Report: I've been camping at Grass Point State Park for about 30 years. It's a family tradition. It's definately a tradition I'm passing on to my kids. I can't think of a place I"d rather be. Grass Point is beyond compare.

Report: This was our 3rd year at this park. Site 15 is about 20 feet from the river with an impressive view of the 1000 Islands Bridge. We cannot find a park we like better in the area. The kids love fishing and swimming in the park. Many returning campers at this park, which speaks for itself.
