The Thousand Islands Of Lake Ontario

One of the things you can't overlook while visiting Lake Ontario are the Thousand Islands. There are 1,864 islands to be exact varying in size and many of them can be found within the lake itself and yes, it is the place where the Thousand Island dressing originated.

Each one of these islands has got something unique to offer and is therefore worthy of a visit. Some are home to only wildlife while others offer just enough space for one abode. What they all have in common though is that they are larger then one square foot, are above the water level the entire year, and have at least one growing tree.

The largest is Wolfe Island which is located in Canada and accessible by ferries which travel from both the U.S. and Canada to the island. It is advised not to travel the waters between the islands with your own boat; the rocks and shoals above and below the surface present a hazardous situation except for when you stay in the main channels.

Several of the islands form St. Lawrence Islands National Park. Others are home to several New York state parks such as Wellesley Island. The Wellesley Island State Park offers camping sites galore and a large choice in boat ramps and docking facilities.

As far as activities and accommodations go there are plenty and catering to every taste and preference. If you don't want to go far from home, but still insist on taking in some of nature's wonders then this would be an excellent destination.

A picture is worth a thousand words, but The Thousand Islands are worth one amazing picture!
