Like most Canadian commercial campgrounds we've stayed in, this place was packed in tight, but it provided a convenient place to stay while exploring Niagara Falls.

Our Site #: UNK- FHU
Privacy Rating (how spacious and private do the sites feel):
2/5: Site spacing here was pretty lousy. They pack em in row after row in these parking lot type campgrounds and there's just not much room to enjoy the outdoors. We had rigs on all sides of us and one night, we had a couple tents in the site next to ours. These weren't the tightest spaces we've been in, but they weren't great. Fortunately, our fellow guests were all considerate of one another and respectful of quiet hours. Unfortunately, it was so busy and crazy during the day, we actually tossed the dog in the car and took him to a nearby residential neighborhood in order to walk him.
Location Rating (accessibility to points of interest or to major highways):
4.5/5: The location of this campground was great for exploring Niagara Falls. There are WEGO bus stops all along the road, so guests can easily jump on the bus and be downtown in about 15 to 20 minutes. The road is a major thoroughfare, so there are all kinds of shops, restaurants, gas stations, and grocery stores as well. On the other hand, there are several strip clubs right across the street from the campground, which is likely a turn off for people with kids.
Site Quality and Big Rig Accessibility Rating (utilities and accessibility of campground hook ups):
3.5/5: We had to use leveling blocks as our site was pretty "lumpy" - we were parked on grass. The utilities are kind of oddly placed - with the sewer hook up more behind that site rather than next to it, but we managed. We had solid electrical and water service, so no issues there.
Technology and Customer Service Rating (online resources, reservations, campground wifi, and staff):
4/5: I emailed them to set up our reservation and they were quick and responsive. Check in was easy and the folks zipping around the campground in golf carts were friendly.
Overall Value Rating (the overall value of the campground; was it overpriced for what it was?):
4.5/5: For purposes of exploring Niagara Falls, we thought this was a very convenient campground that provided a lot of value for the money. If there had been better site separation it would have been a lot better, but overall, $45 per night for full hook ups and the ability to jump right on the WEGO bus and go see all the sights of Niagara Falls, seemed pretty reasonable to us.
When we were last in Canada, we noticed that most of their commercial campgrounds were extremely packed in, and this place was no different. It is very much a parking lot with little reason to hang out outside. On the other hand, the campground provides extremely convenient access to Niagara Falls and is a good base for exploring that area.
