We were planning a trip through Maine, New Brunswick, PEI and Nova Scotia leaving late August from Pennsylvania but due to a puppy problem we will not be able to leave until late September. Will there still be campgrounds open? Will it be too cold? I did some research and found many campground are closing mid Sept. Should we just head south instead of north? Any advice welcome.

You may find most campgrounds closed. I would make a plan and call the places you figured on staying. As far as too cold, don't ask a Canadian. We are known to camp out in the winter in tents. It really depends on what you call too cold.

I think you will find a few campgrounds open but a lot of the attractions could be closed by October. Many are staffed by university students and they will be back in school. You might want to check web sites if there are certain places you are interested in going. Canadian Thanksgiving is Oct. 13th this year and typically a lot of places close up that weekend.

We were in the area a few years back. Enough CGs open & fall colours were great.

Get back south before the last leaf falls. Thats when open CGs get tough to find.

Just got back from a 3week trip there. Beautiful !!! I highly recommend Murray beach provincial park in N.B. (site 102) and linkletter p.p. in p.e.i. if you like to camp close to the ocean.

We leave 9/28 from NY and plan on boondocking most of the time...gaspe' peninsula down coast of NB to PEI to southern coast of NB thru maine and home to NY...one month plus a titchy bit maybe.

WE saw that not many campgrounds are open but doesn't matter too much to us.

Most provincial campgrounds in NS close after the Canadian Thanksgiving (2nd weekend in October) I highly recommend Graves Island Provincial Park in Chester. You may find it difficult to get a spot without a reservation for that weekend

Camp grounds close to towns, where folks might use their rv as a home for a job, could be open, i.e. Fredericton, Saint John, Charlottetown, Halifax, etc.

There are also ways to boondock for a night or so.

Again, as said, lots of little things open, fall foliage is great. Some seasonal restaurants stay open through the first weekend of October.

Puppy will enjoy anyway.

BTW likely more will be open on PEI this year. It's 150 years since the first Confederation Conference in Charlottetown , that was the start for getting Canada together. Some special things continue through the fall, not sure how many.

I second Murray Beach. If you go say hello to Pam, the manager there.

In PEI, by far one of the nicest places to stay is New Glasgow Highlands. Say hello to Marlene and Les from Denis and Leah.

Safe travels.
