Beautiful grassy, flat campground with a well appointed playground in the center of the loop. Was great to see families enjoying and everyone starting their fires at dusk. The bathrooms are immaculate. The location is on the US side of Lake Ontario with beautiful sunsets with a very relaxing shoreline. Was perturbed with the $9 transaction fee for reserving through ReserveAmerica. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The neighboring town of Youngstown has great restaurants. Spend time along the shore looking for sea glass! Had never seen Niagara Falls and wouldn't bother to go again; too much commercialism. But definitely would visit this campground again.

State Park with electric only. Water spigots throughout park and dump stations. Electric worked fine. Verizon signal ok, AT&T weak. Was able to get satellite signal. Sites level. There is a $5 upcharge for non-NY residents. This park is located about 15 minutes from Niagara Falls. Very quiet park. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Parking at the Discovery Center at Niagara Falls and riding the trolley was very easy. It is a great location for getting on and off the trolley as most people are ending their trip there and there is plenty of seats open.

Expensive for a state park. It is very nice and the second time I have stayed here. On season is crowded on weekends so make sure you reserve. We wanted to extend our stay another day and looked online for a site and there were two available. We went to the office and they said they could not add it on for us until the next morning. The girl then informed us that they couldn't let one of the sites go the next day, as their boss had blocked that site for friends. That is just wrong and I will send a letter to the state concerning that matter including the name of the boss that told them that. We could have booked it anyway online but we found another campground to go to. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Great New York State park! Site was wide and needed only minor leveling. Check in was a breeze, nice and helpful staff. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring, too hot during our stay to have a fire. Would stay here again. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Fort Niagara is very close and worth the visit. Also at the Fort is a shuttle that will take you to the falls and attractions in between, and its free this year. Lockport NY is 30 minutes away, and the tour of the locks by boat was a great time. Oh don't forget the winery's.

Nice park but really missed a swimming beach. Lots of skunks and raccoons around the sites at night, yuck. Clean bathrooms, nice roadways. Beautiful sites on Lake Ontario but they should have walking trails so others can enjoy the view. As it is, you feel like the view is exclusive to those on the lake sites and they are offended with others walking on their sites, even if the back. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Rate based on week long stay. Campsites are all back-in sites with some 50 amp, 30 amp, and primitive campgrounds. Wides spaces on grass with fire rings and picnic tables. Nice hiking around the area and easy drive to Niagara Falls and Canada. Fresh water points all around camp site and some may be close enough to hook to to refill tanks. AT&T service was marginal. Some shade and with careful planning you can get satellite TV. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

I have been staying at this park in various sites for over 10 years, at least 2 to 3 times a year. We absolutely love it ,here especially site 240. We stay in other state parks, we live in PA and also camp there, but none compare to this state park and some of the others in NY. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Online was blocked out so we called and then did a 'walk in' reservation. The price was awesome, only $24/night to be near Niagara. The park is ON Lake Ontario and you can see Toronto!!! No water or sewer hook up but they do have a fresh water fill station and hose, and we dumped on our way out. Sites are huge. Restrooms are large and clean, the trash was never full and the floors always clean. Good size showers, and handicap accessible. We would definitely stay here again and consider checking out other state parks! We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This beautiful state park is on the shore of Lake Ontario, and just 20 minutes away from Niagara Falls State Park and all its attractions. A number of premium sites have a nice lake view on the 200 Loop, as did our non-premium site across the road. The electric only site (#225) we were on was level and spacious, with a picnic table and fire pit. Water spigots are spread throughout the park, and there was about 75' from our site. There is a dump station on the 200 loop, and another one at the main park entrance. The camp store has the basics, but not much else. The staff is friendly and helpful. We stopped here on a layover on our way to Ontario and Michigan, and we will be back again! We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Fort Niagara and several other smaller state parks are nearby, as well as Niagara Falls State Park, and well worth a day trip. The Canadian side of the falls is also an easy day trip from the park. Many restaurants, stores, etc. are available in the nearby towns.

We made a reservation for five nights just to do some sight seeing in the area, but we liked the park so much we added another five nights. The sites are fairly large, and the grounds are beautiful. Since our site was close to a water spigot, we were able to refill our water tank halfway through our stay without having to move the coach. Check their map when reserving to see where the water spigots are. We had 50 amp service which was nice since it was very hot the first few days of our visit. The showers were modern, clean, and a short walk from our site so we used them every day. It was also a short walk to the shore of Lake Ontario where our dog went for a swim every day, and on clear days we could see the Toronto skyline across the lake. When we checked in, our 50 amp outlet wasn't working, but the 30 amp was. We reported it to the office and in five minutes someone came out, tested it, and replaced the 50 amp breaker and all was well. Great service! We were from out of state so our fee was $29 per night but we thought that was reasonable. We had weak Verizon signal but no AT&T throughout the park. With our cell booster set up we had strong Verizon LTE and medium AT&T 4G (good enough for phone calls, but data was slow). The park filled up during the weekends but was mostly empty on weekdays. Overall we found our stay to be relaxing, peaceful, and quiet, and we almost stayed even longer. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice campground with large sites with a picnic table and fire pit. As others have stated, it can be difficult to level on several sites. Our neighbor's site is so unlevel that everyone who has ever had that site parks 30' away from the electric pole and has to have a lo-o-o-ng cord. Some sites are shady and some sunny. As others have mentioned, there are water spigots throughout the park but some are difficult to reach from the road. The road from Niagara Falls to the park is 'disgraceful' as one of the Park Rangers called it. Every joint in the cement is loose and pitted. That said, we would return to the park. The positives out weigh the negatives - if you can get the right site.
We had no trouble with out Verizon coverage. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

We used this as a base for seeing Niagara Falls. About 25 minutes North of the falls, this 300-site campground had very nice electrical sites for our RV with a view of Lake Ontario. Roads are well paved and our site was quite level. The electricity was good also. Poor Verizon cell coverage (1 bar). You MUST back-in to all sites. Some of the Premium campsites along the water would be great for trailers with large rear windows. Motorhomes, with their best view out the front windshield, are best across the road from a premium site. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Be careful about cell phone coverage. You're close to Canada and your phone, if in Roaming mode, could accrue international charges very easily. Also, the exit from the Robert Moses Parkway to Four Mile Creek road is in very poor condition with multiple large potholes.

Very nice park. Some sites are full sun, some have shade. We were in 263. A bit of a slope, but great shade and close to the restroom & shower. Seemed strange parking on the grass and not a pad, but when in Rome, etc. The camping pass got us into Fort Niagara & Niagara Falls SP's & free parking. Would do this again in a heart beat. Nice & cool for mid-July for a mid-western couple. Got down to 46 one night. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

As others have posted, the biggest problem was uneven sites. I have no levelers and use boards instead. It took one layer of boards under two tires and two layers under a third tire to get my motorhome even somewhat level. A new layer of gravel would help as ruts and low spots have developed in some sites. Another problem was that the water spigots were spread around the campground, so you had to find one on the right side of the road, pull over, get your hose out and fill up. The one I used first took 25' plus 10' of water hose to reach my motorhome since the spigot was so far back from the road. A couple of water fill sites with pull-down hoses would have been very handy. Also, I had expected a little view of Lake Ontario from my premium site across the road from the lake, but trees resulted in only a tiny peek between trees. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

This is the closest state park to Niagara Falls State Park, which is why a lot of people I talked to were staying here. It is also just down the road from Fort Niagara, which I enjoyed more than the horribly commercial falls. Fort Niagara State Park has an outdoor pool and a very nice fort and interpretive center, so don't miss it. One benefit of staying in this state park is that you do not have to pay the $10 parking fees at the other two state parks.

Some sites are not at all level. Nothing on the reservation system tells you that, before you reserve a site. There is no fresh water at the dump station. You must block the road and fill up at a water faucet in the campground loops. Unlike a previous review stated, you can not leave your hose hooked up to a water faucet. We were rudely informed of that by what appeared to be the Park manager. Verizon coverage is very minimal. The grass insects were terrible this time of year. Most sites are large and clean. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
