September 2018 Circle Tour

We started September 7th in Duluth and circled counter clockwise. We had been to Bayfield and Ashland before, so we decided to skip them this time and head directly into Michigan. Highlights in Michigan: Cold Iron Brewery in Ironwood. Of the breweries we stopped at during our tour, these guys were the best. Also, we recommend eating at Don & GG’s, which offers both vegetarian and vegan options; hiking the More

My Solo Adventure around Mother Superior

A first solo adventure! I drove from Marquette, MI clockwise around Lake Superior, having returned a few days ago. I live a few blocks from the Lake here and I thought it was high time I saw it from other vantage points. This trip did not disappoint. I stopped in Ashland, Wisconsin at the Black Cat Cafe for a quick breakfast and made my first overnight at Cascade River State More

Superior Country lived up to its name for our second complete circle tour!

We took two weeks to circle Lake Superior this summer and had fun everywhere we went eating whitefish, poutine, pasties and blueberries and blueberry pancakes. We bought thimbleberry jams from the Jam Lady and at Jampot in Eagle River/Eagle Harbor, MI. We had a fun time riding the boat at the Soo Locks. The boardwalk in Sault Ste. Marie, ON and seeing the big duck was neat. We saw waterfalls More

Camp, Kayak and Golf…

We began our trip at Pictured Rocks with a day of hiking and a late afternoon of kayaking at dusk on Kingston Lake. The next day we golfed in Brimley overlooking the lake and the “1,000 footers.” We camped in “The Soo” to the pleasant sounds of ship horns heading into and out of the locks. After a morning of more ship viewing and stocking up on provisions, we had More

Advice for Travelers

We, a couple and a sister, traveled from July 14-28, 2015, in a 16-ft. Scamp trailer. The weather was great and we camped every night. Never made reservations ahead and always found a nice campsite, many sites directly on Lake Superior. Never used an electrical site. Camped in WI Municipal, MN State and National Forest, Ontario Provincial, MI National Forest, and State Forest campgrounds. Our favorite camping area was in 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

Everywhere Was So Beautiful

When did you complete the Circle Tour? June-July 2015. What were your favorite spots and experiences on the Circle Tour? Sleeping Giant – especially the overlook 1,000 feet above Thunder Bay Loved the provincial parks – very helpful, friendly and comfortable – and lovely to stay right on the lake at Neys. Excellent museum at Whitefish Point. Everywhere was so beautiful. Bob Morrin, Portage, WI Andrea Nelson, Madison, WI

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
