The city of Lockport is located in upstate New York, close to the border with Canada. It is a small but growing city which is surrounded by the much larger cities of Niagara Falls, Buffalo, and Rochester. Lockport was shaped by the development of the Erie barge canal which intersects the town. This was important to commerce in the region during the early 1800s as it allowed larger ships to pass through. No longer used by barges, this canal now makes an ideal spot for anglers, joggers, and dog walkers.

When you're looking to rent an RV in Lockport, you'll find its proximity to Niagara Falls and the Great Lakes to be a big plus. There are more than enough natural wonders to explore around Lockport, with stunning panoramic views across Lake Ontario, Niagara River Gorge, and Niagara Falls. There's a lot of history here too, dating back as far as 8,000 years, with Native American artifacts found in and around the city.

Discover Lockport

The Great Outdoors

One of the biggest draws to the area is Niagara Falls. This immensely powerful waterfall is world-famous, and its strength is something that everyone should witness. There are plenty of ways to see it too, from viewing platforms or by boat ride. There's even the Skylon Tower, located just across the border in Canada. This tower gives you a 360-degree view of Niagara Falls and the surrounding city skylines from an elevation of over 700 feet. You can even grab a bite to eat from one of two restaurants while you enjoy the view.

If you are looking for a picturesque walk through nature, you can head to Iroquois National Wildlife Rescue with the Lockport RV rental. This wildlife refuge may be a bit quieter than the more famous attractions in the area, perfect if you want to escape the large crowds. This swampy park is home to lots of rare creatures such as mink and eagle, providing a wealth of reasons to visit the area. Iroquois also has historical significance, as a federation of Native American tribes lived to the north, which is where it gets its name.

If you rent an RV in Lockport, then you have to visit the Great Lakes, particularly nearby Lake Ontario. This incredible body of water gives visitors much to do when they visit. With more water sports than you can name, from the exciting kiteboarding to the more relaxed paddleboarding, there's something for everybody here. If you're not looking to get wet, fishing and hiking are also popular activities, with various types of salmon, trout, and bass swimming in the expansive waters.

RV Parks

When you rent a motorhome in Lockport, there are a variety of places to set up your basecamp. Scott's Family Campground is just across the border in Ontario. This large campground has over 230 gravel campsites available. Each site has 15 and 50 amp electricity, and around 100 sites have full hookups. Each site also comes with a table and trash pick-up. All ages are welcome, and despite its size, it's worth calling ahead to make a reservation just in case.

Another option for the RV rental near Lockport is Niagara Falls KOA. Another large campground, Niagara Falls KOA offers over 150 campsites, some of which are paved. Over 100 of these sites offer full hookups, with 30 and 50 amp electrical supported. Big rigs are also welcome, with some sites providing pull-through access and room for slide-outs. There's even a shuttle bus to make transportation easier.

Exploring the City

One of the best ways to explore the area when you book an RV in Lockport is via its historical and beautiful canals. The Erie Canal is no longer used to transport goods, making it the perfect way to see Lockport. Tours along the canal will take you through its five locks, used to raise and lower the water level to allow ships to pass through. You'll also pass under lift bridges and under Lockport's Big Bridge, one of the widest bridges in the U.S. This is a unique way of viewing Lockport which the whole family will enjoy.

If you find these canals interesting, then you might want to consider a tour of the Lockport Caves. Situated on Erie Canal, the Lockport Caves were used for mining and in the construction of the canals. Visitors have the unique experience of embarking on an underground boat ride to see various geological formations such as stalactites while drifting down the tranquil waterways and echoing tunnels. The Lockport Caves have a lot of history, and due to their unique nature, a visit here is worth considering.

If you time your visit with the Lockport campervan rental just right, you might get to experience the historic Niagara County Fair that takes place in Lockport during late July and early August. This is the largest fair in the state, with over 35,000 people flocking to the fair every year. There's something for everyone at this 200-year-old fair, with food vendors, fairground rides, and scheduled events including BMX demonstrations and antique tractor parades.
