Niagara Falls, Canada

Hi folks.

DW and I along with our 2 kids are planning an 8 day trip to Niagara Falls, Canada late July, 2014. I like to do my homework when on the road and thought I would ask this question.

Does anyone know of any type of restrictions (other than passports) whether LP/Propane or otherwise while traveling into Canada?

As we all know, several tunnels and roadways have LP restrictions such as the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel, and wanted to make certain I don't find out too late. Call me anal, but I like being thorough.

Any insight will be appreciated.

Just spent a long weekend in Canada with a facebook group. Drove from South East Pa. Not a bit of trouble getting into Canada or back into US. They say no meats or fresh veggies. Canada has a seperate RV lane if you cross at the Rainbow bridge at Niagra Falls. Need to pull in and shut engine off. We went back into US at the Buffalo NY crossing, again lane marked for RV's.but no toll in this direction. We stayed at Bissells Hidaway. Nice park, plenty for kids. Pool, horse back riding, zip line etc. Have fun !

I do know if you travel with a firearm you had better leave it someplace in the U.S. They do not honor a concealed carry license from any state in the U.S.

We went in stating we had no tabacco, no liquor, no narcotics and no firearms. = No problems.

Correct, no guns into Canada for the most part. They pretty much restrict them with their own citizens as well. Not sure if your into a more "natural" expierence while at the Falls. The Canadian side gives you a view of the American Falls, but is extremely crowded. The US side is much more natural, and you can walk a bit along the Niagara River up from the brink.If you want a park like setting, go to

Great!

Thank you all for the great advice. Wouldn't want to upset the Mounties.

Thanks for the advice. Can I ask a dumb question?

Why do they make you shut your engine? Is there some type of inspection?
Not to circumvent anything, just curious.

Not sure. Had to pull into RV lane. Sign says shut off engine. We sat there for a couple minuets before the agent came out. He asked the usual questions : where you going etc. Then said he had to scan our passports into the system. He took them into the building and returned in 5 min. & we were on our way.

Like I said , we were there two weeks ago. Crouds were not bad. No more than 5 - 10 Min. (tops) waiting for any line. Boats, large ferris wheel, ride to top of tower, helicopter ride etc.

They ask you to shut the engine off so they don't have to breath the fumes from your TV.
