Campground

There’s nothing better than pitching your tent on an island to feel like you’ve reached the ends of the earth. Camp on one of the 61 rustic campsites, spread among several islands. Access the islands by boat. If you don’t have one, take the opportunity to rent a canoe or a kayak, go on a guided kayak trip or take a shuttle to your campsite. Facilities vary from island to island, please visit the park website for information about facilities and services and pick the island best suited to your needs. Now set up your tent, stoke up your fire, and take in thousands of stars while in the Thousand Islands.
