When wife and I got married we pitched out tent in the Grand Island KOA, prehaps 30 minutes from the falls. (You cross a toll bridge to get there) of course not everyone likes a KOA. At the time there was an amusement park next door by the way.

My last trip we popped up our PUP in a membership campground the name of which I no longer remember. They violated several Coast 2 Coast rules. that I do recall, however I made no complaint as I was rather pleased with the site I got. One of the rules is they picked the site, (They are not supposed to do that but considering when I arrived, I kind of liked that too).

It was a nice park too.

There are others, Just google camping niagra falls for a list.

Oh, the week of our honeymoon.. It rained, often, but for some reason only when we were in the tent. I bought a commuter pass for the toll bridge, it was less expensive the number of crossings I made.

Home is where I park it!

I would like to think that you might want to visit the Canadian side when you are in the area, and there are some great campgrounds there. The one most recommended that we have used many times is the KOA, Lundy's Lane, Ontario. Its a short drive down town Niagara Falls Ontario, and very well located for other great tours like Niagara on the Lake, and all the wineries on the Canadian side. Most visitors will tell you the Canadian side is much nicer to visit, so staying there makes sense. You would need a passport or a passport card to get back into the US after.
Children under 16 do not need a passport, only an original birth certificate I believe.

I haven't been to NY state since the 60s. I don't remember any RV parks then, just a few Army camps. But when I was there the Falls were about 400 miles from Downtown NY City. lol

We went to Niagra Falls last August and stayed at 4 Mile Creek State Park on Lake Ontario. Park is about 30 minutes or so north of the Falls and very easy direct route down to Niagra State Park adjacent to the Falls. No camping there but does provide quick and easy access via bike path - which we used - to go to the falls. Easier than making the drive to paid parking at the falls. State park was very nice on the lake. No swimming at the park but there are waterfront sites. We stayed at north end on other side of the road from the lake. Not sure you could get reservation now for lake front but worth a try. Very quiet park with large sites some open and many in the shade. Recommend the north end of the park.

If you want to see the falls from NY City then you have to stand tippy toes on top of the Empire State Building and hope that there's not a thick smog layer. The best view of the falls is from the Canadian Side because from the American Side all you see is the side of the falls.

I just park my rig in my aunt's yard on Lawrence Ave. whenever we go to the falls so I don't know where the campgrounds are located. Whatever side you plan on visiting please take in the other side as there are really great things to do both sides.

We stayed at the Grand Island KOA. Won't stay there again.

It was just under $100 a night when we were there a few years ago. They put me in a mud puddle between a long term resident and another run down RV.

Niagara Heartland RV Park, Gasport, NY.
Passport America - under $20 a night.(Must be a Passport America member) Electric deposit. Nothing much to speak of except peace and quiet. About 30 miles scenic drive to Niagara. We have stayed there 3-4 times when we go through that area. Lockport is close by with the Erie Locks. Small Lake(pond) with swimming beach on-property.

we also stayed at 4 mile creek. great park ,big and clean. you will also save on parking fees(10.00 ) each day at the falls, with your state park registration sticker. our grandkids loved being able to walk down to the beach on lake ontario, and taking a dip in the water. its only a easy no traffic 15 minute drive to the falls.

We stayed at the Campark Resort in NIagara Falls on the Canada side. Great RV Park and is close enough to get where you want to go.

The Canadian side is much nicer than the US side...

I'll 4-X on 4 Mile Creek State Park. The other poster (Chigginsct) said 4 mile was like 30 minutes away. I kind of remember it being only 15 minutes away...Many of the sites at 4 mile Creek were very large grassy sites. I would book early for a July date.
