Gather Round the Campfire

At Stone & South, we love camping in the Thousand Islands.

These days, you don’t even need to own a tent to go camping. Nature is accessible, nearby, and even friendly! National parks provide Learn to Camp sessions, pre-equipped camping options, and even new Pokemon GO! creatures for the kids — or grown-ups — to catch. At Stone & South, we love camping in the Thousand Islands.Whether you want to just go for a hike or want to spend a week wrapped in nature, you’ll find a place to breathe the fresh air and satisfy your inner adventurer somewhere among the islands.

The Thousand Islands National Park is only a hop and a skip up the river — so close that you could almost see it from your penthouse suite at Stone & South. The park is one of the Thousand Islands — or rather, twenty different islands and two mainland properties stewarded by the National Parks authority. They offer a water-taxi for visitors without a boat of their own, or you can sail, cruise, or paddle your way up the St. Lawrence and visit the park by water. For those without a tent or camping gear, they also offer waterfront oTENTik cabins for visitors to stay in.
If you have your own tent — or trailer, RV, or houseboat — there are plenty more places to stay. There are dozens of campgrounds on the mainland, on the islands, and across the border for you to choose from. Each one has its own unique amenities and a beautiful place in the Thousand Islands.
Dark Sky camping areas.
There are even options for stargazers. Lennox and Addington’s Dark Sky Viewing Area is only a short drive north of Gananoque — the most southerly dark sky area in Ontario — and you’ll find yourself breathless when you look up at the glimmering night sky.
Maybe you love the outdoors but don’t like sleeping there? Try visiting the MacLachlan Woodworking Museum at 6pm on Thursdays. Every week in the summer, they have a campfire sing-along with local musicians — and admission to the museum is free all evening. It’s a great compromise for those who love the idea of camping but not camping itself.

We love how close Stone & South is to nature — that’s why the Thousand Islands is the place we call home. Check out our Facebook to see what else we’re doing this summer!
