We will be traveling to Nova Scotia and Prince Island in July. We have 3ish weeks to explore the area and I'd like help with timing and campground suggestions. Here is my rough timeline:

1 day - Mocton
3 days- Advocate Harbor/Joggins area
4 days- Lunenburg - day trips to Annapolis Royal/Digby/Kejimkujik National Park
2 days Halfax/Peggy Cove
2 days- Louisbourg/Syndey
2 days - Cabot Trial
2 days-Baddeck
3 days- Charolttetown - exploring the Southern and Eastern section of PEI
3 days- Cavendish - exploring Northern and Western section of the Island
3 days - Bay of Fundy Area

Since I've never been here any suggestions are welcome. We are traveling in a 32ft motorhome and we tow.

Thanks in advance for your advice on the timeline and campgrounds!

Dpn't get sp exact in your plan that you spoil the trip.

My timing will not be your timing. We each have things we like a bit more.

Get your visitors guides and provincial maps. Those prepared by the province are ever so much more related to the trip than any messed up commercial map.

& for heavens sakes. New Brunswick is special too. We all laugh at both Trump and Harper.

Can't help much with your timing I always found that the timing thingie was good to give you a rough idea. As for campgrounds I am more familiar with Nova Scotia , Pick up a Doers and Dreamers Guide from the Provincial Tourism Bureau Full of great ideas . On the campground side we always enjoyed the Provincial Parks , of which there are several along your route. On the
Peggy's Cove area , we enjoy Graves Island , has some beautiful large 2 way hooks ups although most of the provincial parks are site only. The Cape Breton Island area is a treasure full of good ideas.
Our only experience in PEI is Twins Shores campground , great spot and close to most of what you need. If I can be more specific ,send me a PM . Enjoy

A thought........
It is "FREE" to get onto PEI
It costs you to "LEAVE".

We travel with a 40 foot MH and tow.
We take the ferry across to the island
and the Confederation bridge coming back.
The bridge charges $15/axle so it will be $60.
