    Hi all,

    Those of us who live in or travel to Canada will not be happy with the new charge for sanidump services. Fees are $5.00 without fuel purchase and $2.00 with at Husky Service centers.

    The dump lids are padlocked and one must go to the cashier to pay and get the key.

    They have charged where I live for at least the last 4 years. Unless of course you get fuel or something.

    The Flying Joint is startin to do the same cost us $4 with card. Unfortunately Canada has poor resources when it comes to RVs. They want to promote tourism but have nothing to offer RVs, parks are few with fewer services and the ones you do find are way over priced, as a Canadian Im extremely disappointed so I will continue my travels in the good old USA until we smartin up!
    Another option is do what I did is install your own outlet to the sewer/septic gives me and my RV friends a place to m/t their tank

    I don't know where you live exactly in Canada, but just around where I live (30 min. east of Toronto), I have at least 5 places where I can go and only 2 of those would charge as they are campgrounds. There are tons of facilities for RV's and RVers. We travelled through B.C. and Alberta for 2 weeks in June and not once did we encounter a problem because we were travelling by RV. Campgrounds were everywhere and very reasonable. We never had to pay once anywhere to dump.
    I think that if you do a bit of research, you will find tons of facilities. You just have to know where to look. We've been camping for over 20 years in tents, tent trailers and now a 32' TT.
    Just an example of camping locations; there are 53 Provincial Parks located within less than 300 Kms from Toronto. And then there are the countless private campgrounds. There certainly isn't a lack of choice. We have yet to come across a park that has overcharged us or that we found were overpriced. Unless you're in Niagara Falls, Ontario or close to a major attraction, as in the States (think campgrounds around Yellowstone which are overpriced), you will only pay average rates.

    Keep an open mind and inform yourself. Here's the link to all dumps in Canada:

    http://www.sanidumps.com/sanidumps_canada.php

    The list is over 100 pages and therefore too long to carry, but you can download it in the form of an e-book.

    Happy travels

    Hi Sylvie,

    I live in Regina. There is one free dumpsite within a 171 kilometer radius, unless you are registered at a campground.

    There are none that are maintained in mid winter at all.

    Have you ever tried to get in a prov park on a weekend, there are parks in the middle of fields in the middle of no where. The 1000 islands are a prime example, Gananoque would really benefit with a town RV resort, wish I had the money to do that LOL, not into KOA kids thing.
    But theres always boondocking at the casinos, would be nice to plug in as apposed to runnin the gene. Always a way around but I woud be nice to see some better RV resorts
    Cheers
