3 National Parks in Canada to visit in a campervan this summer

Glacial mountains, emerald green forests, maple syrup (!) – these are a few of our favorite things. After two long years of closed borders, our neighbors to the north in Canada are welcoming travelers back. If you’re traveling in a Voyager campervan this summer, hopping over the border is easy, especially if you’re departing from Minneapolis.

 

Ready to roll? Check out these 3 campervan-friendly parks in Canada:

 

Pukaskwa National Park

With 60 kilometers of coastal hiking trail along Lake Superior, Pukaskwa National Park is a dream for diving right into remote wilderness. This rocky granite shoreline is flanked by tall cliffs, spruce and pine trees, and ancient history of the Anishinaabe indigenous culture. Trek across a lofty suspension bridge atop a waterfall, try out geocaching, or skip land entirely and float your way along one of the park’s many paddling routes. You’ll be spoiled for choice here.

  • Distance from Minneapolis: 9 hours

Killarney Provincial Park

Way up on the oh-so sparkling Georgian Bay, Killarney Provincial Park definitely falls into the category of “out there”. This park is backed by the La Cloche Mountains, where white quartzite rock weaves in between over 50 small to mid-sized lakes. You’ll find prime spots for camping, canoeing, kayaking, and trekking across the park – oftentimes having the pristine nature all to yourself. From easy-breezy to challenging, there’s a route for every skill level.

  • Distance from Minneapolis: 13 hours

Bruce Peninsula National Park

Strikingly blue waters and rocky grottos might have you thinking you’ve stumbled into the Mediterranean somehow – until you see the sprawling evergreen backdrop. Bruce Peninsula National Park is another favorite along Georgian Bay, where you’ll come face-to-face with wildlife. Stargaze, scuba dive, hike, or boat around – this park needs to be thoroughly explored by both land and water, and summer is the perfect time to do it.

  • Distance from Minneapolis: 15 hours
