Canada/Niagara Falls

We are planning to return to Niagara Falls this summer.

In your opinion, what are the must do items we should consider while visiting that area?

Appreciate any ideas, recommendations, and thoughts!

Where did you stay at? We stayed at Niagara Falls Campground & Lodging. While decent enough, it was the most expensive stay on our cross-country trip. Staff wasn't friendly at all.

We are headed there this weekend. We are staying on the Canada side at Campark. I called them because we might be there early because of a holiday on Monday and needing to pick up the rental car. They said if need they will find somewhere for us to park if our site is not ready.

Will let you know once we get there how everything goes. This is our first trip ever in a mh. Traveling from St. Louis.

Will be staying at Niagara Falls KOA on the Canadian side. Little pricey, but closest to the falls and looks nice with good reviews on rvparkreviews / RV Life.

While in the area we also went to Fort Niagara. The docents in the park were very interesting and knowledgeable.

We visited the town of Niagara on the Lake and really enjoyed it.

Canada/Niagara falls

Oakland RV Park........We did an 11,000 mile trip in 2018 and Ralph and Tina, the owners of Oaklands were far and away, the most friendly, accommodating park owners we met on our travels, by far. Nice Park, only a short bike ride from the falls.

Well we made it in to Canada, went to the skylon tower for dinner. A little overpriced for the buffet, but definitely nice view.

Border crossing wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. We crossed at the peace bridge. Not much traffic. They made us go through the bus lane. Everyone out check the passport asked standard questions. Like do you know everything in the motorhome? Do you plan to stay in the my every night? What are you here for?

We stayed at Campark. Very nice workers. A couple of people it looks like got kicked out. Didn't care much for how close we were to the train tracks. Not much internet reception at the spot we are in.

We are doing the Groupon for magnificent tours tomorrow. We are only here until Tuesday then will move on to PA.
