Four Mile Creek State Park is located just 15 minutes north of the mighty Niagara Falls. The 275 campsites average 50' x 50' in size and feature both shady and sunny settings. Available services range from 10 50 amp sites and 121 30 amp sites to 144 non-electric sites accommodating the biggest rig to the most primitive tent site. 21 Prime sites, electric or non-electric, are located near the shores of Lake Ontario and offer spectacular panoramic views. The park has hiking trails for campers along the densely wooded bluffs. The marsh at the mouth of Four Mile Creek is home to fauna such as great blue herons, white tail deer and to flora such as stunning white trillium and greenbrier. A camp store is located at Four Mile Creek. Laundry facilities are located at comfort stations in the 100 and 200 areas. A modern playground is centrally located in the park.

With convenient access to Niagara Falls State Park you can enjoy all the park's attractions including the Maid of the Mist boat ride and Cave of the Winds.  Discounted tickets can be purchased at the campground.  Four Mile Creek is the ideal family camping spot with convenient access to beach swimming at Wilson Tuscarora State Park and pool swimming at Fort Niagara State Park.  Surrounded by great history, take a ride through the Erie Canal or tour the Lockport caves in an underground boat ride.  Four Mile Creek is located just minutes away from Old Fort Niagara where families can experience the history through re-enactments.  Recreational activities include fishing in Lake Ontario as well as hiking, volleyball and hands-on weekend interpretive activities for all to enjoy.  Racing fans can enjoy the roar of engines at Ransomville Speedways dirt track every Friday during the summer.  Also the campground is conveniently located near historic Lewiston where families can enjoy festivities such as jazz and art festivals,  free concerts on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at Artpark as well as theater and a large variety of great dining and the popular Whirlpool Jet Boat rides.  Best of all--your camping permit allows free parking at all area state parks!
