We found Newfoundland basically closed for RV (campgrounds, some parks, restaurants, etc.) by the middle of September even when the temperatures were still excellent. The eastern ferry was discontinued as well so we never got to St. Johns.

Yes, unfortunately some campgrounds close early, pretty much after school has started because I suppose the customer base declines. The Argentia ferry also drops out of service around then due to the lack of tourists, etc. That said, the Port Aux Basque ferry runs twice a day from North Sydney and you can drive across the Island at your own pace. Takes about 10 hours straight driving but to enjoy the sights and meandering away from the Trans Canada Highway it could take you months to get there!

August. Weather is too unpredictable in September. Flies are too intense in June and July.

Welcome to the OP from a... former? part-time? is there even an adjective for people like me? Welcome, OP, from a "something" Cape Bretoner. Like the crazy people we are, we've now driven round-trip three times from Houston Texas to Cape Breton, twice in our Class B and once in the unfortunate minivan that preceded it and was the inspiration for its purchase. Road trip number four happens later this year, hopefully.
