Brock Isles Trails
At the eastern end of the Thousand Islands and the edge of the Frontenac Arch, lie the 70 islands and 60 shoals that comprise the Brockville Narrows group. As the name implies, the river narrows considerably here to a width of only 1.4 km.
The many small islands offer a scenic and relaxing route for daytrippers, just offshore from historic Brockville. Island day-use and camping facilities on Stovin Island and several Brockville municipal park islands make this route an ideal paddle for those seeking a relaxing day of paddling or a base to begin an extended trip.
Departure:St. Lawrence Park, located along King Street on the western edge of the city, offers boat launching, parking and camping facilities. The park operates seasonally, and a small fee applies for parking. Centrally located boat launching sites (with docks and ramp) at the foot of Home Street and Henry Street, provide easy access to the river with ample free parking, a washroom, changehouse, and public telephone nearby.
