6 perfect Canadian destinations for your family’s summer vacation

The family RV trip is a popular pastime for a reason. It’s a fun and comfy travel option for all ages, but can still get you outside your comfort zone (if you want). Where will you go this summer? Here are the six best Canadian destinations for family summer vacations:

Mactaquac Provincial Park, New Brunswick

This 1,300-acre woodland recreation hub along the scenic Saint John River offers endless activities. And we mean endless. From the beaver pond nature reserve to the ropes course, it’s a family-wide win. Rent a sailboat, go fishing, have a picnic or make time for a round of golf.

Muskoka, Ontario

Carve out your own temporary home in cottage country. Heaven for motorhome renters and owners, most campgrounds come with family-friendly amenities like playgrounds, mini-golf, horseshoes, snack bars, swimming pools, and boat rentals. The best part? You’ll meet fellow road-warriors and forge new friendships while you splash around in the freshwater lakes.

Sandbanks Provincial Park, Ontario

True to its name, this park boasts beaches and white sand dunes. You can enjoy sailing, windsurfing and other watersports. For those of legal age, keep an eye out for the world-class wineries nearby. Lake Ontario makes for a serene background, which you can enjoy while the park’s event programming keeps the kids happy.

Badlands, Alberta

Dinosaur Provincial Park–need we say more? Take a trip to 80 Million BC this summer in a fossil-ridden educational escape. Hike though Utah-esque canyons, see dinosaur bones at the Royal Tyrrell Museum, or catch a helicopter tour. You won’t believe your eyes, and you’ll never forget this family experience.

Banff National Park, Alberta

Lake Louise is nestled among the awe-inspiring Rocky Mountains, and for many, it’s one of the most beautiful places in Canada. When you aren’t driving, you can easily fill up your days hiking, boating, fishing and rock climbing. For the refined RVer, top restaurants, shopping, and hot springs are a must. Whatever you do, make sure you check out the many scenic drives in the area.

Vancouver Island, British Columbia

Pacific Rim National Park Reserve is 500 square kilometres of dense rainforest, located on the largest island off North America’s west coast. Rich with First Nation history, bald eagles and whale watching, get lost in the old growth redwoods, go surfing in Tofino, and experience untouched BC wilderness.
