This was our choice destination for our day trip and we weren't disappointed! The costumed staff made our journey through the ages well worth it! The Canada 150 Pass allowed us free entry to Fort George, so paying the $6.00 to park wasn't too annoying!...More

Great historical site and best of all, it was free admission on Canada Day. Not only is this a great place to visit for the fort, itself,but on Canada Day, its the place to be for the fireworks too!

Well done. Great to see people in period costume. Fort is spiffed up a bit for the occasion. Re enactment very good. Many participants with many different roles. Fascinating.

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
