Nova Scotia was not crowded at all. THere's some amazing boondocking spots in new brunswick and tons in Nova Scotia. We only stayed at campgrounds when we wanted a shower while in Nova Scotia. We have a mini youtube series if you want to check it out as it shows a few of the boondocking spots we stayed at (pretty much any beach parking lot is good to go as long as you're respectful ex. not noisy, don't litter, etc...)

here's the link if you want to check it out. Meat Cove in NS is a must see!

Good vid(s). Short and succinct. Will have to review a few more when I get a min. Thanks.

The Cabot Trail is nice. Have done it a few times.

We spent the whole month of August in PEI Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. We stayed in Fundy Bay NP 4 days Cavendish NP and Cape Breton NP . You need to go online in Jan to make reservations. These parks all have full hookups. Cape Breton we stayed in in Cheticamp campground. The provincial parks are also great places to camp.

I would not attempt taking a large rv to meat cove. I have done the Cabot trail twice, and been to Meat Cove twice. There is a campground there, but generally it is smaller campers there. It can be done, BUT, I wouldn't advise it. We stayed at Arm of Gold campground in North Sydney the first year, and drove motorcycles around the trail. The second year, we drove our rv to Plage St. Pierre campground, near Chetticamp NS, and took the tow car. The first day we just drove around the entire Cabot trail counter clockwise. This is actually only about four hours of driving, but we stretched it out over the course of a whole day, seeing the entire east side fairly thoroughly, as we knew we would not get there the second day. The second day, we drove clockwise directly up to Meat Cove. We had lunch at the restaurant there, then headed to Cape Breton NP, to hike the 8 km Skyline Trail. This trail is very scenic. We also saw three moose. This day was about the same amount of driving, around four hours in total. We also stretched that out over an entire day between stopping at lookouts, Meatcove, and Cape Breton NP. You can travel to Chetticamp with a large rv. The large hills start right after Chetticamp. We took the interior Cabot Trail highway off the TransCanada to get there. Would highly recommend HWY 19 instead. It not near as narrow as the interior highway. I also recommend spreading the Cabot Trail over two days. It can be driven entirely in one day, but doesn't allow any time to stop and see much. Most of the major scenery is on the west and north sides of the island. This is why we did the whole circle the first day, then concentrated on the west, and north side the second day. If you don't do the entire loop, you will think you missed something important on the east side. There is some nice scenery on the east side, but not near as nice as the rest of the trip around the top end and west side. If you have any other specific questions I can help with, let me know. Cheers.

We packed our tent and camping stuff in boxes and flew to St John’s in Newfoundland a few years ago. Rented a car and drove all over. The extreme southeast was very interesting with fossil evidence of once being attached to Africa, a lighthouse and radio tower that was first to hear the Titanic’s SOS. Campsites were scarce but other accommodation was very friendly and not expensive. We headed north and west along shorelines which offered cool weather near the shore and warm weather away from it. Gros Morne Park with fabulous views, boat tours and hikes was spectacular. They call a motel a Convenience Unit. We stayed in several of those, tent camped a view times and took an apartment for several days.

Another year we flew to Montreal, rented a car and drove along the St Lawrence River, across New Brunswick, over to Nova Scotia where we got lucky and rented a house on the shore for 3 days. We made it as far as Cape Britain, tenting and moteling. Ferry to PEI for fabulous beaches, touring historic homes in Charlottetown. Finally the Confederation Bridge back to the mainland and Montreal. Total of 2 weeks.
