    One more vote for anything along the superior hiking trail. As a kayaker, I will also point out that the Lake Superior water trail has some campsites as well.

    Lake Superior Prov. Park is about 2 hrs north of SSM. I think they have a regular camp ground but also a 35-ish mile lake shore trail. There is a trail head at Gargantua Harbor and a short walk to the end of the bay with some designated sites and a short walk past that to the top of a ridge with awesome views. I haven't hung there (was a ground dweller last time through) but there are definitely trees there.

    Good Luck.

    I used to have kayaks, but sold them when I moved from TX. They were SOT's which are too cold for most of the year in IA and have never gotten around to geting another one.

    Perfect, this is just the type of information that I am looking for. I have a night planned at this park.

    Here is a link to a map that I created through google maps. Everything is up in the air on departure time right now. I am waiting on my blackbird to arrive.

    Here's the scene from the top of the ridge, worth the time and effort.

    What is the possibility of fishing around the lake?

    Of course I do want to catch fish.

    We go to VNP often ... well not as often as we would like. My wife's Uncle owns an island in VNP. Cemetery Island .... right where Namaken and Kabatogama come together.

    The possibility is great. If you fish the bays and harbors, you can catch Pike and Perch, and the shorelines are great for Browns, Brookies and Splake. Depending on the time of year, of course. In the fall, you can catch lots of different stuff along the shoreline. Summer is a lot harder, but the Brookies and Pike are always along the shore. I recommend a Rapala in Orange or Black, a good Mepps spinner, a Little Cleo in silver/blue or gold/orange (medium size) and a good Daredevil. If you have one of each of these, you can catch just about anything with any of them on the lake. Of course, live bait is the best but not practical for traveling, usually. You would need a license for each state, and a Great Lakes trout stamp. Prices vary per state for non-residents.
