Thousand Islands National Park invites you to experience its magic. Paddle the St. Lawrence River’s blue-green waters past remote granite shoreline and historic estates. Tour by powerboat and camp in serenity at an island dock. Reserve a waterfront oTENTik for convenient, comfortable overnighting in nature. Picnic at a scenic riverside greenspace, just off Highway 401. The Thousand Islands are an idyllic blend of accessibility and wilderness within a pristine river ecosystem.
