3. Cannamore Orchard, Ottawa and its countryside, Ontario

5. Verger Belliveau Orchard, New Brunswick
Located among the fertile hills along the Petitcodiac River in New Brunswick, the Belliveau orchard includes more than 70,000 apple trees! It's immense! In fact, it is one of the largest apple producers in Atlantic Canada. Despite this, you will be warmly welcomed there and, as a Terego member, you will be able to enjoy a pleasant RV camping site with a view of the apple trees.

6. Domaine de Lavoie, Monteregie, Quebec
Both a winery and a cidery, the Domaine de Lavoie in Rougemont is a great destination for adults. If you book a guided tour, you can visit the winery and facilities, drink in hand. You can also, quite simply, take advantage of their beautiful domain and the terrace for a most pleasant RV stopover.

7. Bad Apple Brewing Company, Huron, Ontario
Here we are cheating a bit because Bad Apple Brewing Company is a brewery. It deserves a spot on our list of orchards to visit in an RV, as it is located in the heart of an orchard on the beautiful shores of Lake Huron. Also, the fruits grown in the orchard are used in the production of some beers. Tasting good local beers is also a pleasure that you can afford on a late summer road trip!

This orchard offers a magnificent panorama of the river as it is located on a cape on the banks of the St. Lawrence. In addition to pick-your-own apples, the orchard specializes in the artisanal manufacture of strong and sparkling iced ciders. All the members who visited this orchard told us that they loved their RV stopover!
