Well, you are way ahead of us! We are booked for 70 days this winter starting this weekend, and a week in Virginia for the First Battle of Manassas (Bull Run) 150th anniversary reenactment. Manassas National Battlefield Park (U.S. National Park Service)

We want to do a Canada trip (Maybe up the Gaspe Peninsula) but want to avoid as much mosquito and Black Fly Seasons as I can. No idea when that would be (any tips?).

Lou.......

The Gaspe is just the start of some really nice scenery in the Maritmes.

I've been out to the coast sveral times in the summer. Just remmeber, their summertime weather and temperatures start a little later than others, and certainly after the bug season for your concerns.

I personally wouldn't go until late July or early August to make sure you enjoy the temps and the drier weather. If you've got time, do a trip over to Prince Edward Island (you only pay when you come back off the island) and for sure the Cabot Trail in Northern Nova Scotia has some incredible scenery.

In 1970 I was 9 years old my parents took me on a trip to Canada, we traveled in a Cobra class C. Our travels took us up the east coast from Main over to Prince Edward Island (at that time you traveled by ferry) Then off to Ontario and Toronto but I think my favorite was Algonquin Provincial Park and Lake of Three Rivers campground. I remember two or three Native Indians camped next to us and they made us some log chairs and a totem poles. To this day I remember that trip.
I consider my self blessed that my parents and I spent a lot of time camping. An even better blessing will be passing it along. I want to take a trip back to Canada when my young children can enjoy it.
Do the trip, you will never forget it.

Try to avoid the Province of Quebec for the weeks of July 24th and 31st this year - much of the labour force there is on vacation. Probably over a million people are OFF, on the road, in hotels, campgrounds, lakes, restaurants, stores, everywhere. No kidding.

We are also booked in 3 Ontario provincial parks (Sandbanks, Bon Echo and The Pinery) and 2 weeks in Myrtle Beach at Ocean Lakes CG. Very excited.

Now, if that snow can melt away.

I was born in Canada (1958) and my mother moved to the U.S. back in 1972. I still visit family on a regular basis.

We are hitting the Maritimes in late July. From here we are going to Bar Harbor and Acadia and then up to New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and PEI. As a side note, if you are a good sized rig or you need 50 amp service, then you should book early. We noticed that not every campground can take a 40' rig and not everyone has 50 amp service. Granted the 50 amp may not be needed for the A/C, but you won't find it everywhere in that part of Canada.

This trip we did 3 times as a kid with the ol LTD stationwagon the Jayco popup. It is on my list to take my kids there soon. The Coast of Maine is awesome as well as the Maritimes.

Funny how everyone but service sector takes the time off in Quebec....

We stayed in Canadian National Parks in Fundy NP and the one on PEI...I remember Wolf Creek in Fundy quite well...I remember PEI, but the name of the campground....enjoy the trip....
