Niagara Falls to Port Huron through Canada

We are planning a summer road trip. On one leg we are staying at the KOA in Niagara Falls/Grand Island KOA. From there we plan to travel into Canada staying at the Toronto West KOA for a few days, then traveling to the Port Huron KOA through Canada. I have never traveled in Canada with an RV. We will be towing a 35' travel trailer.

Would appreciate any insight traveling into Canada at Niagara Falls and out of Canada at Port Huron. Also info on Toronto West KOA would be appreciated.

We did it last summer with out 30ft 5th wheel from Niagra to port Huron. A bit of a wait to go through the border port going into Michigan . Had no issues though. You just need your passports and you'll be fine

I would recommend go up to Queenston border, easier drive on multi lane roads.

I would bypass the KOA. Lots of very nice provincial parks and conservation areas to stay at.

Crossing at Niagara Falls

Grand River Rockwood. They have electric and water.
Grand River Conservation Authority

Close to 401

Then off to Pinery on Lake Huron

http://www.pinerypark.on.ca/

This park is near Grand Bend, One of Ontario's best beaches

Also the some of the best Sunset's in all of Canada over Lake Huron.

We spend a lot of time at

Welcome to Inverhuron Provincial Park

I spend many summers here as a kid and we spend many weekends here now as well.

Again great sunsets and both a Rock Shoreline and also a great sand beach as well.

There are many places in the US to visit instead of Canada. America is a beautiful place for an RV. Canadians come here on vacation for a reason.

Be prepared for very polite and friendly officials and other people you meet.

We were in Niagara Falls in the fall of 2014 staying at the Branches of Niagara located on Grand Island. To me this was a far better campground than the KOA on Grand Island which is right off of the interstate. Some of the sites I would guess where as close as an 1/8 of a mile to the interstate.

There is also a one way toll on to the island every time you enter from both directions.

Make sure that you have a passport for each person traveling with you. When you enter into Canada and back into the US, this makes entering so much easier. We had our passports with us when we walked across Rainbow Bridge and entered and returned with no issues.

Some of the national Parks in Canada are great such as Point Pelee National park. we stayed there sometime ago but this was excellent at the time. Use RV Park Reviews and click on the Canada link to check out the national parks.
