Most RVers know that the Lake Superior Circle Tour—1,300 miles through two countries, three U.S. states, and one Canadian province—is one of those epic, bucket-list adventures. Travelling through Algoma Country, starting in the city of Sault Ste. Marie and into Superior Country is pure RV awesomeness.
But if the full circle isn't in the cards, campers can keep it Canadian by travelling to Thunder Bay and back along the north shore of the lake for a half circle adventure. And the further north you get into Ontario, the more wild and beautiful this drive becomes. We've rounded up everything you need to know about RVing the north shore.
where should RVers camp in Northern Ontario?
There are private RV parks on the Lake Superior Circle Tour. We stayed at the KOA in Sault Ste. Marie and found the perfect launching point for activities throughout Algoma Country. We also took in the Serpent River Campground and marveled at the natural beauty of the river and surrounding area. The Red Top Motor Inn gave us a good break from RV living and a great place to eat that has attracted a serious following in culinary circles.
We've found some of the best and most affordable options are Ontario’s Provincial Parks. Most offer spacious electric and non-electric sites, picnic tables, fire rings, laundry, shower houses, ice, firewood, nature programs, and more. And they do it at bargain rates in some of the most stunning spots in North America.
