Thousand Islands National Park Facilities

Thousand Islands National Park: Generator use will not be permitted in Zone II (wilderness) classified areas (2015). They will be permitted at Zone III (natural environment) classified locations at these islands: Beau Rivage, Central Grenadier, Hill, and McDonald, as well as Mallorytown Landing (on shore). This represents 36% of park dock space.

All islands with docks have outhouses, water pumps, picnic tables, and shelters. This is changing as the park is moving to restore the ecology of the area by gradually removing docks, camp sites, shelters, and garbage cans. There is camping for groups at central grenadier, but many islands have only 1 tent site with no guarranty of being able to unload at a nearby dock. Islands without camp sites do not allow camping at all. Where areas have become eroded or rare plants have been discovered, docks, campsites, and stoves have been removed and shelters abandoned to the weather. Garbage facilities were removed from many islands in 2002, and visitors must dispose of their garbage elsewhere.

Islands with no Facilities

Thousand Islands National Park also owns several properties that are not marked on regular park brochures. These island properties have no docks in order to protect the fragile nature of these properties. However, they do belong to the people of Canada so you are entitled to visit. Please tread lightly and leave no litter, have no fires and do not camp there.
