If you’re looking to get your nature fix this season by spending a few nights under the stars (or in the RV—that’s cool, too) here’s some inspiration from seven of the most outstandingly Canadian campsites in the country, with ocean views in the Maritimes, to riverside campfires in the heart of BC’s wine country, to historic petroglyph sites in Alberta. Oh, Canada, you so pretty. How many of these epic camping spots across Canada have you been to?Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park, AlbertaLocated about 100 kilometres southeast of Lethbridge, Alberta, Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park provides a glimpse into the culture of the Blackfoot tribe and other Canadian First Nations peoples that lived upon the land centuries years ago. There are thousands of paintings and carvings over 50 petroglyph sites across the park. Set up camp under a tree in the Milk River Valley so you can explore the artwork and hoodoos over multiple days. Bella Pacifica, Tofino, BCIf you’re lucky enough to snag a spot at Tofino’s Bella Pacifica, chances are you’ll never want to leave. The property offers a handful of oceanfront options for campervans and tents, so you can literally fall asleep to the sound of the Pacific ocean lapping against the shore. Goodbye, noise machine; hello, nature. Bella Pacifica is also conveniently located on the bike/walking pathway that takes you in and out of Tofino’s city centre.Meat Cove, Cape Breton, Nova ScotiaImagine waking to the sound of a fishing boat tolling somewhere in the distance. You open your tent and see the boat’s light in the morning haze, drifting toward the small inlet beneath the cliffs you’re seemingly perched upon. Frome somewhere behind you, the smell of seafood chowder wafts toward you. This sounds like a five-star experience for the super rich, but it’s actually just Meat Cove, a family campsite ideally located on the sloping glass banks above the Atlantic Ocean, and easily one of the country’s best kept secrets. The chowder hut? Yeah, that’s real too. Grundy Lake Provincial Park, Parry Sound, OntarioGrundy Lake Provincial Park is a haul from the GTA – about three hours without traffic from Toronto – but it’s worth it. Because of the distance, Grundy Lake is less crowded than more southern camping spots. Here, you’ll be hard pressed to find a site that isn’t quiet and peaceful. The surrounding nature with its many lakes, rolling hills and rocky terrain looks like a real life Group of Seven painting, one that you can pitch a tent in.Beaver Glen Campground, SaskatchewanIf your goal is to spot an elk, moose or a black bear this summer, Beaver Glen Campground located a 2.5-hour drive from Saskatoon in Prince Albert National Park is as good a place as any to do it. You can also cast for some lake trout (National Park fishing license required), go for a hike, or just sit by the fire and listen to the lack of traffic. Kettle River Recreation Area, BCThe Okanagan is home to some incredible hotels and bed and breakfasts (not to mention wineries), but camping in this region can be just as memorable. At Kettle River Recreation Area you can paddle under trestle bridges or bike on top of them, hike through the ponderosa pine forests of the Okanagan, lazily float down a river in a tube or spend an afternoon fishing. It’s a popular area for hikers, runners and cyclists, so bring your sports equipment of choice. Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland Gros Morne National Park on the West Coast of Newfoundland is a special place, but you don’t need to take our word for it as UNESCO has named it a world heritage site. Its peaks and valleys, rivers and ponds are home to a variety of wildlife including foxes, lynx, moose, otters, blackbears, caribou, and even seals and whales off the coast. The park is also host to many camping options, including some private sites as well as five campsites overseen by Parks Canada.
