An Excellent Trip

My husband and I completed the Circle Tour September 7-14, 2013. We started from Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan (where we live), and went clockwise around the Lake. (Several years ago we started from Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, and went counterclockwise as far as Terrace Bay, Ontario, but didn’t have time to go all the way.) The trip this month was a fulfillment of a years-long desire. We started off in More

We Camped on Our Trip

My dog and I just completed the circle tour in 12 wonderful days. It was supposed to be a trip with my Mother as well but she passed away last spring and so I decided to do it in memory of her. Start date: August 15, end date: August 26. Our trip started with a dog agility show in Thunder Bay and then we also spent a few days with More

My Favorite Parts

My favorite parts were: Staying at the B&B at the Whitefish Point Shipwreck Museum; Pictured Rocks – hiking after the boat cruise cancelled due to fog; the B&B on the beach in Rossport, Ontario; the Voyageur Lodge in Batchawana Bay, Ontario; Madeline Island, Wisconsin.

Our Trip Around Lake Superior

Starting on July 2, 2013, my husband and I made the trip around Lake Superior. Starting from Milford, Michigan, we entered Canada at Sault Ste. Marie. We spent the first two nights at Lake Superior Provincial Park, tent camping at the Agawa Bay campground. We loved the quiet, no-radio sites, hiking to the waterfalls on the Sand River and seeing the pictographs at Agawa Rock. From there we drove to More

The Most Impressive Thing

Terry & I finished doing the Circle Tour with our truck pulling a Pop-Up Camper Trailer. September 25, 2012 – We began our trip from our home in Ham Lake, Minnesota, with our first stop (N/N) being Porcupine State Park. This is a beautiful Park and we had an excellent campsite. September 26 – Then on to the Keweenaw Peninsula which proved to be very interesting. We overnighted at F.J. More

A Wonderful Trip

My husband, Clark, and I left on Monday, September 17 heading up the North Shore for what turned out to be a 9-day trip around the entire lake. Because we live in Duluth (and have seen the North Shore all our lives), we headed for Sleeping Giant Campground for our first night. Funny thing happened … we ran into our neighbors! Didn’t know they were making the trip and vice More

The Entire Trip Was a Blast

We traveled clockwise around Lake Superior starting on September 3, 2012, and finishing on September 8. We started in Northern Wisconsin, and took the Highway 13 loop to see Bayfield and the Apostle Islands. Stopped at several state parks on the north shore of Minnesota and camped at Split Rock Lighthouse State Park. Spent three days in Canada, camping at Sleeping Giant, Neys and Lake Superior provincial parks. Also stopped More

We’re Hooked!

Favorite spots and experiences: We spent almost 5 weeks traveling around Lake Superior in our little motorhome with our Springer spaniel, Polly. We’re hooked! Lake Superior really gets to you. Marc’s favorite spot was Pukaskwa National Park on the east side of the lake. The hiking there was spectacular, with views of the lake that reminded him of his home state of Maine. I liked Sleeping Giant Provincial Park, for More

First Week of October

My husband and I just completed our clockwise circle of the Big Lake the first week of October. Living just a mile away from Lake Superior ourselves, we have always wondered about the other side of the lake. We were also surprised to find that many of our friends and neighbors had never been all the way around. Since we knew Michigan very well we focused on everywhere else and More

We Camped All the Way Around

We started our trip on the motorcycle going clockwise around Lake Superior, so the water would always be on our right side. We camped all the way around. The Circle Tour book was very handy to flag points of interest. We really enjoyed the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum at Whitefish Point, Quincy Mine Tour and Split Rock Lighthouse. The ride around the Keweenaw Peninsula was especially lovely. The best by More
