Out boating on St. Lawrence and stopped into Rock Island Light House and was very pleased. Great bathroom facilities, nice picnic area, wonderful job done by parks on restoration of light and keepers house. Small fee to go up into light.
Docks are excellent but tricky to approach from mainland side due to very strong current. Use channel side slips for much easier approach.

Took two of our grandkids there and what a treat- the staff was so friendly and helpful. The park is so clean and modern. The dock was so easy to dock our boat and the rest rooms were quite a surprise. The view from the top of the lighthouse was priceless. We highly recommend this as a must see attraction in the 1000 islands.

This tiny island was a relaxing stop on our boat tour. We were able to climb to the top of the lighthouse and take fantastic photographs of the Thousand Islands. The grounds were kept beautifully.

Was excited to find out that you can climb up to the top of the light house for a birds eye view. The gift shop was average and the staff was helpful.

The lighthouse is now open and you can climb up for a great view of the river. Small gift shop attached in the old lightkeepers cottage. Cottage upstairs is outfitted to be used for bridal parties getting ready for a wedding. Lots of pictures and history to read. Great place to sit and watch the ships. Need to have your own boat or take a ride from the boats in Clayton
