Right on B,

How long are you willing to drive? how long do you want to camp? Since your driving up from the B dot, Quebec would be closest, or you could follow the coast up into New Brunswick and check out Fundy Nat'l park, where the have the highest tides in the world and is one of Canadas best for camping. In my home provience of Ontario, whci is a solid road trip, Algonquin is best largest and best known. Canoe routes are extensive and camping is as close to the wild as possible on managed facilities. one of my favorites is Killarny Provincial Park, on the Georgian Bay coast. Hiking here is amazing and challanging. and they have a fish n chips thats famous for taste and freshness in the small jump in town of Killarney. Good choice, If its one thing worth to visit in Canada its the camping spots. here are a couple likes, the 2nd is Qubec specific.

Hey Brian!

There are some really nice places to go camping just north of Montreal. The area is called the Laurentians, and there are plenty of places to camp out. Mont Tremblant is a popular destination that offers many activities as well as camping http://www.out-there.com/trm11lnd.htm. I'd stick to Mont Tremblant Park for camping because the others seem to be of day use only. Also, Morin Heights offers campgrounds for 25$/night, and they're close to water slides http://www.parcaquatique.com/page.asp?intNodeID=9044.

A good place to get campgrounds anywhere in Canada is the following site: http://www.koa.com/where/canada.htm. There are plenty of campgrounds in Quebec and Ontario, which are the closest to Boston.

Good luck planning your trip!
