After traveling West of the Mississippi for years, now we are taking some of our grandchildren to Niagra Falls before school resumes. I've read as much as possible, but nothing beats personal experiences. I understand the best place to stay is on the Canadian side of the falls, but where? Our 5er may not fit the smaller campgrounds and RV parks.
Please offer some suggestions for what to do, and in what order, to maximize this experience for the grandchildren. (boy 12, and girl 14)

check out this web site rving in Canada
pick Ontario and then the campgrounds. Have never camped near niagara Falls, but there are a few nice ones. make sure you take the kids on maid of the Mist..super..There is a nice CG to the east of Niagara Falls, near the helicopter flights, can't remember the name..The Canadian side is beautiful, lots of flowers in bloom and very clean.You won't be sorry you stayed on our side..! have a great trip. I checked the site out, most of the CG have a website(lower right of each main page. Yogi Bear has lots of activities and a shuttle to the falls..traffic is very heavy in the town and parking is a giant lot near the falls and costs $. have fun planning..Dona

Thanks Dona and Elvin! I know little about this area. We decided to stay at the Campark resort on Lundy's Lane. We think it will be quieter and more peaceful than Jellystone. It too has a shuttle, which we will utilize to the fullest.

you are very welcome..in AZ last winter we looked at the Grand Junctions-very nice units. We wanted to buy one, but didn't know how to get our atv back home.(had a TT.) Since we just bought the Open Road 5er, now we have to get our atv back to Arizona-found a trucking company here going to LA every monday, they will haul it..have a great time at the falls!

You might want to try Bissell's Hideaway in Ridgeville, Ont. It is about 15 minutes from the falls, the sites were roomy, the park was clean, and they have there own lake with water slides (the grand kids might enjoy). They have a web site, www.bissellshideaway.com check it out.

If you use a credit card to buy stuff, Check your card. Most charge a 3% handling fee. So for big items, you might want to pay cash. Make sure you visit Niagra on the Lake community, just east of the Rainbow bridge on the Canadian side. The flowers were beautiful. Lot of wine shops and eateriers there.

The exchange rate is down to about 6.5% now, so the cost is about the same on both sides of the border. s/Toby

Toby is right, most credit cards do charge a handling fee for foreign transactions. We have found the Capitol One Master Card does not. Important to those who do international travel.
