Fair warning for all those wish to avoid the inevitable disaster...

Feeble minivan towing humongous Airstream will be leaving Ontario in the first week of August. Overnight for a couple of nights at Glimmerglass SP in Upstate NY then onto Plymouth, Mass for a week. Then it's north to Quebec City (ooh la la!) for four nights then south west to Gananoque ON, in the 1000 Island region. The feeble minivan will most likely be staying north of the border whilst there so you NY folks can sleep soundly in your beds. Then it's home to SW Ontario - all in all about 18 days.

Hide now while you can!

No. 13, we are lucky to live in a very beautiful region (the Kootenays), with lots of camping nearby. We try to go a bit further than an hour from home, as otherwise it hardly seems worth the hassle of hitching up. On the other hand, if an hour would get us to a nice site on the Pacific Ocean, we'd probably do that. A lot depends on being retired. We generally do our shorter trips in mid-week. Except for July-August, you can really cut down on the crowds.

Protagonist-- we take our canoe with us when camping in this part of the world. We watch for motorboat wakes, sudden mountain storms, rocks, "sweepers" (fallen logs) and the like. A couple of times we've been surprised by bears by the shore. But 'gators would put a whole new twist on the small tippy boat experience!

(make sure you pack your warm clothes - required for those traveling to Newfoundland in July/August. But as it looks like you might be there until Oct...snow is possible.)

We are leaving Indiana on the 4th of July for an 18-day-trip to Arches, Bryce and the Grand Canyon. Two adults and two 15-year-old daughters will be camping in our 22-foot FB Bambi Sport. We know it will be hot but this was the only time we could all get away for this length of time. Any recommendations for activities and must-see sights?

Have a great trip! If you don't have reservations for camping, I would recommend them before you leave as the parks get pretty busy this time of year.

Places we've stayed and would recommend, if you don't already have revs.:

Ruby's Inn near Bryce Canyon NP. A nice wooded setting, and the park shuttle bus stops there. Fortunately you're up high enough there that the nights should be cool.

Horsethief CG near Arches. This is a BLM campground. No revs, but they don't fill up often and it is very inexpensive. No hookups. I forget if there is water at the site, so fill up your tank before you go and bring some jerry cans, just in case. If is very close to Deadhorse Point State Park. This point has got truly unforgetable views. There are also some nice RV parks in and close to town: your Woodalls/Good Sam guide should list them, or just google on-line. It will be difficult to get a site within Arches NP. There is a big information centre in Moab, with very helpful info on camping, hiking, one-day river trips, and so on. We always try to stop for pizza at Zax!

We've not RVed at the GC-- if you go to the North Rim, however, the nights should be fairly cool there.

Just make sure to pack a lot of sunscreen, wear hats, and take more water on hikes than you think you need.

What a great trip!

Thank you for this information! We are staying at Ruby's for several nights. I am glad to hear it is cooler there. We are looking forward to their Wednesday night rodeo. We are going on a one day whitewater trip while in Moab and a smooth-water trip at the Grand Canyon. Anything water-related to help beat the heat! We were going to stay at an Airstream only park called Shooting Star but it closed and kept our deposit.
