I'm in Kingston as well boubou and have camped many of the local parks. What's your preference? pools and hot tubs or beaches and trails? How about your privacy preference do you prefer the privacy of remote camping or smaller public sites where you can socialize? How does cost figure into your plans?

FYI: We're camping at the end of the month at Murphy's Point Provincial Park.

I will tell you a super campground right on the st. Laurence river.it is super quiet very big sites and you will not want to go elsewhere after. Come to the bird sanctuary campground at nairne ilsland. You will find a map of the campground at the st laurence park commission. It is close to morrisburg ontario

Hi, we like woods, hiking, biking, we have 2 dogs, a sheltie and a chihuahua. We like more space and privacy. I realize Ivy league KOA won't meet any of these criterias but this will be our very first time out and we wanted somewhere we wouldnt have to worry.
As far as cost goes, I don't mind paying premium if the site is worth it.

Hi, I've tried finding the site online but there is an error message on that campround. Perhaps you have a working link for it?

We haven't gone yet, too busy with family visiting and work. We are booked at the KOA at Ivy league Thousand Island for this upcoming weekend. Our first two nights. We've done tent camping before with no problems but this is a whole new experience for us. We now know how to hithc the tt and tv, with the reese dual cam wd, we drove it twice from the dealer to home and back for wd install. Drove a lot better than I expected it to. We drove the speed limit on highway 38 (80km/hr) and traffic, passed by tractor trailors and no problem with sway so far. Parked the tv in our s shaped parking lot, leveled it. So you can see, it's all new to us. It will be our first time everything. Hooking up, not sute, how do i know the hot water tank is full of water before turning the hydro switch on? And do i drain the hot water tank before we drive back home?
Do i have to worry about the gas to it if the hydro is on?

I'll take picture and show them off for sure

Boubou: go to ( nairne island camping) and you will be able to print a map of the camping. You will not regret this place it is the best of the word and while you are there go with your familly to Upper Canada Village for a full day in the past. It is a must to go there at least once in your life and this message is also for our friends from the U.S.A. as well. I am including a few pictures of Nairne ilsland camping. Good camping and for your info this camground close around october 23 rd.

Looks like we'll have to wait until next spring to go, the Thanksgiving weekend is booked up there. All the serviced sites are reserved. I see that they don't allow dogs on the beach or trails but are dogs allowed in the camping area?
Thanks for the tip, looks like a great place.

Yes they are allowed. Not allowing dogs at the beach make good cense and in the trails because there are a lots of deers roaming near the trails.
