This park costs $8 per car to go into. Probably wouldn't be worth it except you get your money back if you go to the fort. Would be a nice place to picnic. Didn't see any camping and the pool was closed.

Historic park in a beautiful setting overlooking Lake Ontario and the Niagara River. Fully restored and well maintained. Excellent introductory video and informative tour guide and demonstrations. Gained an appreciation for the strategic location of the fort.

Very nice fort to walk around to look at history. Many opportunities for photos inside and outside. You are able to see Canada from the fort
