7 Best Camping Spots for a Motorcycle Tour Around Lake Superior
If you're going to do something as incredible as looping the world's largest lake, you may as well go whole hog and camp it too.
Recently a friend asked me where the best camping spots were along Lake Superior. I’ve ridden the north shore about 10 times and a couple of those with a pop-top trailer or RV. I’ve had the pleasure of watching incredible thunderstorms roll in over lightly populated beachfront campgrounds, and catching pike and walleye off a dock while gazing over the Sleeping Giant, and while I love a nice clean comfy hotel room, there isn’t much that can compete with the intimacy one feels with nature when camping—especially in Northern Ontario.
If you’re a rider who has done any kind of camping before, these campgrounds will provide all the amenities you’ll need—and often for a very reasonable price. If you’re planning on staying for more than a night, most offer some short hiking trails with killer views.
