hi, fellow casitans. a friend and i are planning a trip into ontario, canada later this summer. final destination will be rice lake. as a child, we went there often and i remember we crossed into canada via niagara falls after leaving ohio. our tentative plan is to leave texas, with a stop along the way, then a rest at my cousins' in ohio before travelling on in to canada.
is this still the easiest entry point for an ontario destination? any suggestions for camping sites along the way? we will both have our canine companions. i have shot records safely stowed and know about possible food restrictions from both sides of the border. i don't have a generator or solar yet, so boondocking would have to be limited to a night or two maximum, then we would need full hookups for a night or two. i know that firearms are taboo, so no worries there.
any and all suggestions are appreciated. happy camping and safe travels to all, claire and merlin, excellent schnoodle

update, well it took over 2 years, but friends and i will be entering ontario this thursday via niagara falls, with destination of rice lake, the same fishing camp, now a resort, i went to as a child. really excited. i now have a honda 2000 inverter/generator and am very comfortable boondocking, so this trip should be awesome. it's good when plans come to fruition, isn't it?

Claire, Norma & I wish you safe and enjoyable travels!  :)  When I was at Niagara Falls years ago...I had the strangest desire to jump into the blue/green water that was rushing past!  :unsure:

canada update, well we made it! enjoyed rice lake very much, so nice to revisit a childhood vacation destination that holds such wonderful memories at golden beach resort. roger passed away several years ago but his 2 daughters, olga and kelley, that my sister and i played with when we vacationed there as kids,took over and expanded/improved the resort. good to see/remember the old cabins we stayed in and the vintage fishing boats we used on this wonderful fishing lake. fall weather was wonderful, cool, with good color to the trees. awesome trip, and it only took 55 years to return!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
