Something not right?

Description

Although the physical signs in the lot state that parking is $20 for 24 hours Mon-Thurs and $30 for 24 hours Fri-Sun, the electronic pay stations do NOT let you pay for 24 hours. Max at the pay station is 4 hours at $5/hour, with option to extend (at $5/hour) until 3 a.m. The electronic pay stations and signs on the lot do not match up. We didn't want to risk it and went to the Wal-Mart about 10-15 minutes away.

A little noisy until midnight and a bit exposed but stayed No with no problems. Paid for the 24 hour parking without any issues.

Although the physical signs in the lot state that parking is $30 for 24 hours (weekends), the electronic pay station only allows parking for 4 hours at $5/hour, with an option to extend only until 3 a.m. Overnight parking is not an option at either pay station.

Report Check-In

We arrived at about 10:10 pm. The signs at the pay station say 24 hours, but when you use the pay station it only lets you pay by the hour ($5), 4 hour max. It also expires at 3 am. So no overnight parking. We went next door and payed $20 to park in the Holiday Inn parking lot overnight.

Camped in my sedan here overnight. No one else was in the lot but I felt pretty safe. It’s very well lit and most people in the area are other tourists and families. You can walk to pretty much everything from here.

Report Check-In

Sign says no RV’s or busses. We ask at the information center across the street if it would be ok as there were only 2 cars in the lot. She said it is only enforced durning peak season. 2 others stayed the night also but they fit in regular parking spot

cornered by a building and an intersection, two pay stations at each end. Bought the $20 weekday rate ticket for 24hrs, I was the only car in the lot in the morning.

I was nervous because I don't usually park in cities but we had no problems. It was fairly loud until around 11, but that was at least partly because of a firework display at 10 pm. we visited Goat Island and the falls, slept in the parking lot, then got up and got on one of the early boats out to Horseshoe falls since it was just a few minutes walk. it worked out nicely.

This spot is exactly how it’s been described.
We stayed parked exploring the park in the evening, stayed overnight, and left the next afternoon. We were the only vehicle in the lot and played things a bit *risky* as we didn’t pay for parking (shhh). We had zero issues whatsoever. Felt safe, and could even hear the falls in the faint distance. Super close to the park entrance where there are public restrooms!

Great parking spot .25 mile from the falls. $10 for overnight parking, I’m on my second night. Starbucks close by, the Niagara Falls visiting center has a nice restroom they’ll let you use for free. Definitely recommend!

Report Check-In

Nice and close to the falls. We could hear the roar of the river. Very quiet and we were the only vehicle in the lot. $10 for 24 hours in the off-season.

Ideal camper parking spot! Arrived around 2 pm-ish to check it, and the location is accessible to all attractions and right next to the Niagara Falls State Park. After running errands, we came back, put up most of the window covers, and then headed to view the falls. I came back around 8-ish and hung out for the rest of the night. Put up the remaining window covers and went to sleep. No disturbances at all :)

Report Check-In

Don’t bother with all the other parking around, you’ll end up staying here because it’s the the only 24 hour and it’s walking distance from everything, including the falls & Holiday Inn’s bathroom, coffee, and POOL. Cops showed up around 11:30pm, saw 2 overnight camper vans, chilled in the lot for a few, then left w/o incident. If you don’t care about overnight views, it is a great secure place to stay. 3.5 stars out of 5; would stay again. (Take our scale with a grain of salt; we’re still noobs 😆)
***rates confirmed - $20 for week nights / $30 for weekend nights***

This is the spot!! Confirmed, $20 for 24 hrs! Perfect central location, walking distance to the falls and plenty of places to eat. The Anchor Bar is steps away for a pint and their famous wings!!
Ahwoooo!!

Convenient spot to enjoy the state park and stay the night.
The $20 fee is weeknights... Overnight $$ for Fri-Sun is $30.
The lot was relatively quiet with sounds from the rapids on a Sunday night.

Great spot close to the Falls, US side. Only $20 during the week and $30 on the weekends. Stayed one night on a Thursday and had the lot to myself...slept like a baby.

Worked as described. A nice quiet night walking distance to the falls. Make sure to pay the $20. Signs say no RV or bus, I have a van.

This is a pay to park lot $20 for 24 hrs. It’s the closest legal thing we could find on the US side, but it does cost a bit of money. We tried parking by the rapids in the state park (the parking lot didn’t have any signs saying we couldn’t), but a police officer woke us up and told us to follow him here to this spot (it’s a very short distance from where we were).
