We arrived after the office closed, but there was a map waiting for us to direct us to our site. A worker was also driving around in a golf cart and stopped and asked if we needed assistance parking or if we preferred a larger site due to the size as our 5th wheel. We were located in the front of the park close to the office.
What To Do
We arrived during a weekday and the campground was quiet so we were able to enjoy the many amenities with no wait or crowds.
- Pedal Bikes ($)
- Mini Golf
- Laser Tag ($)
- Gaga Ball
The camp store had a good selection of basic items along with cute novelty camping items, toys, and gifts. Other amenities that we weren’t able to use but would be available during peak season includes a pool, kayak rentals, beach, outdoor movies, and zipline. During our stay the kids, especially liked the playground area that had a large sand pit, log playhouse and climbing structures. I appreciated the Adirondack chairs in the playground area, where I could sit and relax while the kids played.
We loved the atmosphere of park with the large log cabin office and small rental cabins located at the front of the park. There was a very relaxed environment. When the weekend approached more campers came in but there were still plenty of spots available. We were even able to extend our stay for an extra night with no issues. The campground was clean and well kept. Our one complaint was while we were there, we did get a lot of rain while we were there and some of the common areas of the park did have some minor flooding, however our site stayed dry.
Where To Go
One of the main reasons why we chose this campground was due to it’s close proximity to Niagara Falls State park. It is only about a 10 minute drive. Due to the time of year not a lot was open in the area but the Trolley was and were were able to walk throughout the park and view the falls. Other sites to see in the area include:
The park does participate with GoodSam, so we were able to get a 10% discount off of the nightly rate. We felt the price of $50-60 per night was reasonable for all of the amenities that the park had.
We would love to visit Branches of Niagara again during the summer season to partake in the many warm weather amenities. Although the fall was a beautiful time to visit to see the changing foliage and enjoy a peaceful, relaxing weekend. We definitely recommend you add this to your campground bucket list.
