We are embarking on a trip to the Canadian Maritime Provinces and I am remembering our trip to Alaska.
We did a lot of dry camping all over the place during that trip and I wonder if it is doable (allowed) during our upcoming trip.
I have researched the campings and provincial parks and know what we can do but just to pull off along a stream and enjoy the area is nice to.
I love to get some feedback from other adventurous campers.

Hello Adventurous: Boondocking not allowed in NS at all. Not sure about NB. NL totally wide open. Pop into the Canada Forum, should be able to hook you up to some sites of interest.

Wow that is a bummer!!! How about our friendly Walmart? I know that there are no Supercenters in Canada but a regular store will do.
Thanks for you input and I'll go look for the Canada Forum.

Adventurous..no super stores in Canada? now thats funny. (don't tell Edmonton that) Nova Scotia has passed a law to ban over night camping in "Big Box" parking lots. This they figure will direct more campers to Provincial and Private C/G's I personally haven't boondocked in any other provinces, so I'm not sure. Only province that I know is wide open for boondocking is Newfoundland.Maybe some one else here can help us out?

P.S.Wasn't trying to be rude but West Edmonton Mall is the largest mall in the World. West Edmonton Mall

Ellen,

Put brain into thinking about population density for a moment. NB & NS have quite a bit of crown land, PEI very little. Every place the Walmarts make their stop & park, spend money here policy so very visible they invite a fight from small campgrounds. So, act accoringly. PEI has some wild places, but go with care. I once went walking with my dogs on PEI and wound up on someone's woodlot & got well told off. He later apologized, I apologized for 'us' & believe it or not I run into this person on just about every trip to PEI. Parking by the stream is illegal in NS too.

All three of those provinces were among the first colonies on the continent. There are cow path roads to prove that. All of these I find very interesting. I wouldn't dream of going to those three provinces without some back roads cruising. But somebody is bound to have some 'interest' or 'ownership' in much of it. On PEI there seems to be a road every 1.6 miles (3km). Watch the PEI gov printed
maps for the 'scenic road' icon. I love these. & the fish icon.

Now the island of Newfoundland has less than 500,000 population, so of course there are places. But there is the grr by private campground owners too. Cgs tend to be priced lower too.

Instead of cow paths, you have logging roads. When driving these, watch the tracks of other wheeled vehicles. & look out if these suddenly narrow down to those of large quads (says one who once kept going - an adrenalin trip that one, especially over one bridge).

Remember, you are the visitor.

By that I ment the Walmart Supercenters.
According to their listing in the Rand McNally
road atlas there are no Supercenters or Sams stores in Canada.
The Supercenters are open 24/7 and usually a safe place to park.
Yes I have been to the Edmonton Mall and also the big mall in Toronto.

Thanks for every ones input.
