Thousand Islands National Park stewards 20 islands and three scenic mainland properties on the St. Lawrence River. Here rugged shorelines mingle with opulent Gilded Age estates to create a surprising and enchanting landscape.

Guests explore islands and riverside environments that have been the summer home of Haudenosaunee and Mississauga Anishinaabe First Nations for millennia. Visitors get a taste of island life with an overnight stay in oTENTik accommodations at the park’s waterfront visitor centre. Some pilot their own powerboat into the park—camping at a dock to enjoy riverside days spotting birdlife among the pines. Intrepid explorers paddle in by kayak or canoe—guided or independent—and tour these islands in total serenity. Others arrive via water-taxi to unwind at an island oTENTik or campsite.

However you choose to experience Ontario’s Thousand Islands National Park, this accessible wilderness will foster a lifetime of treasured memories.
