Beach and scuba diving area at Ivy Lea Campground at sunriseIvy Lea Campground

649 Thousand Islands Pkwy, Lansdowne

We use Ivy Lea Campground for our Deep Diver course, since it offers depths of 40 metres and beyond within reach of shore. It’s a bit of a drive (halfway between Kingston and Brockville) but it’s well worth it for the diving conditions: clear and temperate all summer. It’s possible get there and back in the same day, but you may want to think about staying the night. You can camp in the campground (cabins available) or stay at a hotel in nearby Gananoque.
