I stay 2 night at the Holiday Inn Niagara Falls Fallsview hotel ( would not recommend this hotel) 2 weeks ago to visit the Falls. Every body tries to sell you on an attraction to see the Falls but it's actually free to go. You may have to walk or pay $5 Canadian to park across the street but it's... More

It's disappointing that vehicles are allowed in this park. Could really be designed much better. Entry is free though so one can't complain too much. Worth crossing the border to check out the view from the Canadian side.

Had an enjoyable time walking around the park. Some of the areas definitely seem outdated. Lots of people were there so I recommend going early

My husband and I were in Niagara Falls over the Columbus Day weekend. We were very impressed that we could access the Park for free or drive in and pay a small fee to leave the car in the parking lot all day until around 10 p.m. at night. It was very enjoyable to walk day and night all around... More

This park was beautiful and well maintained. There was some remodeling going on but nothing that distracted you from all the sights. There were fireworks on Friday night and the Falls were lit up with colored lighting at night. I personally love the USA side of the Falls park system better because not as commerialized. Our hotel was only steps... More

We did not really park as the parking lot was all gravel and my husband has artificial knees and hips so walking on it is hard. We did not go on the Maid of the Mist for the same reason. Really not as nice as the Canadian side Actually off putting

We live an hour south and camped for the weekend nearby to show our 2 young children the wonder of the Falls. We were really impressed by the beauty of the park and how reasonable it was to "stay & play" in the city all day long! We all had a blast at Niagara Falls State Park, and will be... More

The falls are truly one of God's majestic wonders. The park is a nice system of trails from which to see the falls at different vantage points and trails through much fauna. We appreciated being able to go into the park early in the day and late in the evening to see the falls lit. The Maid of the Mist... More
