Niagara Falls motorhome access

Hey Sunseeker friends, is there parking at Niagara Falls for a 34 foot and a 32 foot motorhome both with tow car? We have never been there and are planning a trip next fall. We want to know about parking for RV's. Will we need to take tow cars off prior to arrival. Your help is appreciated.

Why not get a campsite close to the "Falls" and drive the toads into town. I do not know the parking on the US side but the Canadian side it would be difficult to find parking for a MH with a toad. There is so much to do and see around the falls area it cannot be done in one day.

Niagara Falls motorhome access

When we went last year (CDN side) we stayed at the Niagara KOA and then took the bus into town. There's stops literally right in front of the campground.

There is a lot right across the street from the falls. I parked my dulley in there and there were several RV's. As others have said there, there are some nice campgrounds on the Canadien side. We were at Bissels Hidaway.

Your replies are very helpful, we are from Washington State and have never been in the area. We prefer to stay on the US side so we do not have to spent time waiting to cross the Canadian Border. In Washington State that is always a time consuming process.

Understood why you want to stay on the American side. Trust me though, the view from the Canadian side is easily 100x better imho.

Oh, I get it. I'm in a border community too. But coming from the west you might want to consider the Canadian route anyways. You can cross in either Detroit or Port Huron, and be in Niagara Falls in about 4 hours. Taking the U.S. Route the whole way will take significantly more time than what you'll spend crossing.

Up to you in the end, but I'd at least consider the options.

Agreed!

And we'll probably cross at Port Huron to avoid Detroit since they are extremely busier than Port Huron.


I also wanted to add: The Niagara port isn't as commercially busy as Detroit, so the wait wouldn't be as bad. The larger trucks use a different crossing.

X2. Canadian side is awesome! IMO, best way to see the falls. Plus there are a ton of cool things to do within walking distance of the Falls. You definitely could find things to do in the area for several days. Especially cool to put into the kids memory banks (I know from experience).Agree with previous poster, Michigan entry might be easier also. Have done both, but in a car many years before increased border security. Other posters may have better info on this.
