Long Sault Parkway & Campsites

Halfway between Kingston and Montreal a series of eleven islands sweep in an arc through the St. Lawrence River like a necklace of green jewels. A series of causeways and bridges connect these former hilltops of the Lost Villages. These villages were flooded to make way for the St. Lawrence Seaway and Power Project of 1958. signs of the ghostly communities still remain on the islands as the former Highway #2 is seen to appear out of the shoreline on the far shore. Just off the same island Lock 21, one of the 23 locks of the original canal system, sits under 30 feet of water, a scuba diver's dream! The Long Sault Parkway is home to three unique campgrounds with over 600 campsites (Mille Roches, Woodlands, McLaren, Lock 21, Hoople Islands) where you can get away from it all in the heart of the river. It also boasts the largest public beach on the St. Lawrence River corridor (Mille Roches), winding bike paths, pristine nature trails, boat launches, picnic parks, scuba diving and remarkable fishing. In fact, Hoople Creek Basin is one of the largest natural Pickerel fish hatcheries and fishing areas in Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec. Cyclists can enjoy the scenery and bike along this scenic and unique Parkway free of charge! All campers to Parks of the St. Lawrence Campgrounds receive two (2) free admission passes upon check-in at the campground. These passes can be used to visit award-winning Upper Canada Village or Fort Henry National Historic Site of Canada during the may operating season (mid-May to Labour Day).
