Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, July 31, 1971 THE lETrURIDGE HERALD 13 Canadian camping holiday Part 1 Pack your gear; find out what Canada s really like Canada is a land of lakes and forests, mountains and prairies, and relatively few people. IL has been called a sports- man's paradise. And Lhe best way to find out is lo take a camping holiday. j Pack your gear; arm your-1 self with a good road man and j plan to drive, cither the Trans- j Canada or Yellowhead high- ways. Both cut through some of the most scenic country in the world. The Trans Canada, stretching nearly miles from St. John's, Newfoundland in the east, to Victoria, British Columbia, in the west, is the longest paved road in the world. The Yellowhead is a newly completed mile route running north of the Trans- Canada, and linking the four western provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia. There is good fishing in most parts of the country. It's wise, though, to check with individu- al provinces regarding fish and game regulations in the areas you plan to visit. Generally, summer daytime temperatures are comfortably warm, but evenings, especially in the north, can get pretty cool. It's also a good idea to have a supply of insect repel- lent handy. National and p r o v i ndal parks, and private c a m p- 300 SUNGLASSES ro choose from AVAILABLE IN YOUR RX grounds near both highways, offer three types of campsites. They can be fully serviced, remi serviced and primitive. Charges vary from province to province. Rales at private c a m p- grounds nre competitive. NEWFOUNDLAND Along the Trans Canada Highway, there is a camp- ground approximately every 100 miles, a picnic area every 50. In Newfounlland, 25 na- ticial and provincial parks, with campsites, lie within 20 miles of the highway. Six others are for picnics only. All have drinking water, garbage collection and pit toilets. Most have swimming, fishing and boating and some have nature and hiking trails. The trout, salmon and deep sea fishing is a major tourist attraction in this newest and nioit easterly of the provinces. Campers who haul their own boats will find special launching ramps and docks at many campgrounds. NOVA SCOTIA Tuna fishing, fresh caught lobster and swimming in the shallow surf arc some of the reasons for camping in Nova Scotia. The visitor with tent, trailer or camper vehicle, will find eight camp and 11 picnic grounds in provincial and na- tional parks within easy reach of the highway. Facilities range from modern to rugged. Activities include sailing, swimming, golfing and fishing. Nova Scotia, which resembles New England geographically, is steeped in the traditions and history of a seafaring people. P.E.I. Set in the blue of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Prince Edward Island is the smallest of the Canadian provinces. It has a picturesque, rural countryside and miles of sandy beaches washed by warm salt water. WEEK'S MINI-DRAW WINNER IRMA BRIDGEMAN VANCOUVER, B.C. A MINI-DRAW EVERY WEEK 'TIL AUG.

QUEBEC In Quebec, Canada's largest proviuce, campers can choose from wilderness settings to sites Just outside the cosmo- politan city of, Montreal, and everything in between. Some parks and reserves have been set aside exclusively for hunt- ing and fishing; others, desig- nated as wilderness zones, can be reached only by the hardy camper on foot, horseback or in a canoe. Twenty four pro- vincial and national parks, with campsites, are located near the Trans Canada High- way; there are 16 other picnic areas. Swimming pools are commonplace; so are showers. A few even have community halls and several are situated near drive in theatres. Quebec had one million lakes. Speckled trout are found all over the province. Other fish are bass, muskellunge, pike, walleye, Atlantic salmon, shad, bullhead, channel cat- fish and perch. Although French is the chief language of the province of Quebec, English-speaking tour- ists don't have to worry. Eng- lish is also spoken almost everywhere and printed infor- mation is in both of Canada's official languages. (Continued next week) USE THIS HANDY MAM, ORDER COUPON 81 SUM TO.
