When we hit the road in our van, we try to overnight in sanctioned places as much as possible. In eastern Canada, some regions are very welcoming to van and RV travellers, while others are downright hostile. Luckily, we have found Quebec and Newfoundland to offer some amazing places for vans and RVs to stay the night. Between free municipal RV stops to paid provincial and national campgrounds, we share some our favourite places for overlanding in eastern Canada in our microcamper van.
Killarney Provincial Park is a gem of a wilderness park in central Ontario, near the northern shore of Georgian Bay, nestled in the Canadian Shield near the white quartzite hills of the La Cloche mountain range. While most of the park is in-land (not on Georgian Bay) it encompasses countless crystal-clear lakes joined by hiking trails and canoe routes. The park offers amazing camping at George Lake Campground, along the shore of George Lake, and backcountry camping accessible by day hiking, backpacking and canoe.
