Grundy Lake Provincial Park

Grundy Provincial Park

2016  – What can I say about Grundy Lake Provincial Park?  It’s our second favourite Park.  Trum loves driving around the park.  There are nine campgrounds and they also offer back country camping.  We do back country camping but we have not done it in this park.  However, it hasn’t been ruled out !  If you have not done back country camping before, this would be a great “starter” park.

Chutes Provincial Park


So here we are at the Chutes Provincial Park.   The sites in this park are spacious, flat and fairly private surrounded by trees.  Close to the town of Massey.  There is only one trail at this park and it follows the Aux Sables river; about 6 km return.  Beautiful vistas, truly scenic.

Munising, Michigan

pic-rocks-5We did not stay in Munising but we did stop there to do the Pictured Rocks boat tour.  If you are in the area, this is a must-see (in my opinion) and I don’t even LIKE boats so if I recommend it, then that’s something.  This is well worth the stop.     Pictured Rocks Cruises

Copper Harbour, Michigan

Copper Harbour

brockway-mtn7Copper Harbour is such a neat place and one of the best scenic drives we have ever taken was in this area.  Brockway Mountain Drive is about 10 miles long and is the highest paved road between the Rockies and Alleghenies.  The views are spectacular.

Porcupine Mountains State Park, Michigan

lake of the clouds

We left Duluth, MI to head for Porcupine Mountains State Park.  We stopped at the Greater Michigan Tourist Centre, in the middle of nowhere !  Huge, wonderful building with an observation tower, museum, gift shop etc.  Just a very neat place to spend some time. Then on to the Porkies !(as they are referred to) and to Lake on the Clouds. (pic left)

Bemidji, Minnesota


We stayed at the Royal Oaks RV Park; nice park.  We were only there one night so it suited our needs.  Clean park, small and there was no one at the office when we got there but we were able to pick our site and pay later.  Bemidji is the home of Paul Bunyan and Babe.

Duluth, Minnesota

dscn4289When we arrived at Duluth, Minnesota, we chose Indian Point Campground to stay at.  We had a great site, #66, at the back of the park.  We met the people next to us, they were from Indiana and had the cutest little dog named Murphy. This campground was conveniently located to everything; it was a great spot.

Winnipeg, Manitoba


I finally found my Pelicans !  We had been told there were pelicans at Caliper Lake Provincial Park Ontario.  We did not see them; not saying they weren’t there or would never be there, but they were not there when WE went.  But if you go to the Red River Dam near Lockport, Manitoba, then Holy Pelicans !  There they were; hundreds of them, all fighting with the cormorants and fishermen for fish.   They are pretty cute and look a tad prehistoric !

Rushing River Provincial Park

rushing riverRushing River Provincial Park is a beautiful park.  We arrived on 6 September 2016 and there was hardly anyone at the park.  I would say less than 20 sites were taken.   She gave us site 75 which she said was the nicest and it was !  We were overlooking Dogtooth Lake.  Beautiful spot.  FYI – This park is only 2-3 hour drive  to Winnipeg.
