NC to Ohio to Niagara falls

My wife and I will be traveling from NC to Cedar point in July and then up to Niagara Falls, I am looking for places to stay for a night on the way to Cedar Point, Somewhere in West VA or Ohio. Also if anyone can recommend a place on the Canadian side that is nice and close to the falls let me know.
Thanks

I can't help you with the US side but if you want stay close to the Falls, then the Niagara Falls KOA would be a good choice. If you are travelling with kids, you could look at Sherkston Shores near Port Colborne. We've stayed there 5 times and our teenage boys always enjoy it. It's a half hour drive into Niagara Falls.

There are many threads here on the forum about things to do and campgrounds in the area. Just do a search on "Niagara Falls". Personally, I'd stay away from tourist traps like Clifton Hill and opt for Niagara-on-the-Lake, the jet boat ride and the Butterfly Conservatory.

Or you can stay in the U.S. and camp at Branches on Niagara on Grand Island, NY or the G.I. KOA and day trip it into Canada. That way you don't have the hassle of going over one of the bridges to Canada with your rig. Both places are a 10 minute drive to Niagara Falls. Also, there is a very good state park 12 miles north of N.F. called 4 Mile Creek. $28 a night with electric but no s/w hook ups. Your camping pass gets you into N.Falls state park and the worth going to Fort Niagara SP, 4 miles from cg both with no additional charge.

I am partial to state and federal parks. I assume you are traveling via I-77. Looking at state parks in Ohio near I-77 there is Wolf Run State Park ($24/nt) near Belle Valley and Salt Fork State Park ($27/nt) north of Cambridge, OH. Salt Fork is one of Ohio's premier state parks and so it fills fast on holiday periods. You can reserve a site on line at either.

Smile Canada & Ohio Campgrounds

Here are a couple nice areas to camp at:
In Canada: Home | Bissells Hideaway
In Ohio: Camp near Dayton and go to the Air Force Museum at Wright Patterson AFB. Great place to visit with lots to see.

Thanks everyone for your help. We are looking at staying in Marietta Ohio one night, It is about 5 hours from home and about 3-1/2 to Cedar point. We will stay a couple nights at the park. Then head over to Niagara Falls.


How is Ohio and New York or Canada with Fire Wood?

Not sure what you're asking?

To go into Canada you will have to have a US passport. We loved the American side of the Falls the best. The park is beautiful and you can move a short distance and have a different perspective. Even ten feet can make a difference. The Canadian side of course has the best view of Horseshoe Falls and shouldn't be missed, but the rest of Niagra Falls there is very commercial and reminded me of Virginia Beach with all the shops and fun houses. And, it was very crowded. Don't miss Cave of the Winds and the boat ride, as well as down river at the whirlpool. I'm sorry, but we did not camp, so I can't help you there.

Itat, I was asking in a bad way if we can bring our own fire wood?


I should have asked it better.
