There is no better way to experience the beauty of the St. Lawrence River than from the bow of a boat. The spray in your face, the wind in your hair, its a feeling like no other. The magnificence of the sparkling water, set off by the picturesque islands, offers a potent reminder of why the 1000 Islands has long been the choice of vacationers from around the world. Take off and try tubing, head out on water skies. Explore the islands, and stop for a quick swim or picnic. Be sure to bring your own boat. Clayton makes it easy to get your boat into the water. The village provides a public launch and docking at many points along the river including a 200-foot floating dock complex in front of the village. Three-hour limit (free, donations appreciated). Dockage, 4' draft; restrooms on site, laundromat across the street, dining, shopping, and lodging nearby.
