Wolf -- I hope you are talking about camping next season, though this morning's rain does suggest how the weather has changed the last few years!

Ahhhh, dreams!! I've collected these off the internet and wish I could use them more:

Parks Canada:

Travel Ontario (w links for each province):

Welcome to Ontario Parks: -- Select 'Your Parks.' To see maps search on 'Parks by Region.'

Camping in Canada:

Roy's Canadian Camping Guide:

Great Canadian Parks:

Canada Towing (requirements):

Also, do a Google search on Lake Superior Circle Tour -- too many ideas to list here...

Toronto to Calgary

The distance between Toronto and Calgary is a little more than 3400 kilometres - whether you go through the U.S. or Canada. The U.S. route is likely faster - more 4 lane highways. The Canadian route will be slower but the north shore of Lake Superior is a definite highlight.

If you decide to take the northern route make sure i tis paved before you go.When I went through in 1990 they were repaving about 200 miles of highway.The gravel deatroyed my rear window and took all paint off my trunk lid. No place for an Airstream.It was also a very winding and hilly route.

I do appreciate all the links, thank you so much!
I will be posting with more questions as our "tour date" approaches, and as we plan some more!
