Touring in the Rain

We decided to wait until October in hopes of seeing good color. Mostly what we saw, was rain. Oh wait! One day it snowed. We started our trip off in Roscommon, MI, about 100 miles south of the Mackinac Bridge. When we entered into the UP heading west, it was a downpour and a major road detour with lots of traffic. We made our way west and then headed north More

What a thrill!

We started at Sault Ste. Marie in Michigan and went clockwise. Our first night we stayed at the lighthouse at Whitefish Point. It was lots of fun staying the the quarters of the crew! Then we proceeded on to Munising. Disappointed that our cruise was rained out, but made up for it by going to the Quincy Copper Mine on our way up to our next stop in Copper Harbor. More

Our tour

We traveled relatively quickly circled in just 5 days. Loved the fall colors and beautiful scenery. We even saw 2 moose between Wawa and Marathon. Eric, Denise and Justin Arthur, Hammond, WI

Memorable Trip with Friends

Four adults, two dogs, two campers, a Jeep and a truck. That was the formula for the most memorable trip we have ever had. Started in Grand Marais, MI driving clockwise with stops everywhere. Three weeks was the ideal time for us and we ended in Sault Ste. Marie, MI. We found that the Lake Superior Travel Guide magazine had perfect suggestions, from where to stay to places to eat. More

Our First Lake Superior Tour

We decided in early spring to do the tour and ordered the Lake Superior Travel Guide & Guide Book to help us decide our route, and where we wanted to stop. It was our decision to do the tour counter clockwise, as we have been along the north shore several times and if we ran short on time, or could not get reservations (We winged it with no reservations) we More

September Circle – Anti-Clockwise!!

We live in Northern Wisconsin and spend a fair amount of time on the Big Lake west of Ontonagon and we decided on a spur of the moment to circumnavigate Superior! We have friends in Ely, MN that we’ve been trying to see, so decided to get over there by going around the lake counter-clockwise and they met us in Duluth. Everything other than the south shore was “new country” More

Lighthouses, Waterfalls and Lakeside Vistas

We started our tour in Duluth and traveled clockwise around the lake. Although rainy through most of our journey, the scenery was beautiful. We cycled the paved trail from Gooseberry Falls to Silver Bay, MN (about 37 miles round trip). The trail was wonderful. We camped in our “Little Guy” teardrop camper and the campgrounds were plentiful with wonderful sites. (If you use an electric hookup, bring an extension for More
