Reviews for Swan Bay Resort & Marina

| Give me BREAK!

Yes, this CG has paved roads and concrete pads. We all desire those features. However, after being charged approximately $75/ night, there was a tacked on up charge of $5/day for 30amp, $10/day for 50amp and if you booked in for 7 days, you're on a meter. Spare me!!! Laundry was $3 to wash and $3 to dry. Have to say, facilities were clean. Sites with river views were more $$$ plus the up charge for electricity. I thought this operation was thievery and they should build their nightly charges into a set price and not add on. I could afford it, but I resented the way they did it. I WOULD not stay stay this CG again. It's the principle and we've been RVing for years all over the country.

We liked Swan Bay. Level concrete pads and patios are a big plus. Picnic tables are in excellent condition. All paved roads and good, convenient hookups are also very nice. This is also the first campground we have visited that had sidewalks. The campground is only a couple of years old, so much of the landscaping and trees are not mature. That's great for visibility as you can see the seaway from much of the resort, not just the waterfront sites. The down side is that there is not a lot of shade, if that's important to you. As noted in other reviews, they upcharge for electric. I don't know how they can advertise a rate for full hookups then add on a daily charge for electricity. Who do they think they are, Verizon! I digress. Their rates are high, but they don't have much competition in the area. There are other campgrounds, but none with this level of amenities. There is no cable TV, but we were able to receive several local channels and two of the four major networks. Trash disposal is not too convenient as you must take it to the one area in the campground where they have dumpsters. That's a pretty good hike from the waterfront sites. Fire rings are stacked rocks. They sell firewood on site but it is not covered so what we bought did not burn well because it was wet. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Uncle Sam Boat Tours will pick you up and drop you off at the campground if you want to take one of their tours or use their shuttle to Boldt Castle. You can occasionally hear some highway noise from trucks going over the Thousand Islands Bridges, but it is not bad. Ships passing are almost silent as they are running at very low speed and their large diesel engines are almost at idle. There is a large grocery store right beside the campground that you can walk to if you need to replenish your supplies. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again. We stayed in a waterfront site in a 25' motorhome.

| Great place to stay

We were there for a week and enjoyed the paved roads and concrete pads. Since we were PA members, we got the "cheap seats" of the park, but we were very pleased. The tiki bar was a nice touch as well as the grocery store/liquor store you could walk to. PA rate was $180 +electric for the week which was about half the regular price. Very convenient store/office to supply every need. Enjoyed watching the huge freighter ships cruising the St. Lawrence river.

| Very expensive.

Stayed here 2 nites. Agree with the previous, thorough reviews. Waterfront sites are $91. The PA sites are $35 but you cannot see the river from these sites. Overall, just way too expensive.

| Clean park

Overall very clean and nice. They have two pools one with bar food place attached. The view of the river is limited. They only allow motor homes to park in the river front spots which I don t like that idea being we have a 5th wheel! Price per night is high for not being able to be on the water.
