A Superior trip Around Lake Superior!

As a National Park geek, I wanted to take advantage of the National Park sites in and around Lake Superior, with Isle Royale National Park as the main focus. After visiting Keweenaw National Historical Park in Calumet, Michigan, enjoying 2 different boat tours at Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, and camping in Bayfield, Wisconsin, I then headed through Duluth to Grand Portage, Minnesota, by way of Gooseberry Falls State Park, Split More

Great Road Trip

I have been vacationing on Lake Superior’s south shore on Wisconsin’s North Coast for my entire life. I’ve visited the Minnesota Arrowhead and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula several times, but this was our first circle trip through Ontario from Thunder Bay to Sault Ste. Marie. We began and ended at Cornucopia, Wisconsin. The trip was simply fabulous. The Duluth/Superior Harbor, Lighthouses along the Minnesota shore, the Canadian Shield, the water falls More

Just Finished the Lake Superior Circle Tour

Hi, we have just finished our Lake Superior Circle Tour! We started from Sault Ste. Marie and finished there. We started on Sept. 17 and ended Sept. 24. We did it as a couple, driving our SUV and using local motels to stay. We hiked a few parks as we are avid hikers. That was a very intense drive but truly worth it! Lake Superior is majestic and a bit More

Loved It All

Started the trip Sept. 10 and ended the trip Sept.19. Spent nine days driving around the lake. We drove a little over 1,600 miles with the side trips. Loved it all. It was like three different scenic areas. The first one was the Minnesota north shore. Been there several times in the past, but never been past Grand Marais before. The second area was past Thunder Bay. It was just a More

A Wonderful Trip!

We did the Lake Superior Circle Tour from July 3-12, 2015. What an awesome trip! It is so hard to pick favorites. Loved the view of Split Rock Lighthouse from afar. Watching climbers at Palisades Cliffs. Grand Marais was a cute little town (great meal at The Angry Trout). We saw a bear on the Gunflint Trail. High Falls and Kakabeka Falls were just the beginning of many beautiful falls. More

Highly Recommend It

We arrived in Duluth on June 21 and returned on July 5 after going clockwise around the lake. My dad had been on several mine tours before but thought the Soudan Underground Mine’s was the best he had seen. He was also impressed with Quincy’s. We had beautiful weather so we were really able to enjoy the shore views and waterfalls. I really enjoyed discovering the various views of Split More
