Where to Camp and Things To Do

While the warm, sunny days may be fading, there’s so much to look forward to during the fall season! Fall camping is incredible and you can experience the best of it when you visit Niagara Falls during this very special time of year.

In Niagara, you’re perfectly situated to enjoy the crisp, cool weather and fall colors. You can also take advantage of fall festivals, visit award-winning wineries, explore hiking and biking trails, or cozy up to your campfire after a day of fall-themed events.

At Sherkston Shores Beach Resort & Campground, the scenery is simply serene. The forests and farms surrounding our 560-acre resort on Lake Erie transform into a beautiful sea of red, yellow, and orange in September and October.

To help you plan for the season, we’ve given you our top five fall activities to enjoy in Niagara.
