Southeast Canada suggestions

Hi all!

Thinking DH would love to take TT to Canada versus our southern states. Looking for a southeast CG destination. We live 40 miles north of Cincinnati, OH and will drive up to 15 hours, over 2 days. We have 9 or 10 days and hoping for full week at our destination. I've been to Niagara Falls years ago and would like to try another place.

Also, what are requirements to cross and re-cross border? Birth Certificates or Passports?

Thanks,

Kim

Not sure for US to Canada crossing, but even since 9/11, the US requires a passport for Canadians entering the US by road...so I would suspect the same applies if USers want to come to Canada!

Passport.
Before you plan to cross you may also want to check the food restrictions.
I think some meats, fruits, veggies etc can not be imported.
Also, NO GUNS. Not trying to start anything, just pointing out that this is an issue where border guards are VERY strict and you don't want to even think of the hassle.

As for destinations check out http://www.ontarioparks.com/ for a list of some great Provincial Parks.
As for city destinations, Ottawa, Kingston, Toronto (Bronte Creek PP close by).
If you are interested in going North you could look at Algonquin PP or any number of other parks in the (Near North) from the website.

Passports needed... be ready for some steep fuel prices in Canada. Right now I am paying $5.30 for a US gallon.

Yes leave your guns at home.. self defense with a firearm is NOT legal in Canada.

Passport is required for entry to US. That applies to US and Canadian citizens.

also - to restate - NO guns into Canada.

I hear they don't want you to bring your guns to Canada! Almost as dangerous is beef and firewood.

Besides Algonquin Park (which is north of Toronto), and if you want to experience a different section of Northern Ontario, I suggest Neys Provincial Park. It's on the north shore of lake Superior, right on the shore. A very scenic area. For you to get there, take I-75 north and cross at Sault Ste Marie, then hwy 17 from there. Mid-July to late August would be good weather wise.

If you want to try Southwestern Ontario (closer for you) I have 3 suggestions. The Pinery Provincial Park, Inverhuron Provincial Park and MacGregor Provincial Park. Pinery has lots of bike trails, a nice beach for swimming and many other activities including canoe rentals, Inverhuron has a beautiful beach for swimming, but not a lot else, and MacGregor has bike trails and nature walks, but the beach is only so-so for swimming. All these parks are along the Lake Huron shoreline.

I should add, to get to these, you would cross over at Port Huron Mich.

You may want to explore and camp in the Bruce Peninsula. Your best bet there is a private CG called Summer House Park. There is a National Park in the Bruce Peninsula that is boondocking only, and I think 25 feet is about the longest TT they can accommodate.
