Happy new yearWelcome to 2016!! We hope you had a great time during the holiday season and are ready to tackle the new year! For most of us, the green grass has turned into a white carpet. According to Jack Burnett, managing editor of the Old Farmer's Almanac, this winter should be five degrees colder than normal but with slightly less snowfall than average. The Almanac is also forecasting a spring that will feel like "a big swamp" (very rainy) and, wait for it, a summer that could be best-described as "the big sweat.". Less rain, more heat.... perfect for camping!!

Unless you're lucky enough to be camping year-round, you probably have winterized your RV by now (if not, check out our RV winterizing checklist). And if you're up for some winter camping, check out our Winter RVing tips, our Winter camping tips as well as our Winter camping checklist.

Camping Stoneham  (Stoneham, QC)
We stayed here for 1 week. The bathrooms were not too great, toilets blocked and even overflowed. The showers cost 25 cent per minute and my first shower was cold. The pool area was nice but the pools are not heated and my kids found it cold. Wonderful rivers all around, bring your small blow up boats and mattresses to float down the rivers. Great campsites by the river. The best campsites are for non-service sites(tents),they are big, shaded and right on the river. The best one seemed to be 37. As for the sites with 2 services, none were very private,they are small,the best one seemed to be 1........ Marlene      Québec

Parks Canada recently announced that they will double the number of its new "oTENTik" camping structures in national parks and other locations across the country this year! An "oTENTik" structure is basically a cross oTentik unit at Parks Canadabetween 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.
