No, but logged on to see if anyone had any recomendations for the Niagra Falls area. Vickie and I are planning a trip up at the end of Aug. We will probably see the falls and then go over itno Can. for a couple days then back to the finger lakes area. Can anyone offer any good CG's? Thanks, Nat

We were in that area in July. I heard, but didn't check it out, that the CGs close to the falls had very small sites and were expensive. We stayed about 30 miles away on Lake Ontario at Golden Hill SP. It was clean, decent size sites, inexpensive and our site was about 100 feet from the lake. We will stay there again when in that area.

Last month, we stayed at Niagara Heartland RV Resort, in Gasport, NY. About 20 miles from Niagara, NY. It is a Passport America CG, so the stay will approximatley $15 a night, I forgot the exact amount. Plus a $5 a day deposit on electricity. That is the first I ever had to do that, but we got back $4 upon departure, but it is hotter this time of year.

Here is a link to the Niagara Heartland RV Resort

We found it easy to navigate to Niagara, Lockport (Eire Canal Locks - take the tour) and up to the coast of Lake Ontario (Olcott, NY) There is a very nice public park in Olcott. It was very relaxing to get back to a quiet campground.

Here is a picture of the entrance AND exit to the resort.

Last month, we stayed at the KOA in Grand Island, NY...it was okay...but way to expensive. Check the website RV Park Reviews....I have heard the KOA on the Canadian side is a nicer park.

oceancamper - I've been to Niagara Lazy Lakes, early in the season last spring. The transient sites are at the front of the resort, well spaced out with lots of green space between you and the next sites but not much shade except around the perimeter of the area. Water and electric only - easy access dump station. We spent 3 days there on RPI and would recommend it.

We'll be at Niagra Lazy Lakes under our ROD membership later this month. Never been there before. I'll give you a report once we get there.

We arrived at Niagra Lazy Lakes today and so far I'm quite pleased with the place. Very picturesque area. We are in what I would call the "front section" of the park. We have a 41' class A, and this section has plenty of room for us. Lots of space (grass) between us and the next neighbor. The power is 30 amp throughout the park and so far it's been steady. We have a surge guard which cuts us off if the power fluctuates too much and so far so good. Water pressure is fine. No sewer at any of the sites, but there are at least 3 dump stations that I've seen so far and they are easily accessible. Folks at the check in booth were friendly. Think of this park as a long rectangle made up of 3 squares. The first square is the front section, second square is the fishing pond and swimming pond, third square is what I'd call the "back section". The back section has a lot more trees than the front section, but still looks to be easily navigable. The potential problem I see with the back section is that to reach it, you have to pass through a somewhat narrow lane lined with trees that are in serious need of a trimming. For bigger rigs like ours, we definitely would have been brushing branches especially on the roof and quite possibly would come away with a few new scratches. We are 12 1/2 feet tall. Lower rigs might not have the same problem. It's hard to judge the exact heights when just looking up from the ground. But I watched a 5th wheel come through and he did brush a few branches. Also, the sites in the back section seem a little smaller, but still most seem adequately sized. There is only a small area right next to the pond - which seems to be filled with long term rentals anyway - where the sites look a bit tight.

My recommendation would be to follow the directions listed on the ROD website, not the ones listed on the AOR website to get here.

Oh yeah, and antennae TV reception is good. They have free WiFi at the park but it was really slow. We're using our aircard and it's much better. Cell signal is good. We have AT&T.

Thanks Cheetah Girl, we are at Lazy Lakes now. We love it, sites are large and clean, close to the Falls. Having a great time visiting Niagara Falls. Went into Canada yesterday , no problem, went without the rig.
