From all my day trips, perhaps, the most beautiful area of the United Counties is the Long Sault Parkway.
The Long Sault Parkway connects 11 islands and is a popular route for cyclists and Sunday drivers, the Long Sault Parkway also has hundreds of campsites, beaches, picnic areas and bird sanctuary.
The Long Sault Parkway is a series of 11 islands that were created from high points of land left after the flooding of the St. Lawrence River during the construction of the Seaway in the 1950’s. I love this place. It’s beautiful and quiet. You can come for a day or for a weekend.
We brought our bikes and some food and spend the whole afternoon there, we even had a nap under a tree by the water!
There are 3 Long Sault Parkway Campgrounds:
There are 2 Long Sault Parkway Beaches and Picnic Areas:
The entrance fee for beach and campgrounds: 7CAD on week days or 17CAD on weekends per car. Cyclists get free access.
TIP: You can park for free at the entrance (there is a small parking lot) and bike from there.
