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! We camped at Long Sault Parkway - McLaren Campground in a Tent Trailer.

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. We camped at Long Sault Parkway - McLaren Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Date of Stay: August, 2005 - $32.00
Part of the St. Lawrence Parks off the Long Sault Parkway (a series of islands on the Canada side of St. Lawrence). Must get permit at East Gate. Some sites not very level. Picnic table and fire ring. Small beach was posted when we were there due to rain and geese. Dump station sign said NO chemicals so we just dumped our grey water tank. Wish we had known about that when we got there. Has area to launch a small boat. Sites on the water have no hook-ups. Fills up on weekends. We camped at Long Sault Parkway - McLaren Campground in a Motorhome.
