Hi Pat. To me, 'North Shore' means the Arrowhead of Minnesota between Duluth and Grand Portage just before entering Canada. That's just us pa-sota yokels talking tho...

From the Sault, do you intend to head east or go northwest around Lake Superior? The Circle Tour is a trip in itself.

I principally have familiarity with the Circle Tour. Going north and west around Lake Superior ...
  • Closely framed photos of Pancake Bay Provincial Park make the travel brochures but it is tiny and shut in between the highway and the lake.
  • Lake Superior Provincial Park is extensive and has many rivers, lakes, waterfalls, fishing, trails and shore sights -- worth 2-3 nights of exploring and playing here alone. I recommend Agawa Bay campground over & above Pancake Bay. Wawa at the north of Lake Superior Provincial Park is a good town for provisioning.

Guess I would have a lot more to add if that's the direction you're going. Pukaskwa National Park is pretty much a back country destination only. White Lake Provincial Park is interesting if you are into fishing -- but has huge cryptosporidiosis issues with their water supply -- only pull in there with full tanks and do not hook up to any of their water.

We have not spent a lot of time at Neys Provincial Park but have spent a fair amount of time at Rainbow Falls & Sleeping Giant. Guess we need to hear if you're actually headed west or east from the Sault.

North Shore Lake Superior

Neys Provincial Park is beautiful and quite unusual. First, lots of campsites overlooking a surprisingly large sand beach strewn with driftwood. Neys was a WWII camp for German POW's of the worst ilk, the Nazis. The worst of the worse!

It is not a monument to that, but there are photos and stories there about that time in history. If you watch and listen while there, sometimes you will run into a Canadian visiting it for the first time since they were there as a guard or in some other support role.

Kayakers will love it too as the waterfront is surrounded with islands. It's a very kool place to visit and relax.

I was speaking of heading around the Canadian side of the lake from SSM to Duluth - thanks for the notes. I was ready to pull the trigger on Pancake Bay but will reconsider...thanks for the note on White Lake water, too. Any other notes are greatly appreciated.

Neys sounds like just the thing for a stop...I'll start investigating right away.


Somebody, please, point me to the road.
