Trip to New Brunswick and PEI this fall

Unread postby ldreid on Tue Aug 29, 2017 6:35 am

My husband and I are taking motor home from near Toronto to east coast this fall. We don't want to stay in campgrounds every night esp. when travelling.
Some questions:
Are rest areas on 401 safe to stay at.
We want to stay a few nights in Faundy national park but not towing. Will just have bikes. What campground would be best there -unit is 34 ft.
Any other suggestions greatly appreciated.

Excellent place to visit.
We travelled across Canada to PEI and some nights we stayed in church parking lots. Never had any issues and we made sure not to stay on a Saturday so as to interfere with the Sunday morning traffic.
We have stayed in rest areas in the US, but did not stay on 401.
When we got to PEI we stayed in Charlottetown and rented a car for a week and toured the whole island from there.
We also had bikes for that trip and had a 27' Class C

Enjoy and safe travels.

This is my backyard.

Yes, you can boondock. There are lots of places in QC, both along the road and when close to Gaspe in town picnic areas, which are really cgs.

Do visit Forillion National Park, Perce Rock.....

Acadian Historical Village, NB.

Yes, I've boondocked in NB as well as in cgs. Remember most cgs close on Thanksgiving. Yes, you can stay in a cg Oct 8 night, but have to move on Oct. 9. Unless, it is a town cg. Once I was on the road in late Oct. I bought some goods at an NB store and asked. It turned out that there was a Frederiction cg open because some folks worked in that city but had their home residence elsewhere.

PEI has lots of cgs, quite nice. To be sure it is a 4 hour drive on route 2 from the eastern tip to the western tip (north), but there is a lot of great scenery and places to visit all around the Island.

All of The Maritimes are quite historic.

If you've got specific questions, ask away.

& make sure to get your visitors guides and provincial maps. Provincial maps have features that commercial maps don't have.
