The Victoria Day weekend kicks off the camping season with all eight of the Parks of the St. Lawrence campgrounds —Glengarry, Long Sault Parkway McLaren, Mille Roches, Woodlands, Farran, Upper Canada Migratory Bird Sanctuary, Riverside-Cedar and Ivy Lea — opening on Friday (May 16), the Morrisburg News reported.

The campgrounds, which are situated along the shores of the St. Lawrence River from Ivy Lea in the 1000 Islands through to Glengarry Park near Lancaster, are showing strong reservations for the holiday weekend.

“Our parks offer some of Ontario’s most spectacular scenery. Each campground has a very distinct personality and unique features,” said Lou Seiler, manager of parks and recreation with the St. Lawrence campgrounds. “We are continuing the renewal of our parks infrastructure and I am confident our customers will enjoy the new amenities we have added.”
