Kring Point Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Standing at one of the waterside sites at Kring Point State Park, it’s easy to see why this part of New York is called the Thousand Islands region. From this narrow peninsula between the St. Lawrence River and Goose Bay, dozens of landmasses of all shapes and sizes can be identified with the naked eye. In other words, this is a campground for water lovers: canoeists and kayakers, anglers and swimmers, sailors and water skiers. Almost every site has a view and at least partial shade. Sites 9–15, as well as 29, 59, 60, 62, and 82 are tent only walk-in sites while numbers 75 and 108 are handicapped accessible. Three comfort stations, two of which have showers, serve the park. Eight two- and three-bedroom cabins with appliances and views of Goose Bay are also available at a higher daily rate. Just before the entrance to the campground, an arched bridge connects the peninsula to Morgan Island and its flat 0.6-mile hiking path. Farther to the south, the similarly short Watson and Root trails lead hikers into the Pulpit Rock State Forest, a granite plateau cloaked with red oak, white pine, ironwood, and hemlock trees."
