Information given on the phone was incorrect about the campsite. We were charged full for the two nights. We camp every year with our families and was not happy. When we brought the issues to management and owner they were not resolved. Customer service is HORRIBLE. Owner was nastier than the manager. Do not go there.

This is our 5th stay here and we absolutely love it. We were on site 74 for 9 days and had a 5 year old with us. The activities kept her entertained all week and Patricia and Danielle were both great with the kids. Daily ventures to the park and the bouncing pillow were a must. Our site was clean... More

We recently stayed a week at 1000 Islands/Ivy Lea KOA. My wife and I agree that this is one the best campgrounds we have stayed at. Location is great for exploring the 1000 Islands area. We were able to shop, eat, and tour in both Gananoque and Kingston. The pool area is probably the highlight of the resort and a... More

We booked here very last minute because the place we regularly camp was overun with State troopers looking for two escaped convicts. Anyways, we always camp somewhere with a lake. This was our first experience camping with so many amenities. The weather was calling for rain during most of our stay, so we booked here because it had a heated... More

Stayed here this past fathers day weekend. Sites are close to one another all have good size mature trees for shade and privacy. Huge playground for kids that’s very clean and in perfect shape, also has a giant “jumping pillow” which is basically a MASSIVE trampoline, tons of fun even for adults! Nice main building, small pool area but also... More

We stayed three nights and they couldn't do enough for us. The campground is clean, quiet and well maintained. They have lots of amenities and activities for children. We were close to several boat tour companies in the 1000 Islands.

We stayed at KOA last summer and booked a tent spot. It was nice and airy, very clean and well kept. They also have amenities such as laundry and shower.
