We camped next to a couple from NY over the past summer and mentioned that we were planning a trip to the falls. They highly recommended Darien Lakes State Park. This is second hand info., but they were great to camp beside and I felt good with there recommendation.

Understand, Canada does not have a 2nd amendment and guns [other than long guns] are not allowed. Even long guns require permits to bring across the bordor and they are expensive to acquire. That is one of the reasons I will probably never cross that border. I respect their right to make their own laws but I choose not to spend my $$'s are exposed to restrictions on things like dog food and much of the food I might choose to stock for my trip.

Thanks for the info. I remember back in 2009 I went a on a hunt in Manitoba and it was a pain for taking 2 shotguns up. But I didnít know if they may have changed their law. I should have probably researched it myself but always good to hear everyoneís stories!

You can also check out Canalside in Buffalo, 30 minutes from the Falls. Museums, museum ships, boat tours, concerts, interesting restaurants, zip lines between old grain elevators--you can easily spend a day or two there.

The ride between Niagara Falls and Buffalo on the Canadian side takes longer but is a really nice ride with good views of the river.

We were at the falls in September this year. The Canadian side is a definite. We stayed at Campark Resorts camp ground. It was just myself and my wife so we didn't take advantage of the Kid Activities. Lots to do for kids at the camp site. There's a public bus right outside of the campground that takes you directly to the falls - it's about a 35 minute bus ride. There is a lot do do in the town itself; mostly kids activities. We only found enough to do for 2 days but with kids, you could spend an extra day or 2. If you want to stay the week, Toronto has all kinds of activities - about 1 1/2 hours from the falls.

We were at 4 Mile last summer and found it great for our 7 year old grandson. Swings and stuff, lots of bikes running around.

Activities - There is an Aroboretum which may sound odd for kids but it has a nice special area for kids.
Small town nearby has a restaurant in an old grain silo by the river. Foods ok but the view and surroundings are great for kids.
The park around Niagara is free parking if you stay at 4 Mile and has lots of paved trails to different views. Walking around tired us all out.
fires are permitted at 4 Mile so bring wood. The store is tiny and not to be relied on. The nearest town is big enough for several restaurants and a nice market for your foods, etc.

Have fun!

We just stayed at the KOA Grand Island and thought it was very comfortable. It is right next door to an amusement park but that was no problem. Itís a bit pricey but you have to consider the area. Very close to the falls and border area. We loved the Canadian side of the falls. Better view in my opinion.

There is a restaurant/dinner show on the Canadian side called "Oh Canada Eh?". It is a dinner show that the wait staff is also the actors and quite frankly-it is hilarious! The food is good and served "family style"so you will meet other folks at your table and I guarantee you AND your kids will love it! Also, there is a campground in Pelham Ontario called Bissell's Hideaway Resort that is a great place for kids-huge pool, water slide, zip line and more, is not very far from the Falls either.
