A Trip We Will Never Forget

We’d like to join the Lake Superior Circle Tour Club! On Monday, Sept. 5, 2016, my husband and I left California to start a 7,800 mile road trip, with the highlight being circling Lake Superior, the only Great Lake we hadn’t seen. We arrived in Duluth on Tuesday. Sept 13. Our first stop was the Lake Superior Outlet Store where we bought the Lake Superior Travel Guide and the Lake More

Our Lake Superior Circle Camping Trip

We began in Toronto, north to Algonquin Provincial Park on July 13, then to Killarney Provincial Park (strictly speaking Georgian Bay, but gorgeous), past Sault Ste. Marie to Rabbit Blanket campground in Lake Superior Provincial Park. Absolutely fantastic sights and great hiking! And between the thunderstorms the weather was brilliant! Next we camped at Pukaskwa National Park for wild and beautiful vistas. Bald eagles on a tree over our tent More

Spectacular Beauty

After talking about it for years, my husband, Terry, and I finally decided to do the tour. We started out on Sunday afternoon, June 12, from Duluth, and did the tour clockwise. We ended the tour a week later in Duluth on Sunday, June 19. We followed Midwest Living Magazine’s suggested day-by-day route. (We weren’t aware of your magazine’s publication on the route until we were in Grand Marais a More

Worth Every Minute

My husband, Jim, and I have been along Lake Superior in Michigan many times. This year we decided it was time to make the Circle Tour. We left Mishawaka, Indiana, on June 19, 2012, to head north. After spending time on Mackinac Island, we traveled to Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, to cross into Canada. We spent the next 7 days exploring the Canadian coast of Lake Superior. We reentered the More

We Had a Wonderful Time

Hi, My wife and I completed the Circle Tour this summer. We started in Duluth on July 18, 2011, and drove counterclockwise around the lake and ended the tour in Duluth on August 9, 2011. We were disappointed in the Minnesota government shutdown, which radically changed our plans, however we managed okay. Highlights include Keweenaw Peninsula; Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan; Wawa and Nipigon, Ontario; Grand Marais, Minnesota; Gooseberry Falls State More

Everyone Was So Friendly

My stepmom and I just completed the tour of Lake Superior. We traveled for six days last summer (2010) and five days this summer (2011). In 2010, we started on Minnesota’s North Shore at Palisade Head. We went from there to Thunder Bay, Ontario. We drove to Sault Ste. Marie and then made a side trip to Mackinac Island from St. Ignace. After that, we drove to the Shipwreck Museum More
