17 Sep What if we extended the camping season?
Everyone looks forward to seeing the magnificent fall foliage colors. This is probably why many RVers extend their camping season beyond the traditional summer days by finding campgrounds and national parks that allow them to enjoy nature long after Labor Day and Thanksgiving.
Of course, this kind of activity takes a little more planning since if the days are cool yet comfortable, the nights often hover around zero Celsius. Having the appropriate clothing and adequate heating become essential to ensure your comfort.
But when you are well equipped, it is really a great experience … with your partner or with the children. After all, we are fortunate to live in a province where the scenery is breathtaking, so why not enjoy it before the trees completely shed their leaves?
Campgrounds open year round
Did you know that some Camping Quebec member campgrounds are open year-round? There are 49 in total. We invite you to consult the list on the organization’s Website by using the “open year-round” filter in the search field.
Also take advantage of special offers for bookings until October 18. Consult the list of participating campgrounds.

Why not ready-to-camp
If you are already winterizing your RV, know that the ready-to-camp option is just as great. In fact, this is another way to experience camping. In addition, this activity is available until the end of October in some parks and for winter-lovers, some are even available year-round.
