Welcome from Ontario. Congratulations on your new camper. Wife and I are from NS. Couple years ago went for a visit in our TT. Stayed in a real family spot called Hilltop by Economy just ourside Truro. On our way through NB stopped at a spot overnight called Rivers Edge or Rivers Bend which is at Edmunston. You always know when you are in NB when you get stuck behind a logging truck, at least the highways have been fixed.

Kevin

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome to the group! We are looking forward to camping this year for sure... The snow is melting and we see a light at the end of the dark tunnel lol... We have been checking out all the campground around the maritimes and have a list of a few we want to hit! Getting our camper stocked and ready.. Got the extra foam for the mattress, 2-6v batteries & 1500w inverter should help! It's almost as fun as being out there!

We spent 6 weeks in the Maritimes in 2012, Best vacation we ever took. Masena to Quebec, thru MB to Moncton, Took the bridge to PEI and the ferry back to NovaScotia. Halifax Peggys cove, Cabot trail, Digby, Halls Harbor, Hopewell Rocks etc. That just scratches the surface. We did not make it to Newfoundland. There was a hurricane bearing down on the area we would have stayed.

We enjoy Caribou Munroe's Island ... its a Provincial Campground if you don't mind boondocking (no hook-ups) It's only 20 minutes away from home so very convenient for the weekend getaways. It has a great beach. However, there's a place in Cape Breton called MacLeod's Beach Campground; near Inverness about 10 minutes drive North. It has hookups if needed but also fantastic sites along the beach with a spectacular view with rolling hills and sunsets. (boondock sites) There is a winding brook from the hills that flows through the sandy beach and into the ocean. My kids played there for hours! And its not a crowded place.

Of course if you want to go further North into Cape Breton; the Highlands National Park will not dissappoint. Tonnes of hiking in the Mountains/hills (we call them mountains cause its the biggest hills we have Swimming at beaches or near water falls. Lots to do if you enjoy the outdoors.

Awesome thanks for the campground tips! Not sure if we would make it all the way up to the highlands this summer but someday hopefully! the other places sound very nice! We are starting to get camping fever this snow can't go quick enough!
Happy camping!
