10 Parks near Lancaster, Ontario
Sep 2013 - $38.00
This past weekend my family and I spent the weekend at in the non-serviced sites by the water (422). The view at this site was amazing! This came with a premium of extra $$$ per night which is fully understandable. What is unacceptable was the pile of rubbish that was within 100ft of our campsite. At first I thought it was just a large pile of wood to be burned in the off season. However upon closer inspection I saw there was garbage bags, old furniture, and even baby diapers within the pile. I find this disgusting and I feel that this should not be considered acceptable at any campground, especially when paying a premium. Second issue was on the Saturday night there was some sort of volunteer party being held on site. This party went on until 2 am with loud music and screaming that could be heard from our site. What was even worse was to arrive at the men's bathroom the next morning with my son only to find what i believe to be vomit in one of the urinals. Overall we had an enjoyable weekend but due to the above mentioned negative points I would not consider coming back. Very beautiful campsite but what I witnessed this weekend makes me wonder about respect for fellow campers. - highguage

We primarily chose this campground for a weekend getaway due to its proximity to Montreal. You can’t beat a drive of about an hour! The campground is well laid out and has a choice of primitive sites as well as those with power and others with both power and water. Ours had both and the rate reflects this. There are two playgrounds and some organized activities for younger kids. The views of the St. Lawrence, the ship traffic, the south shore of the river and the foothills of the Adirondacks on the horizon are spectacular. One downside was the train horns at night. We ran our ventilation fan the second night and that helped. Also, although they do their best to clean it up daily, there was Canada Goose poop on the beach. Lastly, while swimming, the kids and I went out too far (beyond the sandy area) and cut our feet on zebra mussels, which we didn’t know were a hazard! We reported it to the friendly and helpful staff and they posted warnings right away. Despite these hitches, we'll certainly go to this campground again. - Hit The Road

We visited this Provincial park in May. It was still too cool for the beach. The campground features many shaded camp sites as well as those that are more exposed. Like most Ontario Provincial parks, there are no full hookup sites. The centrally located dump station offers easy access. The campground is located along Lake St Francis where there is lots of fishing. The premises were clean and well maintained. Since it was early in the season, we were practically the only ones there. That was great. The bicycle path just outside the campground takes you out to some very picturesque areas. We have come to this campground several times and enjoy each visit. - dmfcamper

Finally a campsite with elbow room! Our pull through site was level, about 40 feet wide, with nice tree cover. Nice to have some space and some privacy. Tired of RV parks where the next trailer's slide out is almost under your canopy and you feel like a sardine.
Not here with children, but this park is well equipped with a children's playground, playing field and a large pirate boat!
Park is well maintained and owners are very pleasant and helpful!
Above said – if train whistles in the night bother you, I would avoid this park as there is an active rail line a few kilometers away. - Doug RV

Recent reviews are accurate. Very friendly and accommodating. We were only staying overnight, and so the price was too high for us, but it's a very nice clean camp with many activities for all ages. We would not stay again for an overnight stop, but for those wanting to stay and visit the 1000 island area it would be fine. - 36' Titanium

Started camping this year. This was the second site we had tried and the one we have liked the best. People are so friendly. Owners do want to please. They have tons of activities for kids. It's so welcoming and family oriented. We will definitely be going there again. - melspring25

This campground was easy to access from the highway and easy to get around in. It is located on a nice small river and we enjoyed a good cookout and music gathering on the weekend. The grass pull-through sites are not level and we had to request a different site because we could not get leveled even with blocks. The friendly owners put us on another site that was a little more level. We only had 30 amps and low voltage did cause us some issues when running one A/C and the water heater. The Wi-Fi was slow and there is no cable or OTA channels available and we had a weak Verizon signal. They were a Passport America campground but dropped out. Even with these issues we enjoyed this park and would stay here again if in the area. - dandg

We have stayed here before on our way east and it continues to be our choice. We had a pull-through so did not need to detach the toad. Nice owners and mostly Canadian campers. Place is for sale so someone has a great opportunity here. - Aftica

We had driven by this campground a number of times over the years and thought it looked inviting. We finally found time to stop for one night to check it out, and I hope we have the opportunity to return. Very quiet, clean and well maintained. Sites are right sized. We had a spot backing on to the "babbling brook" and it was so relaxing. It was quiet mid-week but must pick up on weekends because they were advertising all sorts of activities and meals for free or close to it. However, no pool and not much in the way of a playground for kids. The lady in the office seemed unfriendly at first but warmed when I returned to the office later. And... their mobile RV service recommendation, Adirondack Campers, is unbelievable. I had a hydraulic problem. He came over within 20 minutes and had the problem fixed in another 20, and for a more than reasonable rate. Rating is 8 only because recreational facilities are limited. - Voyageurs

Very large open field for non-seasonal campers. Over the weekend it filled up almost completely and Wi-Fi did not exist. After weekend was over and campground emptied, Wi-Fi worked well. I would stay here again as it's close to family. One negative note, if you use a credit card for payment you will be charged an additional $6. - Jack&Wanda

This campground is conveniently located on the U.S. side in Massena, NY, approximately 5-minutes from the Ontario Canadian border, and offers over 100 RV sites, as well as a few cabins and tent sites. Entrance/exit to the campground is easy for big rigs to maneuver. The majority of the campsites are back-in, although there are a few that are pull through. The lawns are very well manicured, roads are very well maintained, and sites are level. Guests and staff are very friendly. Very little shade throughout the campground, so satellite reception is almost guaranteed, however, cable TV (77 stations) is offered on many sites. Amenities at the campground consist of swimming pool, restrooms, shower facilities, firewood, LP gas, laundry facilities, groceries (limited), gift shop, pavilion, volleyball, horseshoes, basketball, playground, dump station, and 20/30/50 AMP service. We stayed here for 3-nights in our Class A motorhome and we would definitely stay here again when passing through the area. - The Diesel Gypsies

We have been camping here for about six years and return every year for two weeks. Over the years we have come to know the staff and enjoy chatting with them. The owner is in tune with her clientele and always suggests sites according to their needs. Along with a great crew of family and friends, the campground is kept immaculate. Regular meal weekends are offered and very popular. We love the river sites but settle well on just about any site. Even within close distance of one another, the staggered layout allows for privacy on the lots.
We love camping here and plan to continue for years to come! - Off to Camp

Great spot for a layover. Nice clean well kept park. Close to highway so some noise. Occasional trains as well but not too often. Strong fast wifi included in price. Sites wide and long enough for any big rig. 50 amp strong, water pressure a little weak but usable. Plenty of OTA tv available, more from the US than locals, strange. - MJB

We stayed four nights in our 34' rig with tow dolly and vehicle. The Managers are the nicest people. The park was very clean. There are trains that go by, but they didn't bother us. It's a great park for children. There are a lot of permanent residents, but they are all upscale units and settings. - Jo and Bob

Paid CAN $ - do not know the US equivalent. Staff were efficient and friendly. Services were good. Not a lot of space between sites but adequate for awning extension. Only real issue here was the need to provide gravel to fill low spots in sites. Rain overnight left minnie lakes that had to walk through to get to truck. Would not hestitate to stay again. - cdude

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

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
