We stayed here to sightsee the 1000 Islands - it was perfect for that. It has more amenities than we wanted or needed but we had a motor home so small campgrounds might have been a tight fit. If you take the Thousand Island Parkway the views are best if you start at Brock and drive south - it is...

It was okay, I can't say excellent. I personally like more of the provincial parks or conservation areas. However the park was very clean, and the activities planned daily were nice. The pool is VERY small. The tent sites are really not that great - very small. We had an unserviced site number 27 .. no shade but grassy and...

We stayed at the Ivy Lea KOA at the beginning of August, myself, my husband our 5 and 1 yr old and a set of grandparents. We booked a tent site with water and power and it was great. The site was pretty big lots of room for our 222 sq ft/ 4 room tent, eating gazebo, fire pit area...

Information given on the phone was incorrect about the campsite. We were charged full for the two nights. We camp every year with our families and was not happy. When we brought the issues to management and owner they were not resolved. Customer service is HORRIBLE. Owner was nastier than the manager. Do not go there.

This is our 5th stay here and we absolutely love it. We were on site 74 for 9 days and had a 5 year old with us. The activities kept her entertained all week and Patricia and Danielle were both great with the kids. Daily ventures to the park and the bouncing pillow were a must. Our site was clean...

We recently stayed a week at 1000 Islands/Ivy Lea KOA. My wife and I agree that this is one the best campgrounds we have stayed at. Location is great for exploring the 1000 Islands area. We were able to shop, eat, and tour in both Gananoque and Kingston. The pool area is probably the highlight of the resort and a...

We booked here very last minute because the place we regularly camp was overun with State troopers looking for two escaped convicts. Anyways, we always camp somewhere with a lake. This was our first experience camping with so many amenities. The weather was calling for rain during most of our stay, so we booked here because it had a heated...

Stayed here this past fathers day weekend. Sites are close to one another all have good size mature trees for shade and privacy. Huge playground for kids that’s very clean and in perfect shape, also has a giant “jumping pillow” which is basically a MASSIVE trampoline, tons of fun even for adults! Nice main building, small pool area but also...

We stayed three nights and they couldn't do enough for us. The campground is clean, quiet and well maintained. They have lots of amenities and activities for children. We were close to several boat tour companies in the 1000 Islands.
