while Niagara Falls is on my list of places to go I have been told that the KOA on the Canadian side is real nice.

We have looked at most of the campgrounds there and we still go back to the KOA Lundy's Lane on the Cdn side.
Lots of great facilities.

I own a campground about 1 hour from Niagara Falls. I hear a lot about the campgrounds around that area from my customers. I have not stayed there but the nicest one that is close is the KOA on Grand Island New York. It is only a few minutes away. I'm pretty sure Jetsmania stayed there.

On the Canadian side, There is a KOA on Lundy's Lane but, in my opinion the Jellystone Park is better. As a caveat, I happen to own a Jellystone Park but, I am being as objective as possible.

The KOA on Lundy's Lane is very tight and I'm not sure I would call it camping. But, if you are there just to see Niagara Falls it may suit your needs.

Do not stay at the KOA in Niagara Falls New York. I hear some pretty bad things.

In Summary, US side choose KOA Grand Island, Canadian, choose the Jellystone Park.

We stayed here last year Niagara Falls KOA
2570 Grand Island Blvd.
Grand Island, NY 14072

The site's they gave me and my buddy were so tight,my neighbors sewer connection was under my picnic table.All this for $88.00/night. Our view was the highway,trucks drove by all night.The sites towards the entrance looked small but a lot nicer. We had a great time because we went for the falls,this campground was only to crash at night.If I was here more then two night,I would have left.I hear a lot of good things about the Can. side.

I will defer to Frankie as he has stayed at Grand Island KOA and I have not. Actually, having met him, he has stayed at about 1,000 campgrounds I think. He knows his stuff and is what I would call an expert camper.

All I can relay is that feedback for the Niagara Falls USA KOA or Niagara Falls Canada KOA has not been positive from my customers.

I try to be opened minded at all the places I stay.When I made my rez for this place,I asked about the site size because I have opposing slideouts.I was told no problem sir,plenty big enough.The rest of the campground was okay. To bad your place wasnt closer to the falls.We really enjoyed our couple of days there.

Thanks for all the input on the campgrounds. Now, what do we do once we get there? I have researched all the norms around the falls. What else is there to do in the area? We are an early 30's couple with two younger children, 8 & 11. Any suggestions? We are pretty open to just about anything.

Niagara Falls itself is barely a one day excursion. There is Journey behind the falls or something to that effect and the maid of the mist.

Everyone I've talked to agrees that the Canadian side is superior to the American side as the view is incredible and the Park and walk along the river are great. I agree too.

Then on the main drag you will find every tourist trap you've ever heard of, such as a Hard Rock Cafe, Ripley's, etc. It will be entertaining for the kids.

Other things for kids:

Great Wolf Lodge water park just north of the falls.

There is Darien Lake Amusement Park which used to be a Six Flags located about 40 minutes from the Falls.

Letchworth State Park is awesome and about 1 1/2 hours away.

We stayed at Fourmile Creek State Park and really enjoyed it. Large camp sites, lots on the lake, well maintained.
