A spectacular day in a flashy tourist city can still have a rustic, peaceful end. It isn’t necessary to stay at a high-rise hotel to enjoy Niagara Falls.

Especially for families but good for everyone, the Niagara Falls KOA Campground is an appealing option. Much cheaper than a hotel stay, it’s a nice, quiet way to end a busy day.

Relax in your lawn chair around a campfire and talk about the fun you had in the city, which is only a short drive away anyway.

The good thing about this Lundy’s Lane campground is it’s only five kilometres (three miles) outside the heart of the city. Drive-in if you want, but if you’d rather avoid the cost of parking your vehicle take the WeGo.

That’s the tourist bus that stops at the campground every half-hour. Its route covers the entire tourist district, and you can hop on and off all day. The falls, the casinos, Clifton Hill, the butterfly conservatory – they’re all on the WeGo route.

At that distance, it’s also an easy bicycle ride to most of those destinations.

The KOA campground offers 50 max amp service, wi-fi, snack bar and that old favourite mini golf, a pavilion, hot tub and sauna and a ‘kamping kitchen.’

It also provides the joy of being outdoors, sleeping under the stars (or a tent or trailer roof, but you get the point).

Niagara Falls can be a pretty busy place.

Lots of cars, lots of people and a ton of draws from great restaurants to casino gaming, skyscraper towers, old-time arcades and wax museums, a magician’s theatre and go-kart racing.

Not only that, the campground is in the Lundy’s Lane district which means a short walk away there are many of those amenities, plus the Oh Canada Eh? Dinner theatre and one of Canada’s largest indoor water parks.

It’s a lot to take in, and at the end of it all there is nothing more peaceful than going to sleep in a green, pretty campground.
