Keewaydin Professional Review and Guide
"Keewaydin State Park packs a lot of activities into a relatively small footprint that’s a quick detour from I-81. Many of the spots in the main group occupy a wide grassy lawn without much shade. Besides the pool, a playground makes this a great choice for families with kids. Sites 9–10, and 42–45 are closest to the shower house and the swimming pool, while numbers 1–4 are next to the entrance and will get more noise from visitors coming and going. Prime sites with views of the river include numbers 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, 35, 75, and 76. On rainy days, boat lovers might consider a short trip down the road to Clayton’s Antique Boat Museum, a ten-building campus that tells the nautical and cultural history of the mighty St. Lawrence River. Less than a mile from Keewaydin in Alexandria Bay, Boldt Castle on Heart Island, a six-story, 120-room mansion built by millionaire George C. Boldt is open to visitors from mid-May until the end of September."
