The Canadian falls are much better, and the view from Canada of BOTH falls is astounding. If you’re going to come here (Canada), I would recommend camping outside St. Catherine’s, which is a medium-sized city about 20 minutes down the road from the falls. There are several camping grounds outside St. Catherine’s (just open it on Google Maps and search ‘campgrounds’). But definitely be prepared for cold weather. I definitely wouldn’t camp anywhere in Ontario from November 1st until May 1st, and I would be surprised if any campgrounds were open for tent camping.

TogetherThroughLife:  yeaaaah no there is no where to camp. the falls aren’t like in the middle of the woods, they are by towns and the area around both sides of the falls is kinda dirTy and well known for crime, esp on the American side. If you are hell bent on camping there is a campsite at a amusement park a 15 min drive away called fantasy island you can look into but it’s like an RV lot. I think maybe tents are ok I’ve never beeN to say. I would recommend getting a nice hotel on the Canadian side, Clifton hill is a super touristy area and probably the best thing to do up there. Lots of fun shops and resturaunts, fun things like arcades, mini golf, rides, and haunted houses. There is also a revolving resturaunt which is kinda cool. There is really nothing to do on the American side besides the casino; there is a great outlet mall But that’s not close to the falls themselves. The Canadian dollar is pretty much on par with the U.S. dollar right now and the prices are similar so it’s worth it to go to Canada. Yes there are adventure passes you can get on both sides. Some include the maid of the most and cave of the winds (walk next to the falls). There is a Clifton hill pass that you can use to enjoy activities there too, but that is seperate.
