A couple people have recommended the Ivy Lea Campground right beside the bridge to the USA. Beware that if you camp there you will hear traffic, including large tractor trailers, crossing the bridge all night. If you're a light sleeper it will be a problem. Better to go west a couple of miles towards Gananoque and stay at the Ivy Lea KOA.
Things to do on the Canadian side:
- Boat tours. For a day cruise, I recommend taking a boat tour out of Rockport
. Their smaller boats can get you closer to the islands. Gananoque
has larger boats and a 3-course dinner cruise if you prefer that.
- Drive the 1000 Islands Parkway. A nice, scenic drive stretching 40 km (25 miles) from just west of Brockville in the east, to Gananoque in the west.
. It used to be the capital of Upper Canada. A beautiful, historic city - especially along the waterfront and downtown.
- Old Fort Henry
is a must see. It's a fort built for the War of 1812 between the United States and the British Colonies and their native allies (Canada became it's own country in 1867). There are lots of ceremonies happening daily. Try to see the sunset ceremony.
- Upper Canada Village
. A reproduction of village life back in the 1860's.
Note that the Long Sault Parkway and Upper Canada Village are not really in the 1000 Islands are but a bit farther east, both east of Morrisburg, ON.
