Celebrate the first-ever Canadian Camping Week by checking out the Top 10 places in Canada to see by RV:
1. Moraine Lake, Alberta
Once printed on the back of the Canadian twenty dollar bill, it is often referred to as the “Twenty Dollar View” – but it’s more like a million dollar view. See why it’s one of the most photographed spots in the world: http://www.banfflakelouise.com
2. Osoyoos, British Columbia
Did you know Canada is home to a desert? Whether you’re trekking through its valleys or swimming in Canada’s warmest lake, your experiences will be unforgettable in this one-of-a-kind place: http://www.destinationosoyoos.com/

Great suggestions. I’m from Edmonton and while The Rocky Mountains are always spectacular to visit I also love going to Drumheller and The Badlands. I’m sure camping there would be a pretty cool experience.
