Hi Lyndon ... you're running one of our favorite routes!

Bypassing Toronto and its traffic is one of the smartest things you'll ever do!

Chutes Provincial park, at Massey, is the only provincial park on Highway 17 between Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie ... and is an nice overnight stop!

At Montreal, are you going to run up 40 or cross over the river, and use Route 20? If you're going to go on Route 20 ... you'll need to take the Champlain Bridge instead of the tunnel, because they don't allow propane bottles through the tunnel.

It takes longer to run from Montreal to Quebec City on 40, than on 20 ... but it's a lot less nerve racking.

Make sure you spend a few nights in Quebec City. We've camped at the Quebec City KOA (which is really across the St. Lawrence seaway, south, from Quebec City, in St Nicolas) ... or better yet, stay at Camping Municipal Beauport, just northeast of the old walled part of Quebec City in Beauport, Quebec.

Camping Municipal Beauport is close to the Montmorency Falls ... which is really a site to see.

Lots of neat sights in the old walled city ... and make sure you eat at the some of the outdoor restaurants on the Grande Allee. Our favorite is the Au Petit Coin Breton.

Logical continuation from there is to arc into New Brunswick, at Edmundston ... and into the Atlantic provinces.

Where are you planning on going from there?

In Quebec province, everything will be in French and only in French. No sign, no menu, no nothing will be in English.

Most of the people there, however, are friendly to English speaking folks. Pam is fairly fluent in French ... enough to get us by. I just grunt and don't smile, which makes everyone think I'm a local.

One warning .... pets are not allowed to enter any of Quebec's provincial parks ... not even allowed in the campgrounds ... so we've always steered clear of Quebec's provincial parks.

Interestingly enough, however, pets are allowed in all of Quebec's national parks ...

Canada Trip

Lyndon,
Chutes P.P. is very nice. You may want to consider Mississagi P.P. or Fairbanks.P.P. Not as close to the Hwy as Chutes.
A wonderful route would be the "Deer Trail" ,a loop that would add about 40 miles to your journey but incredible scenery. From Iron Bridge, to Elliot Lake you would follow beautiful fall colours along the Little White River. Mississagi P.P. is on that route.
I once lived on land adjacent to Chutes P.P. and know Ontario well. If you need any info for Ontario to Quebec. just email me.
You picked the most beautiful time of year. Good Luck.
Ghislaine.

Canada trip

Hi Lyndon.
If you consider driving out of highways, route 138 on northshore of St-Laurent River, or route 132 on southshore, would give you some views of Quebec's typical french villages between Montreal and Quebec.
From Quebec, a few miles east of Montmorency Falls, Charlevoix region is very attractive and scenic. Specially Baie-St-Paul village and surroundings. From there, it's possible to ferry toward southshore for route to New Brunswick.
Have a good trip.

Ontario Portion

Hi Lyndon, if you're coming down 17, you're gonna pass right by me in Whitefish Ont. We're about 2-1/2 hours east of Sault Ste Marie.
about 25 minutes from Sudbury. There's a great little park 3 minutes from us called Centennial park, showers, washrooms, etc.
We're actually on Regional road 55, but it's just off the Main Highway, and reconnects at Sudbury, only about 2 minutes travelling difference.
Here's a link to other Park sites, they are Private Ontario Campgrounds

Here is a link to the regulation of Quebec province about transporting propane bottles through tunnel :
