Niagara Falls Camping Roadtrip

Niagara Falls, Racoon Creek and Hocking Hills

I've been to New York City, Matthew has not. Someday we may go for a weekend, but when I put together our 50-state plan, we decided to hit New York by visiting the western edge. We will be pulling our camper and staying in multiple states.

We will drive a lot on this trip and then stay two days at a time to see three parks. Niagara Falls is the obvious bucket list destination. I am hoping to cross into the Canada side since I've heard it is even better there. We will also visit Racoon Creek State Park in Pennsylvania, and Hocking Hills State Park on our way back home.

This will be our second multi-state camping trip so we know we can handle it. Booking two days for several of the stops should make it easier. It is definitely harder to explore on the drive not knowing where you can safely pull off with a camper, so my planning was limited to when we arrive at our destinations.
