This was our first visit to the Thousand Islands. Though the area is focused on the St. Lawrence River and most activities put you on the shore, I recommend that visitors take the opportunity to view the area from the middle of the river. We stopped on this island as a part of a boat tour. There were beautiful and breathtaking natural vistas as well as historical insights. Highly recommended.

This boat trip leaves from Clayton. Glass bottom boat area allowed for viewing...but not quite what we expected. It was a small area in the center of the boat...hard to clearly see anything. Lighthouse stop was awesome. Gift shop and clean bathrooms....can go to top of lighthouse.

You need to take a boat to get here, but it's a nice ride. There is not much of a "park" but it's a beautiful island. Climb to the top of the lighthouse for a breathtaking view of the river! Tour the restored house for a trip back in time.

Visit the light house for fun and history. The island is perfect for picnics and photos. Staff had treasure hunt set up for children. Private boat or your boat stops there. Nice job by NYS Parks!

The nice thing about Rock Island is that it's not over crowded. There's a nice gathering & staff are very knowledgeable. We all love to climb the lighthouse for the view which is outstanding. A yearly favorite stop for us.
