Find RV parks and campgrounds in Ontario that can be your gateways for exploring Canadian province famous for its Niagara Falls, archipelago of Thousand Islands and numerous nature parks...
Ontario is the most populous province among the ten making the country.
In this province you can find the nation's capital city, Ottawa and also the most populous city, Toronto.
Interestingly, the metropolitan area of the capital includes also Gatineau located across the Ottawa River in the province of Quebec.
Symbolically this expresses a compromise made by two most populous and powerful provinces and two biggest Canadian cities – Toronto and Montreal fighting for the political dominance in the country.
Obviously number one destination in Ontario is the Niagara Escarpment including the famous Niagara Falls but also Bruce Peninsula National Park, Point Pelee, Georgian Bay Island National Park which consists of 63 small islands, Pukaskwa and the Thousand Islands. Visiting Niagara Falls do not forget to take a ride on the legendary Maid of the Mist; also consider visiting nearby picturesque small city Niagara on the Lake.
And this is a breathtaking helicopter tour of the area of Thousand Islands (Must-to-see)
Thousand Islands is an archipelago of more than 1800 islands stretching along the waters of St. Lawrence River near an old capital of Canada – Kingston. Taking the Thousand Islands cruise seems to be one of “must-to-do” when in Ontario and it will certainly offer unforgettable memories. One of numerous attractions is the Boldt Castle located on the Heart Island. It is a heartbreaking story, the castle was built by George Boldt for his wife, but just shortly before an opening it was abandoned due to the death of his wife in 1904.
If you want a break from the outdoors, you can go shopping and sightseeing to Ottawa, visit the Canadian Science and Technology Museum, Canadian War Museum, Museum of Civilization and the Canadian Museum of Nature.

Because of these news rules, people may find it easier to plan a camping trip to Canada campgrounds during the camping season.
Because some people have made reservations and then not shown up on the scheduled dates, campgrounds were losing money and people who really wanted a campsite were turned away.
Whether you want to stay at beach camping parks or other camping parks, you can make a reservation but beware, if you do not show up, you will receive a shock.
Penalties will be assessed against you ranging anywhere from ten percent up to fifty percent of the cost for not showing up or canceling at the last possible minute.
In other words, if you book a campsite six months ahead of time, and cancel two days before you are to settle in, you will receive a fifty percent penalty cost for this mishap.
Some directory sites will explain this in more depth, but the basic knowledge will help you when booking an early reservation. This new policy went into affect in the year 2005. I have never heard of any US parks doing this, but then I always show up. You may wish to make a reservation, but may sure you have every intention on keeping the campsite or you will pay percentage penalty.
Look in the directory of Ontario campground parks and find a campground that fits your need. The campgrounds up in that area are beautiful during the year and many people enjoy the area wilderness. Some campers even go during the hunting months so they can campout and do some camping while staying in Canada.
Please keep in mind the new policies and when you make reservations, discuss the cancellation cost and time frames for doing so.
