Where The Tradition Continues...
Mar 2021
1000 Islands New York is taxing my family to death from town water and sewer project we are NOT connected to or using. This place will kill somebody you love with drug addiction and it supports alcoholism, Born and raised spending most of my days bored with hardly no job opportunity. This is where you come to die and collect disability and welfare. The weather sucks, the locals are stuck up and racist. We pay 40+ grand in taxes a year for muddy water front property next to a new scrap yard (solar panels). Highly DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE!

The Thousand Islands are wonderful. There is a lot to do and see and lots of places to eat and just enjoy nature.

Closed For The Season
Oct 2020 • Couples
We drove around the area in late October. Most everything was closed up because the season was over. The wind was blowing like crazy. It is still a beautiful area to explore. I bet it is mobbed in season. If you have ever been to Maine it is similar to OOB.

Bad Experience

This should be on everyone’s one bucket list, NOT.
If you are a person who supports kindness, racial equality, BLM, the LGBQIA+ community, etc., etc., DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT visit. Yes the views are amazing, the history interesting, and the castles are enchanting, but it stops there. The local stores carry anti gay t-shirts and bumper stickers that are truly offensive, and pro Trump shirts are in abundance both, on the rack, or people wearing them.
We are a racially mixed family and are trying to get out of our reservations because we do not feel safe here since barely anyone has made us feel welcomed.
I have never written a review like this before and I hope I never have to again. When did the North become the Deep South.

Gorgeous vacation destination
Jul 2020 • Family
The Thousand Islands area is a must see travel destination. We will definitely be back. While visiting, boating is a must. If you rent a boat, avoid Bayside Marina! See my other reviews. We had to file a police report and a fraud report with our bank. There are several other much more reputable marinas in the area just make sure you check reviews. Wellesley Island state park in a beautiful place to camp and visit. Lots of wineries and breweries and of course, make sure you get a bottle of the original Thousand Island dressing. End your day with an incredible sunset and a gorgeous nighttime sky.

So much to do and see in the 1000 islands. Loads of history, great to experience as a family. Slower pace, gorgeous surroundings. Highly recommend the getaway.

Amazing time
Jul 2020
Had a great vacation camping with friends. We rented a boat and visited Alexandria Bay and Clayton and swam in the lake of Isles, we stayed at Wellesley Island State Park. Just watch out for the Canadian police who were pulling over boaters left and right and giving them ridiculous fines for crossing into Canadian waters
