Report: For the lsst two years we have spent a week camping with our family in two cabins on this beautiful island in the St. Lawrence River. The cabins are rustic but comfortable and clean and the entire campground is well run, an ideal place for a family vacation if you have a boat to transport your family and all camping gear to the island. Plan to go back this year. All from sons 9 and 10 to grandparents love it.
