Lake Lauzon ResortHow about this heat folks!!!! For those of you who have been begging for a hot summer, it's safe to say that you wishes have been fully granted! We may actually break heat records in many areas of our great country this summer! So it's now time to get out there and enjoy this beautiful weather.... but remember that hot and dry weather also increases the risk of forest fires.... so please be careful out there!

Before you head out, take some time to check our Camping tips and our Camping checklist to make sure you don't forget anything. We also have Trip planning tips to help you get started. And if you're towing an RV, check out our Towing tips and our RV tips pages. Note that our tips section also includes tips on how to start a campfire, tie knots and more. And when you're back from your trip, please remember to rate the campground you visited using our "5-point" rating system. As explained below, 78% of consumers trust other people's recommendations and that is even more true for holiday accommodation. To rate a campground, simply use our campground search engine to locate the campground (at the moment, we have 1500+ ratings and more than 400 reviews for our 2000+ campgrounds).

If you're in the market for an RV, check out our "RV shopping checklist" and our "Buying a used RV checklist". 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

"Camping log"

  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.

Upcoming Canadian RV shows
 
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.

Camping in style!!

Have you ever heard of "Glamping"? No.... well, you're not alone! "Glamping", which stands for "glamorous camping",started in Europe a decade ago. 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! At the moment, glamping is more popular in BC but it's slowly catching on in the rest of canada. Click here to view a map of Glamping spots in Canada.

Campground reviews
Summer House Park  (Miller Lake, ON)
In our 22 years of camping I have never left feeling so gouged. Although we are an adult "family" this campsite charges an extra, $20/adult/nite A whopping bill of $465 for 3 nites. The site next to us paid $700 for 2 weeks with younger children! I appealed to the owner, Jim, to work with me on the pricing but would not budge After a 3 hour drive and full campsites everywhere, we had no choice but to stay. Our kids arrived separately after 10 pm on the Friday, with no staff at gate, we could have snuck them in if we were dishonest, or lied that 2 that are 18 were actually 17,I pointed this........ Kelly Kirk  Erin
