Although the lazy days of summer are behind us, the opportunity for outdoor vacationing is still very present. Camping in the fall is awesome. The crowds are smaller, the searing heat of summer is gone, but warm days and cool nights arrive (perfect for sleeping). It’s also the perfect point of view to absorb the changing of the leaves as nature weaves one of her most spectacular seasonal sights. If you are planning on camping in Canada this fall, here are a few campgrounds you’ll want to check out.
7. La Mauricie National Park, Quebec
The tree-lined landscapes in La Mauricie National Park, located mid-way between Montreal and Quebec City, are a sight to behold in the autumn. It’s a tapestry of contrasts with the reds and golds of the changing leaves, against the vast forests of coniferous trees, maintaining their green as the year marches on. This park is popular with canoe campers and car campers alike, with the opportunities for outdoor leisure as vast as the open spaces that surround them. Looking for some panoramic views? Drive around the Ile-de-Pins, and stop along at the lookout points; hike the Solitaire Lake Trail or around the Gabet Lake Trail and pause for some serious scenery.
