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.
