Thousand Islands National Park (established 1904), formerly known as the St. Lawrence Islands National Park, is a Canadian National Park located on the 1000 Islands Parkway in the Thousand Islands Region of the Saint Lawrence River. The islands are actually the worn-down tops of ancient mountains. This region, the Frontenac Axis, connects the Canadian Shield from Algonquin Park in Ontario to the Adirondack Mountains in New York.

The park consists of 21 islands plus many smaller islets, 2 mainland properties and a visitor centre at Mallorytown, Ontario on the mainland. It is one of Canada's smallest national parks with a total area of 24.4 square kilometres (9.4 sq mi).

Much of the park is only accessible by boat. Trail systems can be found on the mainland along the 1000 Islands Parkway at Mallorytown Landing, Jones Creek and Landon Bay. There are picnic, camping and oTENTik facilities on several islands and at Mallorytown Landing. Mallorytown Landing is a day use area that offers a large parking, a boat ramp, several oTENTiks, picnic gazebos, play ground, animal exhibits, travelling exhibits, and interpreters.
The Frontenac Arch Biosphere Reserve, in which the park is located, is known for being the most biodiverse region in Canada.

  • A very historic national park, this is a great spot to visit. With several pretty hiking trails, it is well worth grabbing the camera and heading out!

  • Nice spot to go camping, hiking or even have an outdoor picnic with your family. There’s a small fee of about $6-8 you’ve to pay on arrival at the visitor centre if you plan to hike or spend a couple of hours. Very scenic but if you’ve pets please remember to pick up after them.
  • Beautiful place! We took a City experiences a 5-hour cruise with a Boldt Castle stopover. Great way sightseeing the Park!
  • Was a great experience, despite heavy rain in the morning we decided to go as its closed deck. But we lucky as rain stopped just before boarding. Staff on ground and on board was very helpful and professional. We enjoyed the lunch in the upper deck as it was included in the package we chose. Overall it was beautiful experience and we had great views from the ship.
  • Beautiful area, we visited during summer when the weather was amazing. Lots of things to do in the region. Would highly recommend exploring the islands from the water either by renting a boat or taking a sightseeing tour. We rented a sea-doo to explore ourselves which was a great experience. There are lots of beaches and park along the coast to relax and swim, countless opportunities for water sports (kayaking, paddle boarding etc) and great places to walk. We staying in a lovely hotel up the St Lawrence river in Brockville but camping and log cabins are another option. However not sure if I would recommend in the summer given the heat and humidity.
  • It was 3.30 hrs journey from Mississauga to reach the rockport board line to start our journey to 1000 islands. Since it was a long weekend we had a journey of around 5.39 hrs to reach the place. But though it is, we were not at all disappointed with the spectacular views of 1000 islands. We took the rickport cruise with 2 hours trip for our island plan. Everywhere the view from the cruise is awesome, no words to express the sceneries.
