Travel to Canada and enjoy different cultural experiences, attend events that may include a stampede, a winter carnival or a jazz festival. The scenery will take your breath away and the people will make you welcome. Each of the 10 provinces is unique and offers something special to its visitors. The Yukon and Northwest Territories are exceptional and the best way to explore them is definitely from the front seat of an RV.
Campgrounds / Parks in Canada
There are many national parks, provincial parks and private campgrounds in Canada to choose from and camping spots may vary from the very basic and rustic wilderness site to one that is in an ultra posh resort with every amenity you can think you need or want. Visit Campgrounds of Canada (it’s free)
Highways / Roads in Canada
Highways are well maintained and well marked. Maps are available at most service stations and most towns and cities have a tourist information centre that will provide you with information about campgrounds, shopping, and local events.
The weather varies depending upon the area and time of the year you visit. Most RVers travel to Canada in the spring, summer and fall. However, in some parts of the country, specifically the south coast of BC many RVers spend the winter enjoying the temperate climate.
Shopping in Canada
Shopping is available everywhere and most products that are found in the United States are also found in Canada. The currency is the Canadian dollar and most merchants will exchange foreign monies at that days rate but it is advised that you visit a local bank to get the best rates or use an ATM machine, which you will find absolutely everywhere.
Wi-Fi in Canada
Wi-Fi is easy to find, especially in RV Parks, coffee shops, libraries or hotspots around the country.
Canada is Big!

Canada is diversified in its culture, history and geography and welcomes thousands of visitors each year and RVers will find it very easy to find their way around.
