Ontario is one of our favorite places on earth. Thick pine forests, sandy lakeshores, and rolling farmlands come together in one stunning province. It’s an exceptional region for vacationing and you’ll want to savor every second of the outdoors. To accomplish that goal, we recommend seasonal RVing in Ontario.
Seasonal RVing means staying for a longer term than your typical week-long or weekend vacation. In Ontario, most seasonal RVers stay for the summer holidays between June and August. Some stay for a month, some stay for several. The choice is yours, but there are many benefits to longer stays. Keep reading to learn why you should try seasonal RVing this summer!
1. Less Packing, More Playing
Staying seasonally means less time packing (and unpacking) and more time playing. Rather than making several short trips each summer, take a long-term stay to avoid the hassle of frequently moving. This makes life easier and vacation more enjoyable!
2. Day Trips to Niagara Falls
One of the best parts about seasonal RVing in Ontario is that you can frequently day trip to many natural wonders. Niagara Falls, for example, is within a one-hour drive of several resorts, including:
3. Summer Activities in the Blue Mountains
If you’re heading to the shores of the Georgian Bay, Craigleith RV Resort & Campground is an ideal destination. Located in Thornbury, Craigleith provides easy access to summer activities in the Blue Mountains. With golf courses, hiking trails, high ropes courses, a mountain coaster, and more, Blue Mountain is just as fun in summer as in winter.
4. Beach Days at Sherkston Shores
For seasonal guests at Sherkston Shores, summer fun doesn’t require one to leave the resort. With two and a half miles of sandy beaches along Lake Erie, Sherkston Shores has plenty of aquatic activities. From swimming to paddle boarding to jet skiing, the beach day fun is endless!
5. Camping Near Stratford Festival
Are you a fan of the theatrical arts? Consider taking your seasonal stay at Woodland Lake RV Resort & Campground. Nestled near Stratford, Ontario, Woodland Lake is ideal for RVers who would like to attend Stratford Festival productions. From Shakespearean classics to more modern plays like Oklahoma, Stratford Festival is a renowned celebration of drama.
6. Exclusive Access to Seasonal Resorts
Perhaps the best part of seasonal RVing in Ontario is the access to exclusive resorts. Gulliver’s Lake RV Resort & Campground caters just to seasonal guests and features a 14-acre lake fed by artesian wells. Scuba divers and swimmers are particularly keen to explore the clear waters.
Further south, Pleasant Beach Campground is a great destination near Niagara Falls and Lake Erie. The namesake Pleasant Beach is a lauded kitesurfing destination on Lake Erie, and there’s plenty more fun around Sherkston. Be sure to check out the resort’s seasonal RV sites and cozy cabins!
7. Come and Go on Your Schedule
Yet another reason to become a seasonal guest? You can come and go on your schedule. More and more workplaces are offering the flexibility to work remotely. For the summer, you can stay at a nearby resort, working remotely and occasionally heading to the office as needed. It’s the perfect way to spend the summer camping without using all your vacation time.
8. Provincial Park Visits
Ontario is home to many astounding provincial parks. When it comes to seasonal RVing in Ontario, that means you can take many visits to nearby provincial parks. For example, Silver Birches RV Resort & Campground is close to birdwatching and beaches at Pinery Provincial Park.
