This is the oldest of all of the Parks of the St. Lawrence. Before the St. Lawrence Seaway came into existence, Brown's Bay was the only provincial park between Gananoque and the Quebec border. It continues to be a popular stopping point for travellers to enjoy some outdoor recreation en route between Toronto and Montreal.

Just 20 kilometres east of Ivy Lea Campground on the Thousand Island Parkway is Brown's Bay Beach which offers swimming, picnic, playground and boat launch facilities, and an impressive view of Dark Island's Singer Castle from its beach.
