“Good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

We were two families who booked seperately and the staff was helpful getting us adjacent sites to camp. The bathroom and the servive were exceptional but we could definitely do with more space/better physical demarcation between tent sites

Nice campground- we stayed in one of the big sites with a patio, deck furniture and a gas grill. Our site was really nice. It's close to Niagara Falls and we did day trips to the surrounding area. The staff could be a bit more friendly. The people running the store acted like you were bothering them or weren't there. The pool was nice- a little small and the playground needs updating. It was a little old and junky. They did have a bounce pad the kids loved and that was nice.

I'm a tent camper but I like a little privacy in between sites and while the service and bathrooms here were exceptional, the sites themselves were a little disappointing. They are grassy and open and most with no definition in between sites.

However, if you are camping with kids there is always plenty to do at this KOA. Lots of activities, 2 pools (one with water slides), large camp store and gift shop, great staff that were always visible and its right next door to an amusement park with an on site train that takes you over. I'm also used to having restrooms closer or more there of but these at least were spotless and large.

We were surprised how there were hot dog cook offs, pancake breakfasts, craft activities and the fact that there was more than one pool. If you forget anything or even want to pick up a cute memento the camp store has everything. The deluxe tent sites have more bushes but also a concrete platform and kiosk but they were smaller sites. We had a corner end site that was large, sloped and grassy. We had 3 sleeping tents plus one screen tent and we wouldnt have fit on the deluxe sites.

The RV sites are like a parking lot, one after another with gravel and concrete platforms in between.

Room Tip: If you only have one sleeping tent opt for the deluxe site to get the extra definition between sites...

We camped in a popup and had a pull through site on the left hand side of the property near the entrance to the amusement park. We arrived the day before 7/4 and left the day after. If you have kids, then I would suggest staying on the other side of the campground closer to the big pool as it was a lengthy walk from where we were located. The big pool was great and the kids enjoyed the slides which are quite fast. (I tried them too!)The sites were very narrow and you are close to your neighbor, however I did not feel cramped as I was expecting from other reviews. As a result of narrow sites, if they are full, it could be a long walk to the bath house having to walk on the street around others sites. It only took us 15 minutes to get to Niagara falls and the campground was fairly quiet and only a mile or two from retail if needed. We rented the big wheel trikes during down time and my boys enjoyed them a lot. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The bath house was average (nothing good or bad) to say about them.

First time staying at a KOA campsite, it is well worth the extra cost. The campsite, itself, was pristine; the bathrooms were spotless. The staff was friendly. We stayed in a rustic cabin and it was perfect. It was also a nice jumping off point to travel around the region. There is a large grocery store about a mile down the road so you don't have to worry about supplies and such. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed at KOA due to the proximity of the U.S. side falls. It took a while to check in, even camping in a tent. The tent sites are in the back along the fence and there is a theme park on the other side of that fence. This campsite is not private at all you can see everyone and everything. We checked in around 2PM and while we were setting up we were greeted every 15 mins with a train of tourists on the other side of fence. We didn't mind since we were leaving to see the falls once we were set up. After a WONDERFUL evening at the falls we arrived back at our campsite astonished at how quite and dark it was. If we would have set up camp in the dark we wouldn't have even known that there was a theme park on the other side. We were up early around 8AM and gone by 8:30 and there still wasn't any sign of life from the theme park. So while it seems that it would be horrible it wasn't, the campsite served our purpose.

At this KOA, we had a lovely, small, grassy, open (read: no privacy) campsite in close proximity to the bathroom and pool (which was closed).

The campground was clean, well-kept, and not crowded (we stayed on a Tuesday in late September). The staff were exceptionally friendly and welcoming. Grand Island is very convenient to driving down to see Niagara Falls itself.

However, this campground is located next to a major highway. I mean RIGHT next to the highway. Despite how clean the site was, and how quiet our camping neighbors were, the noise of the highway kept me up ALL NIGHT.

This may be okay for those staying in RVs... but if you prefer tent-camping, DO NOT STAY HERE... unless you pack earplugs. Sheesh!

Room Tip: May be a good place for RV campers. If you are a tent-camper, bring ear plugs! Very noisy next to...
