Camping in Canada

Canada is an immense country and the motorhome is an ideal way to travel around and enjoy the nature and exceptional wilderness.

A motorhome trip in Canada involves good preparation of budget, route, itinerary and especially campsites for the night after a long day's drive and adventure.
The country is full of places to park your vehicle for the night varying in price and style from well equipped, "luxury" campsites to more rustic, basic sites.
However, the motorhome is a very popular way to holiday in Canada, so it is better to be well informed and book ahead for campsites, especially for those in national parks.

General camping information

In terms of camping infrastructure, Canada really is the champion! Many campsites are available from mid-May to mid-October and they are very well equipped and maintained. Generally they are closed out of season.

Wild camping outside of official campsites is possible in Canada. However, it is a good idea to know a little about the place you want to camp so that you can be well prepared.
