Which state and which route? Many campgrounds close in October.

Your traveling kind of late in the year to enjoy this part of the great country of ours & Canada.
Here is a thread of information about places to see and campgrounds in N.B.,N.S. & P.E.I.
Hope to make one last trip of many we have had with groups of people, we have taken, so much to see and its not that big of an area.
Enjoy your trip there's much to see in this area as the rest of our great U.S.A.

Unless a campground is open thru the winter, for the most part, campgrounds in this part of the country roll up the sidewalks after Columbus day weekend.

Are you just traveling thru or do you have a certain destination in mind? If you're going thru NH, I just did a search on RV Campgrounds, RV Camping, RV Rentals, RV Parks, RV Resorts - Woodalls for NH campgrounds "open all year" and they listed 16.

This is a link to a list campgrounds in NS.
Campground Owners Association of Nova Scotia - Welcome
I believe the latest you'll find a CG open is Oct. 15th after that it's just about zilch.
From then on you'd have to use the Wally's and other parking lots. Propane; water and dumping tanks wouldn't be a problem, there are laundromats so it's do able but a little inconvenient at times. We did a one week tour of Southern NS in Nov 2006 and enjoyed it.

Cheers
Willey

Thank you for all the responses, we may rethink our plans. Now we're thinking of taking the MH to Glacier and back home in September. In October/November we'll most likely fly to the N.E. and tour the states and Canada via rental car and motel due to possible bad weather. Our intent is to tour this part of the world and to especially witness the fall colors.

The fall colors start to migrate from North to South starting in September. The columbus day weekend is usually the last weekend in Northern New England. The colors will disappear quickly. The colors in southern New England MA, CT, RI will almost be gone (past peak) in the final 2 weeks of October In November all the colors will be gone.

Geez Willynojob,Didn't mean to scare you away. Vacationland,(MAINE) values your time here. The weather is sill wonderfull in the fall. The reason most camgrounds close is because most campers with children are back in school and a frost is always possible. Do think again about coming up. I'm sure we can find plenty of places for you stay. You will be right in the middle of "FAIR" season. Plenty of state fairs to attend.

This is Willynojob's other half to explain the real dilemma. Willy goes deer hunting every year for two weeks in October with his sons, depending on opening day, anywhere from the 9th to the end of the month. This year it's the 15th. I am lobbying for the NS/NE trip to see the fall colors and Willy wants to see the same terrain not necessarily during the fall. I've suggested we RV back late Sept. early Oct and he fly home for hunting. I would be perfectly content doing the things I normally have to pull his teeth to do while he's getting his manly fix.

It isn't too bad here in NS, I live in town and the deer parade through my yard most every morning and evening. There was a bear at the back of the neighbors property a few days back must be hanging around as the dogs get riled up occasionally.

Cheers

3 years ago, on a car trip around Nova Scotia, we stumbled on a great annual festival:

Celtic Colours International Festival - Home page

We recently purchased a coach and are planning our first post retirement adventure for Fall 2012. Celtic Colours will be the end of our northward journey and the beginning of our pursuit to follow the Fall colors southbound as they peak.

The trip 3 years ago (early October) saw daytime temperatures into the 60's and low 70's, even that far north. We weren't paying any attention to campgrounds (forgive us, it was BC - Before Coach). I read somewhere that Nova Scotia had banned RV parking in anything other than a commercial campground (i.e., no Walmart, etc. parking allowed). Not sure if that's still in effect.

Take care,
Stu & Cindy

Now we're thinking of taking the MH to Glacier and back home in September.
Good news and bad news ....
Good news.... Glacier national park is one of the prettiest places you can go see...
Bad news...... in September, Glacier will be closed due to snow....
When you go to Nova Scotia look up ''Five Islands Camp Ground''. It is on the Bay of Fundi and you can watch the tide change 55 feet on each turn. On high tide the water is breaking right under your coach and on low tide you can not see the ocean at all. ...... Heck of a sight.
