Hi, looking for some information on camping on either the US or CN side of Niagara Falls. We are applying for our US Passports, which I think is just plain silly, but give it up to good ole US government.

I searched some information on this site, but most was from at least 5 years ago.

Any information would be great! Thanks in advance!

I don't know about camping, but you are going to want to view the falls from the Canadian side. It is a much better view.

Stayed at Branches in NY and was 10-15 minutes from major attractions. We drove into CA as well as walked. Adults need passports, kids need birth certificate. Funny thing was CA was so easy to get into but returning to NY were grilled like criminals and asked all the kids their birthdays. Campground was great and would stay again.

X2 what Fishinghat said. Adding - you want to check the US side as well for a different perspective. Camping is a toss up, except you are a little more likely to find a spot that is on public transportation. You do not want to try to park near the falls.

Not to mention many more activities, restaurants, shops, and just generally more developed than the US side.

Stay on the Canadian side. We went there for a week in 2007 and we all had a blast. The Canadian side is where it's at! There is so much to see & do!

As an aside, and it's hard to put a finger on it, but it just seemed like the Canadians were more appreciative of our business then we usually observe here in the States. They seemed to be extra helpful whenever they could in giving us suggestions on sights to see, things to do, places to eat, etc. In short, they were very welcoming.

We stayed at the JellyStone Niagara as we had our four young kids with us. They offered plenty of activities for our resting days.

We hope to go back within the next couple of years.

Have a great trip!

I think everyone needs passports, we are actually going with the Passport ID cards, a little cheaper since there is 5 of us...

We went 7 years ago and stayed at Sherkston shores camping resort. It is on the canadian side, a very easy 30 minute drive from the falls and it is on lake erie. It is very nice, clean has lots of activities, and a big beach. I highly recommend it. We visited both CDN and US sides and we liked the CDN side much more.

I would take a pair (or more than one pair for a family) of binoculars with you. Look at what falls over the falls. Amusing and amazing really.
