked well. Free park WI-FI was slow and limited, but you can pay a small fee for faster Internet. Staff was friendly and helpful. We pulled our 40ft Class A with 4 slides into a lake front spot that had lots of room to spread out in and enjoy the water just remember, you’re on lake Ontario, so never leave your awning out unattended. The park also has a lot of rec facilities and hosts functions. We camped at 1000 Islands / Association Island KOA in a Motorhome.

The waterfront sites are very nice, especially the sunrise side, which is a little less frenetic. Views are superb of Lake Ontario. Interior sites are treeless and tight. Great if you have a boat. Cable has terrible reception, but over the air broadcasts are good from Watertown and Syracuse. Wi-Fi is horrible, slowest I have ever seen, and it costs extra. Paved roads, gravel sites and grass. It is a special place out on an island in the lake. Association Island has a unique history as well. I'd go back if in the area. We camped at 1000 Islands / Association Island KOA in a Motorhome.

After a recommendation from several campers on the RV.net, we reserved 4 nights and possibly 5 at this campground. We were so surprised with the gorgeous views of Lake Ontario and the Harbor. This place is wonderful. Cable very good, views amazing, hookups were good, too. I would return here anytime and recommend it highly.

Great campground. We had site H22 on the sunrise side that was large and had a beautiful view. Had originally requested a sunset view but after arriving and walking around, we are really glad we got the sunrise. Sites were more quiet and the bad odor others have mentioned was not on the H site area at all. We only stayed 4 nights but plan to spend at least a week or two next summer. Close enough to Sackets Harbor to go for great meals, especially Tin Pan Galley with their delicious, HUGE breakfasts. The stuffed French Toast is a must. Back to the campground: this is a beautiful campground on an island all to itself surrounded by Lake Ontario. We camped at 1000 Islands / Association Island KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Average. At check I asked if they had more than one site to choose from. I was told they were busy. Stayed all weekend at least 1/3 of the sites remained empty the whole time. They had a guide lead us to our site, but he paid no attention to what he was doing smoking a cigar, leading us down the road around vehicles we could not pass without driving off the road. The site we were given had our awning 3.5ft from our neighbors sewer connection. We called and asked for another site we saw open and they said that was OK. No organized activities other than a live band Sat night that was not announced. We just heard it. The pool was nice. The sites looked fairly level, but some would need leveling. Your site choice will make or break the stay. It's along Lake Ontario so it had beautiful views and sites on the water, but odd hook ups with sewer on both sides and electric on the passenger side. So depending on how your neighbor positioned their unit you could be camping with them. The mayflies where bad, huge swarms, but they don't bite or land on you, just watch walking or riding and talking or you could get a mouth full.

We have been staying here for most of the last 7 years. Usually for 2 weeks ever since the made a effort alter the sites to allow backing in of trailers. This year they went out of there way to provide great service in the form of weed removal so we could have access to the water behind our fifth wheel camper. This campground is wonderful as far as we are concerned and would recommend it to anyone especially if the like water views and access.
