Prince Edward Island. First big RV trip

So we've decided to go to PEI for our summer trip. Anyone know of a nice oceanfront campground with oceanfront sites?

Also, this will be our first big trip where we need to stop overnight and wondering where would be a good place to rest in Quebec.

Thirdly, not sure if we should brave Champlain bridge in Montreal to cross on the shore or drive through the city to go to 40 and cross in Quebec city or cross in Chataugay.

If you end up in Quebec City, you can camp on I'le D'Orleans. It is out of your way, but worth it if you have time.

Lots of ways to get through Montreal, more to see if you go down the Hwy 20 but I like the 40 better, less traffic I think.Just my opnion of course.

We stayed at Crystal Beach campground (a private cg) with a pull thru site next to the water. This was in mid Sept and very rainy. It would be nice mid summer. We stayed in Quebec KOA which was very busy even in bad weather. You will really enjoy PEI and the lobsters! I dont want to think about driving through Montreal (all under construction). Enjoy your trip. btw, Bay of Fundy in NB is excellent Prov park Have a great trip, we did

We stayed at the KOA in Cavendish.Not right on the ocean but very close and only about a minute from Cavendish Boardwalk.

PEI camping

I highly recommend Twin Shores, large campground, a short walk to beach, has some open and wooded sites.

We also stayed at the Cavendish KOA. Nice campground and very near Anne of Greengables. PEI is a pretty island and the bridge to get there is neat. We also hit the Bay of Fundy in NB, Cape Breton in NS, and Ovens in NS. Ovens is really neat as you camp directly on the water.

Pei

Two SC "geechies", we traveled there last summer. What a lovely place.
It's better to go in through Pictou, on the ferry, and come out on the bridge. Have you been to Cape Breton? The most beautiful landscape in eastern North America. But leave your camper in the lower latitudes, or put racing brakes on your truck.

We have been to PEI 4 times and taken just about any route possible, Champlain Bridge is fine, the tunnel is fine as well. A couple of times we drove through Vermont-New Hampshire-Maine-New Brunswick-Nova Scotia. We drove over the Confederation Bridge to PEI and at other times have taken the ferry. (the cost is the same, free to get there, you pay on the way back). If you want to go through Nova Scotia it is well worth taken the ferry from Saint John New Brunswick to Digby N.S. (it's a 3 hour crossing) The gas money pays for the ferry and you save yourself 8 hours driving.

We don't make reservations for campgrounds but play it by ear, sometimes one is very lucky and sometimes one has to compromise for a night, not a big deal, that's why we have RVs.

In PEI we like to stay in Murray River, it's a a small campground right on the river and we day tour from there. If you prefer the ocean there are many RV parks, just google PEI tourism.
