camping with EV in Ontario

    I am in Montreal, owner of a Kia Niro EV.  In Quebec most provincial parks are equipped with a Level 2 charging station.  I am trying to plan a trip from Montreal to Temagami, with a stop on the way (Algonquin maybe).  Using the Quebec electric circuit app, and plug share, I can't see that this is possible! does anyone have any experience with camp grounds (particularly provincial parks) that will have a charging station or at least a high voltage socket for my portable level 2 charger? not getting much info from Ontario Parks

    I just configured A Better Routeplanner with your vehicle and put Montreal to Temagami and back.

    THIS link will show all the details of where to charge and for how long.

    You won't have much to spare for use in the Temagami because on your return it is saying you'll have 12% on arrival at the first charging station.

    You might want to charge right in Temagami HERE  The PlugShare comments say if the machine is not working, just reboot it.

    Thanks Terry,

    This is great. I wasn't aware of that trip planner site.  Much appreciated.

    Just getting it to work on Android Auto.  Need to install the beta version for that.  I will be giving it a try.  Might be a good solution vs using Waze + Plug Share + Electric Circuit (quebec)...

    Just getting started with EV ownership.  So much to learn!
