Many years ago I took the train from Fredericton to Montreal and back a few times and it was nice. The best times were when I had a berth so I could sleep at night and that made it much easier than sleeping in the seat.
As for camping, I haven’t camped a lot, but I’d recommend any of the National Parks and especially Fundy National Park in New Brunswick.

In northern Ontario, there is a nice campground in Dryden. Dorion is the home of Eagle Canyon, a nice campground with two long suspension bridges. One of the bridges is 600 feet long I think. The KOA in Sault Ste. Marie was very nice. Camping in a couple of Ontario provincial parks south of Sudbury was overpriced in May 2005.
It has been several years but canoe trips in Algonquin Provincial Park were great. I have done one canoe trip in Quebec but no camping east of there.
I have taken many nice trips by VIA Rail between London, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal.
The GO train around the Greater Toronto Area is designed for commuters but it has always been great.
