Circle Tour 30/60

2016 was the year I was to turn 60 and my darling daughter and best traveling companion turned 30, so we thought we would mark the occasion with a mother/daughter trip! We asked for advice via Facebook for the best travel destination. We researched areas throughout the United States and ultimately decided we would do the Lake Superior Circle Tour– and we are so glad we did!! We decided that More

Best trip ever!

Completed the circle tour as a family of 5 in our RV! Favorites were the many amazing waterfalls! In Duluth there were so many things to do as a family. We loved seeing the aerial lift bridge. Split Rock Light House, the many beaches and amazing views. The whole trip is a beautiful way to make memories and teach your children about the many wonders of Lake Superior, and its More

Yes, we did it!

Just finished an amazing tour around Lake Superior. Started in Sault St. Marie, Ontario and continued counterclockwise. We saw much more than expected and were impressed by nature’s beauty. Give yourself at least 1 or 2 extra days, so that you have enough time to fully indulge in your journey around the Big Lake. Nadja and Joerg, Saline MI

2019 Lake Superior Circle Tour

We had taken this trip July 2013 traveling clockwise by car and staying at motels. This was pre-retirement, so we were both watching the clock/calendar, mindful of how many miles we needed to complete each day. It was a wonderful trip! We are now both retired, and purchased a Vistabule teardrop camping trailer that we tow with our Jeep. We decided to take the tour again, but counter-clockwise, camping along More

Once around the Big Lake

We traveled with 2 couples, convoy-style, clockwise beginning and ending in Duluth. Our first day was just spent enjoying the sights of Duluth. We spent time at Canal Park, Hoops Brewery and Burrito union, Two couples stayed at Park Point Marina Inn & Harbor where we finished off our day playing dominoes. Day 2 Duluth – Thunder Bay: I always enjoy the view at Palisade Head so we made a More

Our Amazing Circle Tour

The lighthouses and waterfalls were spectacular. Amnicon Falls, Gooseberry Falls, Tahquamemon Falls were great. The Shipwreck Museum at Whitefish Point on a rainy, windy day reminded us just how stormy Lake Superior can be. We took the sunset cruise at Pictured Rocks and were on the cruise ship when a family of four were rescued from the rocky coastline. Favorite lighthouse- Split Rock Lighthouse Ruby & Bill Dow, Mauston, WI

2019 Lake Superior Circle Tour

We set out intending a counter-clockwise route, but realized that due to Memorial Day Weekend, we might have difficulty finding campgrounds in the U.S. We were camping at Jay Cooke State Park in our Vistabule teardrop trailer when we made the decision to go clockwise. Provincial Parks (Kakabeka, Rainbow, White Lake, Rabbit Blanket) provided great campsites on the Ontario side, and we were treated to plenty of waterfalls (as well More

The greatest circling of a lake I’ve done.

Without a doubt there is no better lake route than to circumnavigate Lake Superior. We managed to start in Sault St. Marie and navigate counter clockwise through many interesting towns and stopping points. The North shore is very scenic, capped off by the hills surrounding Thunder Bay–wow. Our trip through Duluth brought us to the history of that area. The Legend of the Edmund Fitzgerald looms large in this area. More
