We spent a very enjoyable few hours looking around the fort and watching some of the reenactments as well as reading all about the history. We thought the whole experience is superbly managed and well run. Definitely recommended.

We took the Eskoot guided tour to the Fort George . It was quite interesting historical place to visit. The staff there were very knowledgeable and friendly. It's worth to visit the place while staying at Niagara on the Lake.

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
