Canada 2014 camping ideas!

Postby barrbell » Mon Jul 22, 2013 7:09 pm

Hi,
We love fish creek and want to broaden our horizons next year and try camping in Canada!

We are a young family with two boys ages 6 and 9.

We do not want to go too far from the border.
We will be crossing over at the Alex bay crossing.

Would Love some advice on campgrounds in that area.....
Which website do you use to book campsites in Canada?
I should note we would like campgrounds with at least electric and room for our 26 foot camper!

Thanks so much!!!!!

Great idea!

We have some great campgrounds in Ontario, just more expensive. We prefer Provincial Parks which are like State/DEC parks. Our favourite is Bon Echo about 1.5 hours north of Alex Bay. Other options would be Algonquin Park (several campgrounds) or even Charelston Lake.

Visit http://ontarioparks.com for more info and to reserve. Expect to pay $45 a night plus 13% tax. More for hook ups. Many do have electric at least.

If you want a true resort, check out Sherkston Shores in Fort Erie, ON. Totally commerical but very clean and many amenities. Right over the border near Niagara Falls. Here is their site: http://www.sherkston.com. :D

Bon Echo definately is. We have a campout organized for August. I have a slide show of photos on the website at http://campadk.com/tearuptheottawavalley/

There have an area with hydro as well. If you are American then they will offer you electricity instead. :D
