KOA Camps in Canada: so far - so good

Until now we have visited two KOA (Camp of America) campgrounds in Canada, the first in Montreal and the second one in Quebec. As I learned they have three service levels, the Journey being the simplest, the Holiday offering more services and the Resort being the best version. All of them are near or on Highways so it is very easy to reach them with bigger rigs (without issues with low bridges).

Even the first one in Montreal was all good for us. Clean and new toilets and showers, well maintained flower gardens and grass, easy to access spots (pull-through for convenience). The power and water connection was reliable, there was one power outage due to a major thunderstorm which was really force major, outside of their control. So we enjoyed our stay there and I was especially grateful for the storage of our trailer and car after my initial drive from Delaware US was completed to Montreal.

The second KOA we visited was in Quebec, which is one category higher (Holiday) and about twice the size of the one in Montreal. It has a nice childrens' playground with real chickens, a gold washing game and a large jumping platform. The most enjoyed part was the pool and the hot tub which we used with the kids all times. It was still before the main season so the pool was open until 4pm and the water was a bit cold to my taste, the kids had no problem playing in it. The staff on duty was very kind and although the hot tub is signed 18+ only she recommended to warm up there with the kids. So we kindly used both facilities, going back and forth from one to the other every ten minutes.


The laundry was fine at both locations and we made good use of them. So overall we are happy with the service KOA provided so far and we plan to use them throughout our journey. Tomorrow we try a longer leg for the first time: about 500 kms to cover. So far we did only 180-200km per half days but we want to try and see a longer one heading to Nova Scotia. The goal is to reach a microbrewery so I am quite motivated! Will see how well the kids will cope with the long day. We plan several longer stops every 2 hours so might be a late arrival.
