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

Lake Superior Circle Tour

We started our tour in Duluth, MN on September 10, 2019, after spending the evening at the Fitger’s Inn and dinner at the Pickwick Restaurant. We traveled along North Shore Drive (US61) visiting Split Rock Lighthouse and Grand Portage. We spent the night in Thunder Bay, ON. While there we visited Fort William and Kakabeka Falls, and then traveled to Wawa, ON. In Wawa, we visited the large goose statue 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

Lake Superior LOVE

We began our overloading adventure in Marquette, MI and headed counter-clockwise around the lake to end in Houghton, MI, a place special to us. We have an overloading setup and chose early Fall to experience a little bit of the colors but warm enough to be mildly comfortable in our rooftop tent. Some of our favorite locations (in order) are the Log Slide Overlook in Grand Marais, MI, the Great More

Minneapolis to Grand Portage. Stop 1 in Grand Portage. One 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

Circle tour by motorhome

We started the circle tour at Sault Ste. Marie after traveling up from Pennsylvania. Traveling counterclockwise, we stayed at provincial parks and municipal campgrounds for most of the trip. We found the route to be RV friendly, with good roads and plenty of parking and pull-offs. Contrasting with our familiar Lake Erie shoreline, we were delightfully surprised by the number of islands and the beautiful uncrowded rocky shores. Highlights for More

Our Circle Tour

We had a great trip. Drove up the Keweenaw Peninsula. We did not go all the way to the end. Road turned into a gravel road and there was some kind of bicycle races going on in Copper Harbor. There are a lot of great scenic overlooks to stop at all around the lake. I really enjoyed Pandora Amethyst mine. I picked a few nice pieces of amethyst. We went More
