First Time Traveling Through Canada.

We know the rules for travel in Canada the biggest one being fire arms...... Plus we have no pets

We are starting in the Northwest of the USA and going along the boarder (in the US) and crossing into Canada at Sault Ste Marie taken Canada 17/417 to the east (is there away around Ottawa?) continuing to 417/40 to Montreal (I see 549/20 around Montreal) to 15/10/55 then back to the states.....

What I would like to know is there Camping, and Fuel along the way? Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks LeeB

When are you planning to travel? You may find some campgrounds shut down for the season after September 15. Fuel is readily available, that is a major route.

Canadians love to camp. You won't have a problem finding a place to stay. Same with fuel. It is recommended that in long stretches you drive on the top half of your tank so you're not scrambling at the last minute to find fuel. Have a good trip!

Ottawa is a pretty city with the river and the canal system. It is where our Canadian government sits with the Parliament buildings. The Byward Market and the many museums make Ottawa a worthwhile stopover. Several provincial parks are close by..Voyageur is on your way to Montreal. Google Ottawa to find out more, but it really should not be missed. There are some private parks in Ottawa to camp in. Don't rush your trip and have a great time.

Ditto on Ottawa. As the seat of the Federal Gov., this is a very pretty city with many museums, the Mint, Government Buildings etc. Certainly worth a couple of days. Besides, compared to many American cities, Ottawa is fairly small, 800,000.

Would highly recommend Quebec City if you can extend your trip. A really neat place, feels like Europe. We stayed in a CG in Levis and took the ferry across to old Quebec City.

I just returned from Canada. Visiting Niagara Falls and the surrounding area. Gas/diesel is easily available. I found nowhere to get metered propane for my motorhome. All the propane was for filling bottles only. Even the big campgrounds like Jellystone and KOA either did not sell propane and if they did it was only to fill bottles. I was very careful with use and filled when I got back in the US. hummm--go figure.

Don't worry about going through Ottawa just skip rush hour like any city. As folks have said, interesting place to stop for a day or two.

I think you must have been looking in the wrong places. Anywhere there's taxis, there's propane motor fuel and metered pumps.

There's several in the Niagara Falls area.
