Nova Scotia in 2013 - Where to Camp?

We are making our way from Texas to Nova Scotia next summer (2013) and would like to hear from you guys regarding a good place to stay for 3 weeks.

Our class A, (28,000 pounds), is 37 feet long with 2 slide-outs; and we will be pulling a motorcycle/trailer which is 13 feet long.

In addition to full hook-up, WiFi and shade are important to us. Cable or Air TV would be a bonus.

Thanks for your thoughts!

Although I am from New Brunswick right next to Nova Scotia, I would be happy to recommend some campgrounds and attractions in this part of Canada. We have traveled and RV'ed in Nova Scotia for many years. If you could give us some idea of what is on your to do list, I can give you further information. This is one of the most beautiful parts of Canada. Don't miss Prince Edward Island if you are coming this way. Welcome to the Maritimes.

Sorry to but in

We are also planning for August September, Dallas via maybe 81 to Nova Scotia then back via Boston, New York, Washington
We have travelled as far north as Boston via the outer banks which was fantastic. This time we will have adult children for the first 2 weeks and then friends from Australia for maybe Nova Scotia but definitely Boston
We will be following this thread closely.
Maybe it should be in crossroads forum

Hi I am originally from Nova Scotia and now living in Florida. My wife and I have been going to Nova Scotia for the summer for the past 4 years with our motor home. I will help you out with some campgrounds but would like to know what part of the province you would like to stay in . I personally would stay in parks in several different parts rather than stay in one park the whole time.There is a lot to see and I hope you enjoy your trip....Alan

We haven't started researching yet. So not a clue

It's a fair drive from Dallas and we have 8 weeks total Dallas to Dallas. We have to allocate maybe 10 days to Boston / Cape Cod. I would think a week to 2 weeks in NS would be about it.

Too much to do in NS unless you move about in you time there. I also second the see Prince Edward Island idea and especially the "Anne of Green Gables" park. Also hi on our memories lists was our time in the north of Cape Breton Island and the historic sites located there; Marconi's Radio station is one such item.

Too easy to lose a month there just wanderlooking.

We live in the beautiful Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia which is pretty central to the province. We are more than pleased to provide any info that we can and also be more than pleased to meet you at some point during your tour.

WE went to NS, PEI,& NB this past summer and the time there was to short. One of the things we were unhappy about was not allowing time to travel by ferry to New Foundland/Labrador. Doing that would mean at the very least another 2 weeks or more.
There were many well equipt and well maintained parks throughout, you will have no problem finding one. Our maybe I should have said several.
There is an 8 mile long bridge that you can take to get on to PEI that will cost you $60 if you are towing to get off the island. We decided to spend the $125 and take the ferry. It allowed us to save 100 miles travel @ 8MPG the savings paid for the ferrys extra cost and gave us a nice boat ride.
Don't miss Peggys Cove, nearby Halifax, and The Bay of Fundy and its high tide effects are a must. We stayed at the Bay of Fundy Park and could have spent a few more days there!

We too will be traveling to NS in 2013. so I will be watching this post closely. Is June to early to visit? We will be coming from florida, but going in to Canada around the Great Lakes and over to NS. Please post areas to see and places to camp. We make good tourists and like to hike.
Looks like a lot of us heading that way.)

Thanks Tom

Akibase...thanks for your comments. My simple question has provoked at lot more thinking about our visit. I need to do a lot more before asking any more questions. It's beginning to look like our visit will now include all the Maritimes; except maybe Labrador. As soon as I have a more complete plan I'll be back to ask for help with the details! Again Thanks!
