Ivy Lea Campground
Note: Transient launch is open, but dock remains unavailable due to high water levels in the area.
Located in the heart of the majestic Thousand Islands (1000 Islands) and at the foot of the towering Thousand Islands Bridge, this jewel of the St. Lawrence Parks system offers 146 campsites and 4 Camper Cabins set amid the granite and greenery of the Frontenac Arch Biosphere Reserve (one of only 15 in Canada).
It is a haven for scuba divers, boaters of all types and fans of the gilded era of history that spawned some of the most luxurious cottage estates in Canada and the United States. In fact, the home across the bay from the campground was recently listed at $18,000,000.
Nearby attractions include Fort Henry, Boldt Castle, several boat tour operators and the picturesque Village of Rockport. Ivy Lea is located on the Thousand Islands Parkway which is one of the most beautiful scenic drives in North America. Just 20 kilometres east on the Parkway is Brown's Bay Beach which offers swimming, picnic areas, a playground, boat launch facilities and an impressive view of Dark Island's Singer Castle from its beach. The Parks of the St. Lawrence's newest attraction, Skywood Eco Adventure Park, is located nearby at the old Brown's Bay Campground. Skywood features ziplines, canopy tours, aerial games and a large children's treehouse play area.
