Driving thru Montreal and Quebec

I am planning to drive and stay near Montreal and Quebec. It seems this is a route to get over to Nova Scotia. I will be traveling from the west of Canada. Are there better routes than going thru Montreal and Quebec? It seems like there is a lack of campgrounds if I stay south of Montreal and then head north. Does anyone have suggestions on coming from Renfrow, ON to Nova Scotia?

Thanks, Tom

Traffic in the Montreal area is quite bad specially because there is a lot of road and bridge repairs in the area.

Your best bet would be from Renfrew to drive on hyghway 17 to Ottawa then take 417 east towards Montreal. Then once you're in Québec road name changes to 40.

Continue around Vaudreuil Dorion where you will be able to take Highway 30 and cross the St. Lawrence River on a new bridge ( toll ) opened approx 18 months ago. Then continue on 30.

This new bridge is not shown on Microsoft street and trips but look a Google Maps you will see it.

If you wish to stay in the Montreal area, there is a '' camping '' ( more a parking area, but there are some sites with electric and water, and other sites without services but you have acces to a dump station, and water. From there you can cross to old Montreal using a ferry located right next to the camping. This campground is right next to the local marina and you have some sites with a view to downtown Montréal alongside the river.

For more informations : Sogerive Halte VR RV Longueuil | A Campground near Longueuil Quebec

Also from Montreal to Québec City, drive on highway 20 to the south shore of Québec, On the city of Lévis, there are 5 to 8 campgrounds close to the City.

Tom,

If you take the route I recommend you will cross the St. Lawrence River on the new bridge on highway 30 west of Montreal.With this route you won't have to cross the river with the Lafontaine tunnel.

This is the preferred route, avoiding the traffic which is bad on TC40 and QC 25. Also if you have a motorhome, most of them have large propane tanks which are not allowed in the tunnel. Propane tanks cannot exceed 43 lbs. A maximum of two 43 lbs tanks is allowed, but if like most MH you only have 1 tank but it contains more than 43 lbs, than it's not permitted in the tunnel.

Tom, that is excellent advice from jacmat. I traveled from Nova Scotia to Yellowknife, NT return last summer and route 30 south and west around Montreal is a long overdue God send. We stayed at the KOA in Renfrew both coming and going. There is a KOA in Quebec City just off route 20 and this was the one we also stayed coming and going. It is an easy jump from Quebec City to Renfrew. Enjoy your trip and we welcome you to Nova Scotia.
