Sep 2, 2018 - SSM to Sturgeon Falls, Ontario

September 2, 2018 Very foggy this morning for our drive on the TransCanada Hwy17 along the north shore of the lake Hudson. Regardless of the fog, there was not really any sight of the lake along the way. Was a good morning to listen to a book and do a crossword puzzle. We knew there was a Costco in Sudbury so planned for lunch there. Sudbury is not very attractive and for the most part is an industrial town know for lumbering, smelting and mining. Costco was incredibly busy and offers an even better lunch price than in the US. 2 Polish dogs...

Jun 16, 2013 - Sturgeon Falls

I pack up my stuff from hotel in Montreal check out and hit the road out of the city just as the rain starts, I had three very nice days while in Montreal no rain. Drove on the freeway system to get out of Montreal then on to a slower road Canada 17 so could check out the country side, had rain sometimes very heavy to just sprinkles until I reach Ottawa, then the rain stops and the rest of the day just over casted. Stopped for the night in Sturgen Falls a drive of 350 miles. get checked into a small hotel some dinner and bed. After getting...

Jun 10, 2013 - Day 27 - Renfrew to Sturgeon Falls (North Bay) road day

Road day from Renfrew (glad to leave) to Sturgeon Falls (glad to arrive). A more stark contrast in what a campsite should be would be hard to imagine (relative to the previous 3 days) - what a delightful setting and well managed site. Followed Highway 17 from Ottawa area all the way for around 270Kms - only single carriageway road but a delightful drive. Quiet roads, variable scenery totally stress free and not at all tiring (just as well after everyone's disturbed sleep the previous night). No sooner settled than the owner offered to take...

May 15, 2012 - Colden's first swims of the trip

Our first stop was at a new KOA campground. Nice young couple still learning how to operate the computer/cash register. Great site along a river with an inlet big enough to dock boats. Colden enjoyed cooling down by swimming in the inlet. He didn't like the docks but had no problem going in from the shore. Didn't unhook so that we could make an early start. Made it 413 miles today...too long for every day but a good first one.

Jul 19, 2011 - Sault Ste Marie, MI to Sturgeon Falls, Ontario 250 miles

CANAD -IA - YEAH! We woke early at The Soo, had waffles paid a toll to cross the International Bridge ($6) and headed for the border control. We couldn't see a thing on top of the bridge b/c of fog. When we got to the border gate the official asked: "What are you carrying?" I almost said: "What do you want?" Luckily, Charlie beat me to the puncgh and said, just regular camping supplies. We might have gotten a strip search! There was a casino just inside the border so we tried to open the door to get to their ATM (suggested by Visitor's...

Sep 6, 2008 - Sturgeon Falls, ON

Well, we pulled into Glenrock Cottages and Trailer Park after driving a 280 mile leg on Route 17. Lots of trees, one black squirrel, and lots of bumps. The weather turned noticeably cooler and damp. We plan (Plan?!? Me?? Ha!) on leaving here on Monday toward Sudbury, then Sault St. Marie where we’ll re-enter the States.

Jun 19, 2008 - Canada at last

It was a little warmer this morning… 45 degrees when we got up but at one time we saw it hit 60, even though it was for a very brief time…. Bill hooked up the truck and put the electrical cords away in the rain… Not a fun task but one of the realities of RV’ing…. Course we had the option of staying put if we wanted but we were pumped up to get into Ontario…. I don’t know why everyone worries about crossing the border… We have always been treated kindly but we have heard so many horror stories that we wonder if we will be the next… The gal...
