I have visited Quebec city and it really is a must.

We stayed at 'Camping Canadien-Américain,(418) 878-4254' witch is closed to the town. If you chose to go there, take highway 40 east from Montreal.

The Quebec city Koa is on the south shore, that means crossing the bridge to go to the city and it has lots of traffic and delays.

We really like St Andrews and Campabella Island. These are both on the bay of funny (amazing 20' change between high and low tide). Campabella has President Roosevelt's summer 'bungalow' and a light house that you can walk out to only at low tide! Weather is kind of iffy after September.

We are also planning a one year trip across Canada and the US. Does anyone have suggestions for a lightweight netted shelter to keep bugs out? Thanks

I bought one of these on sale in April at Cabelas... I have used it in May, June and July at three different campgrounds for a total of a month.

It is 35# total weight, quick and easy to setup with two people, and does a great job of keeping out bugs, and wind and rain from one direction ( due to two panels can be covered) and very stable. It comes with a useable carry case too.

The negative reviews are from the fact that the fabric is very thin and the roof will drip in an hours long or very heavy rain ( not a quick shower). I fixed this by spraying waterproofing on the roof during a dry day and it no longer leaks at all.

I just did a 9 day trip (was going for 14 days but had to shorten) in 39ft rv from NJ to NB- Bay of Fundy/hopewell rocks, NS Cabot Trail look Clockwise, Halifax then home.
It was rushed- covered 2900 miles- but in the end rushed was better then not going.

The Cabot Trail was so beautiful, Just to drive the road was breath taking. We only did small hikes because of time.

Best of luck- Enjoy yourself.

I look forward to hearing about your trip. We are plann8ng a trip next year when we retire. We will leave BC mid May and spend 2 weeks getting to New Brunswick. Then we have 4 months in the Maritime provinces before heading home at the end of September.
Excited but also know it will take planning. 38 foot Georgetown, towing Jeep Cherokee.

So this was my 1st major trip in my MH have all ways had trailers/5t wheel. I did not bring my toad- I regret that I did not.
By the bay of Fundy / Hopewell rocks- I stayed at Home - Ponderosa Pines Campground Beautiful, clean- roomy camp ground (full hook up available)

On our way to the Cabot trail we stopped at Victoria Park in Turo- could spend a full day in this great little park.
Then off the the Cabot Trail and stayed at Hideaway Campground about Mid point on the Cabot trail, Campground sits on a cliff over looking the ocean.

spent a night in Baddeck Cabot trail campground, nice people but to tight for me. Don't miss the Alexander Gram Bell national historic site.

Then it was off to Halifax where we stayed at the Shubie campground.Small campground with LOW wires, took off my tv antenna here. We took a cab to the ferry to downtown Halifax. Great city so much to see.

I will go back someday. I will stay at Hideaway Campground for a week and bring my car and explore and hike more.

The Cabot Trail can be a challenge to drive. Large but steep. As are many roads that are not major highways. Many are 10' lanes with NO shoulder. This made for some high intensity driving. But I was in a 39' mh.

Enjoy your trip

If you're going to PEI check and see if Twin Shores in Darnley are open when you are going to be there. Probably the best park on PEI.

SherryT when you plan your retirement tri next year, be sure to include Newfoundland , we have been there 8 of the last 9 years and next year we are taking our 2 10 year old grandchildren with us. the younger ones will have to wait till another year.

Newfoundland is defiantly on the list. We have been there and loved it. I think we will do 3 weeks, maybe taking the short ferry over and the long ferry back.
Just searching out campgrounds��
