Wellesley Island State Park has the largest camping complex in the Thousand Islands region. Within this rustic paradise, fishing is excellent--particularly for smallmouth bass, pike, and muskie. To accommodate boaters, the park has a full service marina and three boat launches. A sandy beach on the river offers great swimming and sunbathing and there is a Camp Store, Laundromat, Arcade and the 9-hole Wellesley Island State Park Golf Course on the Island.

One of the main attractions of the park is the Minna Anthony Common Nature Center, which includes a museum, varied habitats such as wooded wetlands, 3 miles of shoreline and open granite outcrops, and miles of trails for hiking, cross-country skiing and nature education. The Nature Center provides educational and recreational programs for all ages. One special feature at the nature center is the 1/4 mile accessible trail that includes access to picnic tables and the seasonal butterfly house. In July and August, a 16 passenger Voyageur Canoe program leaves the docks of the nature center, touring Eel Bay.

For the less rugged camper, there are regular tent/trailer sites and a cabin colony, including facilities for group camping and twelve vacation rentals, which will enable you to enjoy the sunset from the porch of a fully outfitted cottage. You can choose a two or three bedroom cottage with all the comforts of home, including a bathroom with shower, kitchen with refrigerator and stove, bedding, cooking utensils, dishes, glassware, silverware, etc. Outside each vacation rental, a picnic table and ground grill are provided for meals and evening campfires.
