Places to stay in Thousand Islands

Hi,

Our family if six (four teenagers) is planning a trip to the Thousand Islands in late June. We are looking for a place to stay. I saw River Bay Adventure Inn, which looked nice, but there are no reviews for it. We are looking for something inexpensive, a good view, and some charm. Can you also recommend places to hike, rent bikes, and rent a boat?

Thanks for all help.

Take a look at the Gananoque Forum, for a list of hotels with reviews:

tripadvisor.com/ShowForum-g182143-i1641-Gana…

Gananoque is actually in the heart of the 1000 Islands. Kingston is a good 30 minutes or more drive west of the islands.

Not sure about places with charm as I stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Gananoque. For places to hike check out Explore the Arch (explorethearch.ca/hike-the-arch/hiking-trails). Jones Creek and Landon Bay are off the 1000 Islands Parkway, but there are a lot more options. Marble Rock, Charleston Lake, and Rock Dunder are good ones.

The same website gives paddle routes in the area including places to rent canoes and kayaks in the area (explorethearch.ca/paddle-the-arch/outfitters). They don't list Charleston Lake Provincial Park but I'm pretty sure they rent canoes and kayaks too.

And actually, that same website lists bike rental places in the area (explorethearch.ca/cycle-the-arch/bike-shops).

Thanks for the advice so far. We wanted to stay on the American side. Are Gananoque and Kingston on the Canadian side?

We'll look over all the information you gave about hiking and boats.

Yes - Gananoque & Kingston are in Canada.

Alexandria Bay in NY state is the closest 1000 Island community. If you look at Google maps you will see where these communities are located.

Go to the NY state forum for information on the American side.
