Spring is here!Summer is HERE!! We finally made it to summer after a long and hard winter and what seemed like a very short spring! Flooding was a major issue throughout Canada and even North America this year. Many campgrounds were so wet due to floodings that they had to push their opening date! But by now, everybody seems to be back in business and since meteorologists claim that most of us will have a wet summer this year, get out there every chance you get before summer is over!

If you haven't "de-winterized" your RV yet, here's a "Spring checklist" that you can use to make sure that your RV is "ready to roll". If you're in the market for an RV, check out our "RV shopping checklist" and our "Buying a used RV checklist". Yo can print these checklists and bring them with you at the RV show or on on your next shopping tip! Also, if you want to read about the various types (classes) of RVs available on the market, click here.

And don't forget, if you have any camping items to sell, you can sell them (for free) in our "Classifieds" section.

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

"CampLog"

  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.

Poison Ivy Poison Ivy Poison Oak Poison Tumac Poison ivy typically grows as a vine or shrub, and it can be found throughout much of North America. Poison ivy plants typically have leaf arrangements that are clustered in groups of three leaflets. The plant may have yellow or green flowers, and white to green-yellow berries, depending on the season. Poison oak also grows as a vine or shrub and is found in the western United States and British Columbia. It has a leaf arrangement similar to poison ivy. Poison sumac on the other hand, grows as a shrub or small tree and is only found in eastern/southeastern United States. When infected by one of these, you get a rash within 12-72 hours. Skin may become red, swollen and/or itchy. Rash usually appears bumpy, streaky and linear. Fluid may discharge from blisters but isn't contagious. Within 20-30 minutes of exposure, rinse the affected area with lots of warm water to remove the oily plant resin. You can also use soap or rubbing alcohol to help with the resin removal. The rash slowly improves and disappears after one to three weeks in most individuals. For more information, click here.

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.

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!

Camping Plage Gagnon Beach  (Grand-Barachois, NB)
The whole place is in great shape. This is my second year out to Gagnon Beach and I will defiantly go back as a season renter next year. Last summer the place looked like it could use a refresh and this summer it clearly got one. All of the buildings are in great shape, new amenities have been added in and there is a ton of fun stuff to do. Music on some nights, Bingo and dances for kids and adults. For you outdoorsy people, Basketball, Yoga on the beach, Beach Vollyball, Playgrounds, bouncing pillow, a swimming pool and more. The whole place is kept in great condition. I met the owner........ Taylor  Toronto    Ontario
