Yes the canadian Rockies are always worth the trip, heaven on earth.

I will add though I am still not sure after 40 years if my wife has forgiven me for taking her camping on our honeymoon to Waterton in late May/ early June.

Trust me a blizzard in June is possible, I speak from experience.

Unlikely though.

Anything is possible - but not the exception to the rule.

Icefields parkway is amazing

Things to see along the TCH. First picture is of the Terry Fox Memorial. The second is the sleeping giant in Lake Superior, the third is somewhere in then prairies and the last is just starting to enter the Rockey mountains east of Calgary.

There are many dead spots for cell phone service when traveling Northern Ont. The DW and I have taken this route from just south of Ottawa to Victoria BC 5 times. We have done this route the last 2 years. If you need and info PM me. i will try to answer your questions the best I can. We usually travel this route late fall and early spring before most CG are open.
There is also a very nice campground in Kakabeka Falls (Happyland Campground) we stayed at. Reasonable prices and the scenery in the area is beautiful and it is only a short run west of Thunderbay just off 17.

Happyland CG is a nice place to stay. It is closed most times when we are traveling the area. The first year we went west we stayed there.

Caper, Is the TCH one road, or a mixture of other roads ? When I got my routing instructions from Good Sam Club it indicated a bunch of roads EG: route 11, route 17 etc.
Thanx for your help

In Ontario, Highway 17 is the TransCanada. 11 runs north from North bay and curves around to the west. It and 17 meet up again in Nipigon and from there to Thunder Bay it is known as 11/17. They split up again after T-Bay.

11 is an easier drive grade-wise. 17 follows the shore of Lake Superior and has both spectacular scenery and lots of steep grades.
