    [:D] No dogs for this family so that's one less thing to think about!
    I was thinking of staying somewhere in between Montreal and Quebec so we would have less travel days. I suppose we could turtle in our HTT for a night or two just to minimize the packing and unpacking time but ideally, we like to get somewhere and be settled for two or three days.

    We're going to have to look into it for our 2 hounds. Taking animals across the border can be problematic any way. Quarantines and all. But there's an exemption for domestic animals with rabies certificates. But I'll have to look into the whole national parks thing.

    Dogs at the Border are no problem as long as you have the required paperwork. .

    Justdon't confuse our National Parks for the Provincial Parks. . Other then when talking about those in Quebec..

    Re dogs in QC. I think that the ban was just for 2018. I see that they are allowed, ar least in some parks. Good thing to double-check with the park(s) you choose.

    Hey, Steph!
    You can avoid travelling through Montreal Centre:

    and stay nearby at Parc national des Îles-de-Boucherville:

    Booking site:
    The red circle, above, is the RV Campground. It’s not pretty; but if you book early, there are a couple of sites beside grass/trees...and you’re across the bridge from Montreal.

    Of the two cities, I would gravitate to spending more time in Quebec—love the lower town—over Montreal.

    It may be too far out of your way; but if you can manage it, Hopewell Rocks in NB is fabulous place to join an on-site kayaking tour.

    Lots more to share...probably best in a conversation or msgr.

    I checked the camground website. They just say that pets are not allowed in the roofed structures. We should be fine. Although I'll leave extra time for the thorough search at the border that you always seem to get.

    Are you talking about for the dogs, or your required body cavity search? [LOL][LOL][LOL]

    In the past three years, I’ve made at least 15 return trips to the US. The questions going into the country (Canada or US) are where do you live, where are you going, when are you returning. Additional questions may include: Do you have anything to declare, any fruit or vegetables, firewood, alcohol, weapons.

    Returning questions are when did you enter the country, where did you go, what is the value of the goods you purchased, alcohol.

    I’ve only been sent to ‘secondary’ once—on the way into the US, and I was told it was a ‘random’ inspection. Although they did not search my trailer, I think they checked the contents of my cooler. Theyir questioning was focussed on whether I was planning on staying, working or doing volunteer work. Must have been all the stuff in my car.
