Canoe Point State Park is located on the northeast end of Grindstone Island, facing Eel Bay and the Canadian Channel in the St. Lawrence River. Grindstone Island  is the fourth largest of the Thousand Islands in the St. Lawrence River and the second largest of the American islands in the St. Lawrence after Wolfe, Howe, and Wellesley islands. The park can only be accessed via boat as there are no ferries or bridges to the island.

The park has cabins, campsites, a nature trail, a picnic area with tables and pavilions, and washrooms as well as showers and a water fill up station and is perfect for camping, fishing or just a stop over for a picnic. Firewood, ice and some sundries can also be purchased at the main office.  The park and the facilities are impeccably maintained and clean and as can be seen in the photo of the price list posted at the office, shows a stay at Canoe Point is extremely affordable !
