Campground

Wellesley Island State Park is the largest camping complex in the Thousand Islands region. A few secluded wilderness sites nestled along the banks of the St. Lawrence River are accessible only by foot or boat. Within this rustic paradise, fishing is excellent–particularly for muskie in autumn. To accommodate boaters, the park has a 150 slip marina and four boat launches. A sandy beach on the river offers great swimming and sunbathing and there is a camp store, laundromat, arcade and 9-hole golf course on the Island. One of the main attractions of the park is the Minna Anthony Common Nature Center, which includes educational exhibits, live animals, varied habitats such as wooded wetlands, 3 miles of shoreline and open granite outcrops, and miles of trails for hiking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and nature education. The Nature Center provides educational and recreational programs for all ages. Pets must have proof of current rabies vaccination. Certificate of innoculation is required.

One special feature at the nature center is the 1/4 mile handicapped trail that includes access to picnic tables and the seasonal butterfly house. For the less rugged camper, there are regular tent/trailer sites and a cabin colony, including facilities for group camping and twelve vacation cottages, which will enable you to enjoy the sunset from the porch. You can choose a two or three bedroom cottage with all the comforts of home, including a bathroom with shower, kitchen with refrigerator and stove, bedding, cooking utensils, dishes, glassware, silverware, etc. Outside each vacation rental, a picnic table and ground grill are provided for meals and evening campfires. No pets allowed in the cottages.
