Was very much impressed by this super awesome historic site. The park staff were professional in what they said and did and the grounds were well maintained and taken care of indeed. :)

Little to add with 840+ earlier reviews. Take time to talk with the staff. They are extremely well trained and knowledgable of the history of the fort and the War of 1812. The staff was genuinely interested in sharing their knowledge. Ask about some Vermonters...More

Great location, and great history lessons. Make sure you head inside the blockhouse to meet with the university kids playing soldier and talking about life back in the day. A great place for a quick stop while visiting the Niagara area.

Rain or shine this place has stuff going on. It seemed every half hour they had another demonstration of cannons or guns or history lessons. If that wasn't happening there was a marching band and cookies so border wasn't an option. Make sure to allow...More

This was our first visit to Fort George, so we had no idea what to expect. We found it so fascinating reading and learning more about our country's history. It's very well presented. One thing missing though. It would be nice if there was a...More

We'd seen Fort George several times when visiting Niagara-on-the-Lake and the Niagara Parkway, but never visited until now. As it is the Canada 150 celebrations, entry was free, so a great deal right off the bat. Fort George guards the outlet of the Niagara River...More

Grateful that you got your answer. Since it it Canada's 150th Anniversary, National Parks are, or at least were, giving free admission, just pay for parking. ENJOY!

My answer may be too late, but this year (2017) is Canada's 150th birthday so many of their parks are free entrance. We didn't pay an entrance fee, just $6 Canadian to park. It's not that far to drive from Niagara Falls... More
