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.

The only reason for an 8 pout of 10 is lack of water at each site. There is no sewer either. There is a 2 station dump station near the exit. Sites are grass and level. Some trees at some sites and some tree-free sites. Roads are mostly paved and well kept. No low tree limbs. Large rigs are OK. Friendly, helpful staff. Camp fire rings at almost all sites; wood available at store. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

This beautiful, spacious, well maintained New York state park is on the shores of Lake Ontario. Our campsite was large and level, and located on the edge of a very tall bluff overlooking the lake. The view was mostly obscured by trees, but the sunset was fantastic. There is a small area where you can reach the rocky shoreline of the lake. This park is very popular for people visiting Niagara Falls that is close by. Even in the off-season it was pretty busy. There is lots of green space in the park. Sites only had electricity. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Great State Park for visiting Niagara Falls. Your stay includes free parking around the falls. Mostly level back in sites with room between others. 50 amp but no water or sewer at site. Faucets around park and dump station. Nice store and food. Waterfront on Lake Ontario. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed our time at this beautiful campground, which is close to Canada and Fort Niagara. This large campground is off Lake Ontario. Campground is about 20 min. from border crossing and 10 min. from Fort Niagara. Campsites are large, but located on grass or dirt. Roads and campsites are big rig friendly. Since this campground only provides electric, a dumping station and fresh water stations are available. Bathrooms & showers were clean. Small store was open during the weekend that includes firewood and some small grocery items. Verizon phones got weak 4g. DirecTV (free standing satellite) had no issue. Campground includes a kid’s playground and large grass fields for camping games and picnics. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Campground bustles with activity in summer, very full with tents on up to big motorhomes, many families, lots of coming and going. Sites are grass with some gouges from past campers' equipment that became standing puddles for a few days after rain. Our site had a maple tree for good shade. Showers were so busy there was a line of three women waiting to use the three stalls one morning, restrooms take a beating. Great location for visiting falls, fort, wineries, Erie Canal in Lockport. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

I can't in all honesty give a park a 10 that doesn't have pull-throughs, water, sewer, cable, etc. That being said, this is a very nice state park with large, shady, and private sites. They are back-in only even if you have a premium lake view site. There are only about 8 premium lake view sites with 30 amp electric. There are about 8 or 10 50 amp sites but not lake view. Water faucets are located along the loop roads so you can fill your tank easily. You can leave your hose connected using a "y" adapter if you have a site with a water faucet in front. In the 200 loop there were no paths to the restrooms so you may have a long trek in the dark at 2 AM. I don't know about the other loops. The restrooms were nice anyway. The camp store was closed. Sign said that they were looking for new management. Verizon service was spotty but our MiFi worked well with a Wilson amp and external antenna. Over the air TV was OK with stations from Buffalo and Toronto, which was visible across Lake Ontario. The primary advantage in staying here is that you are close to Niagara Falls, the fee is reasonable, and you get free parking in the state park lots at the falls. There is a lot of construction on the American side and parking is tight. We would stay here again. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Great state park. Location location location. Only 15 minutes from Niagara Falls. No water hookups. Showers close to office being renovated so had to walk to next building. Park store not open. No one available to run it. I would visit again. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Wonderful NY State Park with well laid out sites. We chose non-electric because of our solar set up and the site backed up to Lake Ontario with night lights of Toronto across the way. Friendly, helpful staff and volunteers. Large sites with grass, clean bathhouse and laundry room. Close to Niagara Falls and easy cross over to Canada. Great trails and biking in park. Fills on weekends, but many walk in sites available thru the week. We will definitely be back to this lovely park! We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Rate includes internet fee and non-resident fee. Park pass allows free entrance to any NY State Parks during the length of your stay. Four Mile Creek State Park is close to Niagara Falls. Very nice park on Lake Ontario. Electric only; however, water and dump are available. Fifth wheels, try to get 224 or 226 to have your rear window overlooking the Lake. Excellent restrooms and cell & data services are acceptable using Verizon. An easy 20 minute drive to Niagara Falls attractions. Fort Niagara is closer and very interesting.

A very nice state park. Sites in our loop were quite spacious, but the loop closest to office was busier (tents & campers) and seemed closer together. In the electric area, the lake sites were all full, but in reality only a few of them really had great lake views so I wouldn't be deterred if unable to nab one of these "premium" sites. We used this location to visit Niagara Falls. It was fine, but about a 15-20 minute drive away. We did go to the Canada side and entered at the crossing closest to the park. We returned via the Rainbow Bridge. I'm not sure if this is always the case, but we lucked out doing it this way. The line going the other way for each of our crossing was backed up for a long ways. As we did it we crossed quickly both times (bring your passports!). The facilities were very nice at the park, showers good, staff friendly. Nice little camp store for treats or few grocery items. As we expected, state parks offer inexpensive yet great camping experiences. We did enjoy walking down by the lake and looking across to Toronto. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.
