Fall campingHere we are again at the end of another camping season. Most of us will remember this summer as scorching HOT. But now the geese are flying south and the leaves are slowly changing colors. Old man winter is on his way again and according to meteorologists, most of us can expect a colder winter than last year as well as more snow!

Unless you're lucky enough to be camping year-round, it's now time to winterize the RV. To help you with this process, we have put together a RV winterizing checklist. But if you're one of the lucky ones, check out our Winter RVing tips, our Winter camping tips as well as our Winter camping checklist. And for those of you interested in going to RV shows, click here to see a list of upcoming Canadian RV shows.

If you're in the market for an RV, click here to read about the various types (classes) of RVs available on the market. You can buy a "towable" RV or you can buy a "motorized" RV. You can have slideouts, AC, bunk beds.... or hundreds of other options. You can buy a 12 footer or you can buy a 45 footer. It all depends on your needs and to help you with your buying process, we have put together an "RV selection guide" as well as two checklists; our "RV shopping checklist" and our "Buying a used RV checklist". Print these and bring them with you on your next shopping tip!

And don't forget our free "Camping Classifieds" section if you have an RV or camping gear to sell.

Need help choosing a campround?

Check out our Campround reviews for ratings Click to view campground reviews & reviews made by campers just like you! We use a 5-point rating system allowing campers to rate a campground based on its location, services, campsites, recreation facilities and washrooms. And while you're reading up on some reviews, why not add your own for the campgrounds that you've recently visited. Whether you're a "weekend camper" or a "seasoned camper", your opinion counts and will be appreciated by fellow campers! Please note that we recently added two new features. One allows you to add photos to your campground reviews and the other one allows you to store personal notes with your reviews. Those notes can only be viewed by you and can be used to store information such as the date of visit, campsite # or any other information that you wish to keep about your visit. "Click here" to read existing reviews or to rate/review a campground.
 
Your own Camping Log

"Camping log"

  Another new feature we just added is the "camping log" which allows you to keep track on a map of the campgrounds that you have visited in the past! Each and every campground that you have visited (and reviewed on Camping-Canada) pops up with our Map icon icon on a Google map. Clicking on an icon brings up additional information about that specific campground including links to existing reviews as well as any personal notes (see "campground reviews" above) that you may have stored for that campground.

Upcoming Canadian RV shows
 
Parks Canada recently announced that they will double the number of its new oTentik unit at Parks Canada "oTENTik" camping structures in national parks and other locations across the country this year! An "oTENTik" structure is basically a crossbetween a tent and a cabin and is intended to add a degree of comfort to camping (see "Glamping" below). After rolling out a few dozen of the units in 2013, initially at La Mauricie National Park in Quebec, Parks Canada made 124 available across the country last year, mostly in national parks but also at a couple of national historic sites in B.C. This year the number of units will hit 238, said Francois Duclos, Parks Canada manager of visitor experience infrastructures and the rental cost ranges from $90-$120 a night for a unit that can accommodate six people.

Stove in a canStove in a can is a portable outdoor cooking kit that is perfect for camping and backpacking excursions! Each kit includes 4 fuel cells with approximately 1 hour of cooking time each cell. Virtually anything that can be cooked on a regular stove can be cooked on this! It uses a safe, water-resistant and non-explosive fuel source that can be stored indefinitely.Fuel cells are actually a food grade wax and wood shavings mixture that burns nice and hot. Each cell costs approximately $3 each and the stove kit (incl. 4 cells) sells for around $30 in most outdoors stores!
 

Camping in style!!

Have you ever heard of "Glamping"? No.... well, you're not alone! "Glamping", which stands for "glamorous camping",started in Europe a decade ago. No more kerosenelamp, no morDeluxe campinge heating a can of beans on a campfire! Hello solar lamps, bed, kitchen-range, comfy chairs.... all under a tent! Europeans refer to these places as "open air hotels". Now, it's starting to catch on in Canada! Some setup are simply large canvas tents with some furniture such as a chair and a bed while others offer more luxury. Prices range from under $100 for a single night with a cot, to around $1000 for four nights with a queen bed! At the moment, glamping is more popular in BC but it's slowly catching on in the rest of canada. Click here to view a map of Glamping spots in Canada.

Camping Plage Gagnon Beach  (Grand-Barachois, NB)
My wife and I recently stayed at Camping Plage Gagnon for 3 days. We were on an extended driving tour of the Maritime coastlines and booked at Gagnon for some extended relaxation. The park was very clean and well organized. We enjoyed the sands, rich fresh air and clear waters of the beach, great for reading, walking and wading. Interesting sea birds and great exposure to ocean front life. We played like kids on the huge inflated bounce pad, a new style work-out. We found the owners to be very friendly and accommodating and got good travel, entertainment and dining tips. Very genial considerin........ SouponTour  Thunder Bay    Ontario
