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 as other great scenery) and 3 moose sightings. Michigan State Parks in the U.P. (Brimley, Tahquamenon, Muskallonge, Van Riper, Ft Wilkins, Twin Lakes) also provided good campsites and great scenery, along with more waterfalls. To answer some of the suggested questions: ***We found the people in Ontario to be extremely friendly and welcoming (not that we felt less so anywhere else). ***The quality of the Provincial Park campgrounds (secluded sites, clean and modern restrooms, showers, laundry) was a pleasant surprise. ***We made this trip by car/hotels 6 years ago and our need to get back to work made us rush more than we wanted. Now retired, we took our time to explore each area and spent 2 nights at some places. Plan on at least 2 weeks if you can! ***We both listed Rabbit Blanket Campground in Lake Superior Prov Park as our favorite. We would definitely pick that spot again, and spend even more time exploring the rest of the park. ***Is there a bad place to view the lake or take a pic?
