Most people drive into the Alexandria area.
We usually took I-81 north to the Alexandria Bay exit (exit 50N) then head west on route 12, to Alexandria Bay and connect to Church Street (route 26) heading south to where my cousin lived.
Alternatively you can take I-81 to exit 49 and pickup route 411 east to connect to route 26 going north (it starts as route 37/26 then branches off).
Once in the area, you can use routes 12,26,37 and 180 to get to most of the interesting spots.
During the winter only I-81 is properly maintained. The other routes may be passable but they are definitely to be driven at reduced speeds due to ice and blowing snow.

There are not a lot of other modes of land transportation available.
Alexandria Bay has a taxi service (East Coast Taxi 315-601-3924).
There is a tour bus service out of Brockville which is 20plus miles east (S&W Tours 315-375-6333)

Another mode of transportation is by boat up/down the St. Lawrence River and into the marinas in Clayton (French Creek Marina 315-686-3621) or Alexandria Bay (Rogers Marina 315-482-9461).

Plane and train modes are not existent in the area. You would have to fly into the Watertown area and then rent a car to get to Alexandria.
