Good places to camp in Canada with a 43’ diesel pusher

I just recently traded in my 40’ for a 43’ coach. I want to plan trip from Ontario Canada to the east coast. (PEI,NS and maybe NFLD). Looking for some suggestions on where to camp for a few days at a time. My concerns are finding places to accommodate a Large 43’ diesel pusher with 50 amp services. Also maybe even some suggestions on things to do, site seeing, great places to eat etc.ect. Can anyone shed some light. I would like to start booking sites and so on for next July. Obviously Covid 19 can change everything but I’m hoping things clear up by then ?? I know it’s early but I struggled a little this year already getting good sites with 50 amp services. Just want to get working on a itinerary !

Finding 50 amp sites in PEI,NS and NFLD, can be tough. We boondocked the entire trip in NS and NFLD. In PEI we used Harvest Host but never had a need for 50a. If you have a res fridge you may need to depend on your gen or 30amp Solar is difficult with the "Gray Foggy Days" in NFLD.

Why do you need 50A? WalMart sells a $15 ($20 Canadian) 50A to 30A adapter.
This post is my opinion, worth what you paid for it.

Don’t need 50 amp and I have all the adapters but would prefer it. It will be July when we go and likely very hot. May need to run all 3 air conditioners and would rather not run gen set.

50amp will be a tough find wherever you go. 30a will be the norm. You may even need to get by with 20a. Our 5er is also 50a but we know how to get by on 20a. It is called very frugal power management. If it is hot ALL 120VAC breakers are turned off EXCEPT the A/C. With 30a it is pretty much business as usual except maybe water heater on propane & possibly fridge too.

Subject to Covid 19, next year we are planning a return to The Maritimes & Newfoundland. Looking at 6 weeks plus for Newfoundland. Plenty of really nice provincial parks however amenities such as power are light. It is not like US resort areas.

We live next to the jellystone rv park in Kingston Nova Scotia.

They should be able to accommodate you.

As others have posted, 30 amps is the norm in Canada. I know in the Western Provinces, every site we've stayed at had 30 amps max.
