If you ever want some real winter camping, you got to go north about 300 miles.

There, the snow depth is measured in yards (or meters), and the season is longer.

Plus, there are frozen lakes that let you access (carefully --- check with locals first) places that is hard to reach most of the time.

Do come --- Quebec is just North of you.

Funny you mention Quebec!
Just yesterday I opened up a SnoTrax mag that had a nice map of that area!
We are talking about doing it next season for a week!
Need to get my enhanced DL first!

Have you considered Mont Cascades?

It is an absolutely fabulous area.

Mount Cascades I have been to, I don't know their policy about parking in their parking lot, but you can always ask.

http://www.montcascades.ca/

Even if you get a "non" the area is desolate, and there are many places where if you ask for permission from the owner (and buy things, tip them) you can probably park in their lot (gas station, etc.) for the night.

The people up there speak strange, (french), but are terribly friendly especially if you wave the US flag and put a big smile on and try to talk to them in 2 or 3 words of french at the start of the conversation.

FYI, try saying this:

"me prendre à votre chef s'il vous plaît"



The area is within commuting distance of Ottawa, and there are a lot of day trippers.

Roads are well maintained throughout the winter --- tons of parks, public areas.

Do enjoy yourself.

On some new models you can get an "Artic Package" which came on our Forest River Class C which heats the holding tanks. Unfortunately we don't winter camp but have used it early spring and late fall when temps dropped below freezing.

Yes, say that! Follow up with: "Nous sommes venus pour vos femmes de la Terre."
