Autumn Glory

We decided to allow two weeks so we could do everything we wanted and that was plenty of time. We took our 33′ fifth wheel trailer and were worried about campgrounds due to fall colors, but had no issues finding a spot to camp. There were a few campgrounds that closed Labor Day so I did do some calling ahead once we were close. I did not pre-book camp sites. More

Camping around the lake

We started clockwise around the lake at Duluth. Since we like to take our time and not be on a schedule we opted to camp and not make the suggested hotel reservations. Before leaving, we purchased a MN State Parks pass and were able to camp at all the State Parks going up the North Shore of MN. We never had a problem finding a camp spot. Minnesota makes it More

Bucket List Trip

We left home in the Twin Cities on our 2018 Honda Goldwing doing the circle tour clockwise. Because we’ve been to Duluth many times, as well as Split Rock Lighthouse, Gooseberry Falls, etc. we didn’t stop at those places. We had a delicious lunch at The Rustic Inn in Castle Danger and continued on to Grand Marais, MN for the night. We don’t recommend staying at the Shoreline Motel, as More

Circling the Pond

This is our first long adventure with our “new” Little Guy teardrop-style camper. We enjoyed being off the ground, dry and warm during the mostly damp days of June 24 – July 7. Our major interests were fly fishing, canoeing and finding EarthCaches, but the tour guide led us to other treasures including many well-done visitor center displays. Our tour began in Grand Marais, Minnesota, where we spent two nights at 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

One of Our Favorite Vacations

My husband and I completed the 1,300-mile circle tour in September this year. We both agree it was one of our favorite vacations ever. We took nine days but feel we could have have taken two weeks to have more time to enjoy some of the attractions. We started in Sault Ste. Marie, ON, spending our first night at the Best Northern Motel in Wawa with dinner at the Kinniwabi Pines More

A Great Adventure

My husband and I just returned after completing the Lake Superior Circle Tour. We left on Tuesday, Aug. 16 and returned Tuesday, Aug. 23, 2016. Day #1 we traveled from our home in New Richmond, Wisconsin to Grand Marais, Minnesota and stayed at Grand Marais Municipal Campgrounds. Day #2 we traveled to Thunder Bay, Ontario and camped at Sleeping Giant Provincial Park. Day #3 we went to Kakabaka Falls and 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

We Loved It

My husband (Ron Simmons) and I completed the Circle Tour during the dates of Aug. 16-25, 2014. We stayed at and enjoyed Sleeping Giant Provincial Park and Rainbow Falls Provincial Park. We day-hiked Ouimet Canyon walked the longest suspension bridge in Canada in that same area. Next trip, we will zip-line at that same location. At Rainbow Falls, we saw a large, healthy grey wolf. Our Golden Retriever (Sally) was More
