Discover Ontario During Shoulder Season


Shoulder season is still an awesome time to RV While we love RV adventures any time of the year, parks are less crowded, quiet nights cooking around the campfire feel extra cozy, and sometimes activities are even priced a little lower in the fall. Are you convinced yet?!

Where should you enjoy shoulder season camping in Ontario? Here’s a few of our favourite spots.


Bruce Peninsula

The Bruce Peninsula is beautiful dressed in fall colours. It’s quieter in the off-season, but most amenities are still open, including some great campgrounds. There’s so much to do and explore: Two National Parks, a handful of nature reserves, and plenty of private campgrounds. The hardest part is choosing the best option (they’re all good).



In Ottawa, you’ll experience the best of both worlds: a city getaway with lots of space to roam just outside the city limits. Bike trails from downtown Ottawa connect with nearby parks. Stroll along the Rideau Canal, eat your way around ByWard Market, or cross the river to check out Gatineau, Quebec.


Prince Edward County

Wineries, lake views, and fresh airoh my! What more could you need? Take your pick from campgrounds in Prince Edward County or on the mainland, but you must drive around the county to taste test all the wineries. It’s the next Niagara!


Pukaskwa National Park

If you like hiking, you’re going to love Northern Ontario. Check out Pukaskwa National Park near Thunder Bay, just on the northern side of Lake Superior. If you’re a history buff, the Group of Seven explored this area years ago and there are plenty of spots marked as their exact lookouts.


The Muskokas

Discover Muskoka in the shoulder season. The days are still warm even though the nights are cooling. The boat locks are still open on weekends, so you can sit and watch them drive by. The normal hustle and bustle of the summer fades by September, so you’ll feel like you have the run of all the small towns in the area.


Point Pelee

20 kilometres of beaches and more wineries popping up in the area every daywhat other reason do you need to visit Point Pelee? Even in the fall season, all the fun stuff is still open. Take your bikes on a tour of the area or hike through the National Park. You won’t be bored on this road trip!



The road less travelled leads Ontarians to camp in Goderich in the shoulder season. Stroll along the quiet beaches and wake up in peaceful campsites. There’s a reason why Goderich’s slogan is “Canada’s prettiest town.” Why not see it for yourself?!


The Kawarthas

First, you need to try Kawartha Dairy Ice Cream. Now that that’s settled, get ready to unschedule and unwind in the Kawarthas, neighbouring the beautiful Muskokas. Fall colours, hiking and biking trails, and the rivers and lakes make this spot an adventurer’s dream. Have you ever seen a lift lock before? Watch boats use the one in Peterborougha National Historic Site.
