We Loved All of It

We have just completed our first circle tour of Lake Superior. It has been in two parts. Summer 2012: we traveled in Michigan from Sault Ste. Marie to Copper Harbor, over a period of about 8 days. We (wife, Karen, and our 90# flat-coat retriever named Jake) were camping along the way except in Copper Harbor, when we stayed in the King Copper Motel. We loved all of it … More

Would Absolutely Do It Again

For my partner’s 50th birthday, we thought that there was no better way to celebrate than to ride around Lake Superior. It was a trip that we had read about and thought sounded interesting. We were only concerned with time – how long would it take for us to realistically complete this tour, starting in Toronto and enjoying ourselves along the way? We finally decided to go for it, and More

I Loved the Trip

I made a counterclockwise loop of Lake Superior beginning at Duluth on August 4-15, 2013. I made overnight stops at Iron Mountain, Michigan; Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan (2 nights); Wawa, Ontario; Nipigon, Ontario (2 nights); Thunder Bay, Ontario (2 nights); Grand Portage, Minnesota (2 nights); and Duluth, Minnesota. I loved the trip. Special features were the many waterfalls and lighthouses, Young’s General Store in Wawa, the museum in Nipigon, amethyst More

We Loved the Trip

Our family recently completed a Circle Tour of Lake Superior. The dates of our trip were June 23-July 4, 2013. Since we were already familiar with Duluth and the North Shore, we decided to start at Duluth following a counterclockwise loop. We enjoyed going this way, except for our guidebook listed things in the opposite order, which made some directions a little harder to follow. We loved the trip and More

A Great Scenic Trip

We were on the Lake Superior Circle Tour September 10-18, 2012. We pulled our fifth wheels and traveled counterclockwise from Marquette, Michigan. Sibley Peninsula, Sleeping Giant Provincial Park was our favorite camping place. A grey wolf ventured into our camp, but left in a hurry when we came outdoors. Our least favorite camping place was Two Harbors, Minnesota, where they put our two fifth wheels into spots that were probably More
