Per a reviewer: “We have been coming here for a decade and the large, open sites with great views of the St. Lawrence seaway. There are some full-service sites but most are two-service grassy lots with ample space to enjoy the surroundings. It is a place to enjoy nature without WiFi. Nice well maintained bike path nearby, nature trails and superb, friendly staff. We camped at Upper Canada Migratory Bird Sanctuary & Nature Campsite in a travel trailer.
