We stayed a couple of days at the KOA North/Lewiston. Out of the way and lots of shade. Only one day for seeing the Falls so got tickets from campground owner for guided tour. Never would have seen as much if we drove ourselves.
We spent 5 days at the Narrows Two campground at Trenton, MA. Lots of space but no shade and totally poor Wi-Fi. Took the local shuttle into and around Bar Harbor. Sounds like you will miss the prime lobster season.

We stayed at the KOA on Grand Island last August and enjoyed it. They have sites with all the amenities you mentioned and they are only 10 to 15 minutes to the falls. We enjoyed the falls but the highlight of the trip was the jet boat ride up the rapids of the Niagara River. Check it out is was money well spent. What a rush!!

4 Mile Creek ( NY state campground ) is very nice. Only 15-20 minutes from the falls. Only downside is that there is no sewage hookup,, great views--very clean

US 1 to the border. Terrible road but becomes excellent from the crossing near St. Andrew. Just show passports and say your permanent residence. Very easy. Canada 1 through St. John and on to Moncton. Check out Hopewell Cape of you have time. Then Canada 2 and Canada 104 through Truro crossing the causeway at Port Hawkesbury to Cape Breton Island. Coming back, take a right near Amherst on Canada 16 to the Confederation Bridge to Prince Edward Island. Watch your maps or GPS carefully if going to Cavendish. It's easy to get on country roads.

We stayed at Narrows Too and was very nice.
Make sure you visit both parks. The views from the 2nd park are very nice. Well worth the drive.

We liked Four Mile Creek campground and we would like to go back. We have passports now so we can take day trips across the border

IMHO, late October is near the end of the RVing season in ME.

Four Mile Creek is a very nice clean state park. Some sites in the 200 loop will give you a view of Toronto, Canada. Sites are stone with water only. Modern clean restroom/shower facilities. Bonus of staying at 4 mile is your camping pass will get you into Niagara Falls State Park and Fort Niagara State Park which is only about 3 miles from the campground. Also the great village of Lewiston is 8 miles away that has a very good supermarket along with numerous dining options and a great brew pub.

Regarding Bar Harbor, Narrows is a nice campground though their original campground about 3 outside of Bar Harbor is old and out dated. However, being a corporate park expect to pay national chain pricing. This forum has many compliments on Bar Harbor Family CG which is even closer to the neat town of BH than Narrows sister park with over 300 sites reasonably priced. Downside here is they don't take reservations but I've never come across anyone that hasn't gotten a site when they tried.
