update on last years review. The state greatly improved the beach since last year. They put in a new retaining wall and brought in literally tons of sand. It was much larger and very clean. They also built a new bath house at the beach. We were once again in loop B which has electric. We had 4G Verizon and our hot spot worked well. Be careful when you book sites since some are at a steep and angle and reserve america doesn't indicate if they are steep or not. We saw loons, deer, and red squirrels every day. Older son did some mountain biking on the trails and liked them.This year we kayaked as well as used their 7 mile trail system. If you want a campground with tall pines and extra spacious sites, this is a wonderful choice. However, it is not a resort campground. - PENNY

Great state park, hilly and wooded on the Raquette River Reservoir. We were impressed with the modern shower buildings! There are 2 central shower buildings and the one near loops A and B was almost new. Each shower has its own room with a toilet, sink, bench, and mirror. Loops A and B were full but there wasn't a line for the showers. We stayed in loop B and the sites along the river had filtered river views and you could walk down fish and kayak from the sites. The pads were asphalt and spacious. Read the site description since some pads were steeply angled and others had large trees next to them. Verizon cell coverage and our hotspot worked well but it was 3G so graphic intensive sites didn't load. Beach buildings were dated and the beach was really non-existent, just grass down to the river bank then step down into the river. Good but hilly biking. There are about 10 miles of hiking trails in the park. We saw a deer grazing along the opposite river bank early one morning. We will return. - PENNY

Beautiful state park with electric and non electric sites. We used a MH on site #31 which was nice and level and there are a wide variety of types available. No black flies here as they treat for them. Restrooms and showers can be a small hike but you have beautiful scenery to see along the way. Plenty of hiking and biking and a small beach on the Raquette River. We camped in September but imagine this place would be full in summer. This is the best of all worlds. - naturepix

This is a seasonal campground with a few sites for transients. Nice small campground located in the village of Brasher Falls. You can walk to church and a restaurant. The sites are adequate and the seasonal campers we spoke to were very friendly. The electric was strong without any brownouts. (Yay!) However the water was had a yellow tint (1 point deduction). - PENNY

This is a State owned park. Very clean, on the shores of the St. Lawrence Seaway. Firewood available, they bring to spot. A variety of lot sizes, 4 dumping stations, power for big Rvs, tent sites. Grass is maintained, no dirt sites. Paved roads. We have been coming here a few times a year. No stores close by, pick up essentials in Ogdensburg or Massena. - The Allens

Our family camps here every summer. We love it.
Right on the St. Lawerence Seaway . It is gorgeous! Canada is right across the River. We enjoy fishing and swimming.
Most sites are grass with some trees on almost every site. We love section A which is electricity at every site 30 amp . Water spickets through out area to fill holding tanks before parking. Dumping station available before leaving. This section is pet friendly.
Picnic table and fire places at every site.
We have no problem parking our 36 foot fifth wheel. - Lor-perh

Excellent campground offering variety of sites with and w/o electric. On the St. Lawrence River. Mostly grassy sites, some paved and gravel. Some sites will flood if excessive rain is rec'd. Friendly personnel, will deliver wood if ordered. Wifi thru regional carrier per day fee. - naturepix

Nice park that only the Federal Govt could provide. Senior's get 1/3 off all year in the older Cedars section of this park and that comes with two free tickets to nearby Upper Canada Village. These discounted sites are either unserviced or with 15 amp electric but come with a beautiful view of the Seaway and shipping traffic. There are full service sites available in the newer part of the park. Dump station, potable water and toilet/shower house nearby. - Smasma

Very large grassy sites with shade trees scattered throughout park.
There was enough room on our site (and most sites) to just drive in and swing around into place, rather than trying to back in. - DCM/JMB

Nearly all sites were sunny, pleasant location, vast, well mowed grassy areas that were well tended - great for walking dogs. Seagulls loved the location, right next to the river, we watched with amusement at camp host who exercised his setter several times a day, chasing the gulls away, seemed very effective. The host was extremely helpful and guided us to our site - clean facilities. Our spot required only minor leveling, no obvious traffic noise from the HWY. - Dondi-496

First, the good: the park is a huge grassy area right on the St. Lawrence River, with shade trees at most sites. The customer service was outstanding and all of the staff very friendly. The sites were quite large, and although not very private, at least you weren't parked on top of your neighbors. The park is heavily patronized by day visitors, so its a little noisy during the day, but wonderfully quiet at night.
The bad: the site I was at and the one next to it had no water hookups, so the staff ran several hundred feet of their hose to our trailers. The water was very filmy for a day, probably due to sediment in the hose. Also, the water was too hot to shower with except early in the morning or late at night, because the hose was lying out in the sun. Since there were no sewers at the sites, you couldn't just run the hot water through till you got to cool water, because there was so much water in the length of hose they had. The water pressure was fine, though. Another issue I had was with the Wi-Fi. I don't mind when I get somewhere with no Wi-Fi, but I do mind being sold Wi-Fi by a third party who does not provide what is offered. The Wi-Fi service is run by a young man who does not have the skills required to keep it running. Also, he would not return phone calls or answer his phone most of the time. I will have to go to my credit card company for a refund. I do not think the park should keep sponsoring this individual. The service crashed for over a day and the young man told me he could not fix it because it was Sunday. It still was not fixed Monday. Finally, the seasonal residents next to me had several dogs that barked continually while I was there. I think the park management should handle this, rather than making visitors responsible for complaining to people who are obviously not well mannered in the first place. For these reasons, a park with fairly good potential was not the greatest experience for me. - KAP99

Stayed Upper Canada Migratory Bird Sanctuary & Nature Campsite and will definitely return there. Most sites are very wide, giving you ample room to backup/setup your trailer. The washrooms/showers are well maintained and are clean. Numerous trails to walk/bike on. Wonderful view of the St Lawrence so you can watch the passing freighters. - GandRHarris

This is a very pleasant camp ground in a grassed "park" setting. Most sites are shaded with mature trees, some sites are in the open. A few sites have a nice view of Lake St. Lawrence but no views of Seaway shipping. Most of the sites have reasonably level driveways. Sites have both water and electric, dump station easy to use. The road into the park is long and mostly washboard gravel. - JTD2

This campground is actually in Ingleside just down the road from the Farran Park and is part of the Parks of the St. Lawrence group. There is a long washboard gravel road leading to the park itself but once there apart from the poorly maintained inside roads it's all good..a great view of the ships going by on the St. Lawrence river..large, well-spaced sites. individual showers, clean washrooms, a great Interpretive Centre and friendly staff. No real security and office is a good jaunt from the campground itself but this is a quiet area. - Ron and Lynda

Rate based on weekly stay. This is a real campground complete with fire pits, a pond, two pools, 3 playgrounds so lots of people and lots of kids. There is a laundry room with 2 washers and 2 dryers but no place to hang up clothes. Sites are large. Drawbacks are no sewers but they do have a pump out service, pay showers and no paved roads. Very close to Upper Canada Village, short drive to Morrisburg for groceries. Campground has a store, a small snack bar, and a book exchange. Very few sites are internet satellite friendly. - Sandra

Check-in was fast. Young lady at check-in didn't provide directions to our site, as we booked online... They assumed that since we booked on-line, we know where the site is and hoe to get to it. Finally got to our back-in site, and site is the wrong way. Fire ring, picnic table (not there) were on the driver's side of the lot when backing in, which meant we would've had to go around the trailer to get to the fire ring and picnic table. Went back to the main office, and they clearly had no idea what I was talking about. I asked if I could then "pull-in" and drive on the grass, and was told, "it's ok, if no one sees you..." Went back to the site, pulled in, hooked up water and electric, only to remember we had no picnic table on our site. Back to main office, asked to get a picnic table, was told within 15 minutes. 3 hours later, still no picnic table. Went back to the office, told them, again... Within 10 minutes someone arrived with our table. I guess they dug it up from under the main office since it was EXTREMELY dirty... mud, spiders, spider webs, all kinds of critters and critters nest, and to top it all, was asked by the young lady delivering it, if I could get it out of the truck, since it's too heavy for her...
The campground itself is good, nice playground, a few seasonals but sites and trailers are well maintained. Location is awesome. Sites are HUGE, and I mean HUGE.
Campground is run by the Province, and staff could use a bit of client service course. They're not rude, they're obviously not RVer's, and therefore have no clue how to deliver good service. - Merveilleuse

There is an impressive view on the St.Lawrence River. There are great sites, with a small beach. When we camped, a lot of Giant Hogweed, a poisonous plant, was present on many sites, with caution signs. The sap from hogweed can cause blisters, burns, scarring and, in some cases, permanent blindness. The plant itself can grow to a dominating six metres. This apart, great place to stay! - pagir

Part of the St Lawrence Park Commission. There are two other campgrounds on the Long Sault Parkway. The eastern part of McLaren now has a crushed stone base for your RV, the western part is still on grass. Showers and dump station are a quarter mile east of the campground on the next island. Close to Upper Canada museum village, Upper Canada golf club and marina and the Battle of Crysler Farm National Historic site. 50 km of bike trails, beaches and family entertainment on summer weekends. Because of the large population of Canada geese beaches are occasionally closed because of a high bacteria count. - wpr

The other reviews have good descriptions of getting to the registration office, so check them out before getting there. Our site (187) had a great view of the Seaway and the entrance to the Eisenhower Lock. The view was so good that we pulled in with our motorhome, instead of backing in, to take advantage of the view through our front window. We saw several large ships pass by each day we were there. Our site was very long and quite wide, with plenty of vegetation to provide privacy. The restrooms were reasonably clean, although both the men's and women's showers had some mold on the grout that was unsightly. My wife and I chose instead to use the family bathroom facility that was mold free for showering to save on water and grey tank capacity in our motorhome. The bath facility was only about 150 feet across the street from our site, as was a water spigot for those needing a refill. The Verizon cell reception was excellent, with very good speeds from our Jetpack hotspot. There are a few local OTA TV stations available, with most broadcasting from nearby Canada, plus two from Watertown on the US side of the Seaway. Satellite reception from our site was excellent using our portable dish. There are numerous restaurants in nearby Massena, along with the usual big box stores, Walmart, etc. - NYDutch

Plenty of water taps on rings roads through the park, sites are clean mostly grass. This is a state run park. Main areas are large. Dump Station is far in another section of the park. Large beach. Planning to go back in the fall. - The Allens

There are a small number of sites that have an excellent view of the entrance to one of the Seaway locks. These sites are electric only and are on grass - all of them are large and most fairly level. Water taps with hose connections and garbage bins are relatively close. Out of state campers pay an additional $5 per night. Signage in the park is very poor - to get to the office bypass the Campground road, cross the bridge and turn left. The visitor parking area at the lock is very large and you can "camp" there for a few hours if you want a close look at the ships. - JTD2
