Canada camping ground recommendations for a family of 6.

Jump to last reply

I am starting a new topic as this Australian family living in BC for a year and would like people to recommend campgrounds/trailer parks they have stayed in that they love.
Our itinerary for a possible 5-6 weeks is not set yet as we will design it around good camp grounds in the areas we want to see.

We are not experienced campers but are thinking about buying a tent trailer (we have seen one for sale locally..) so that we can keep the costs down when travellingwith 4 kids.

I have read some reviews from the KOA and tripadvisor sites but are keen for opinions on this forum on campgrounds that have:
Clean, well maintained facilities
Decent sized sites (not 21x40 as i saw on one RV park site.. and the reviews were NOT good)
Quiet (ish)
Helpful staff
Reasonably close to attractions
Other bonuses like a pool, wifi, laundry, BBQ, picnic tables, etc

The places we are thinking about driving to or close to (not in any particular order) are

Banff, Calgary, Clearwater Wells (? waterfalls) Winnipeg, somewhere in Saskatchewan, might head up to Thompson to catch the train to Churchill, Ontario (not sure where here as we will be heading for Niagara Falls) Maybe Quebec, then back through the US. Not sure of route here at all.. Maine, Minnesota, North Dakota, No clue now.

Any rave recommendations would be greatly appreciated..! Thanks..
