Welcome to Tentrr Camping in the Thousand Islands Seaway

When we think of archipelagos, those stretches of thousands of small islands, we often imagine tropical paradise: the green of Indonesia and Malaysia, or the beauty of Greece, or the calm emerald waters of the Carribean. But there’s an archipelago a little bit closer to home that makes for a great camping destination as well as offers a glimpse into a little known world: the Thousand Islands Seaway in New York, along the St. Lawrence River. This archipelago is made up of 1700 islands that are covered with State Parks and campgrounds and make for a quie rest to get away from the business of everyday life.

Although there is silence and relaxation to be found on nearly every one of the thousand islands (some have no inhabitants at all) Burnham Point is a great starting point, with a quiet secluded park with camping, boating, fishing and relaxing. From a boat, you can tour up and down the river, stopping in at small towns, local islands, and historic sites. Fishing is great and has a selection of bass, pike, walleye, and muskellunge. The camping at the park has playgrounds, boat dock, and picnic areas, and is renowned for being a place of refuge off the beaten path.

For a more rustic experience, try this Canoe-Picnic park, which is only available by boat. Launching from Clayton, NY, this quiet wooded island retreat includes a camping area just north of Picnic Point. At the point is a beautiful gazebo, a dinner cooking facility, and boat docks. It is said that the fishing here is top notch. In the right season and with permits, hunting is allowed.

Located by Fineview, Dewolf is a small camping and cabin village is the gateway to Wellesley Island State Park, and in the winter there’s ice fishing.

The largest camping community in the Thousand Islands Seaway, with 432 campsites, is Wellesley Island. Fishing will bring in perch, smallmouth bass, muski, and pike. A full service marina makes boating easy and enjoyable, and the sandy beach gives swimmers and sunbathers something to look forward to. There is also a 9-hole golf course in the park, as well as a camp store, laundromat and arcade.

One of the biggest attractions is the Minna Anthony Common Nature Center, with educational displays and 3 miles of shore line for hiking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. One of the most notable parts of the nature center is the butterfly house.

Jumping off from Redwood, NY, Kring Point is a peninsula with the north shore facing Goose Bay and the south facing the St. Lawrence River. No matter where you stand in the park you can see water in one direction or the other, making it an ideal place for boating, fishing and swimming.
