Sunset Retreat

1 site · Lodging1 acre · Calumet, Keweenaw
This is a great opportunity to enjoy pristine Cedar Bay on Lake Superior from the comfort of a vintage Airstream Argosy! There are 200 feet of private beach access as well as trails that connect through the 10 back acres to the Black Creek Nature Preserve. The property faces directly west which provides amazing sunsets year round over lake Superior. You will have access to the deck overlooking the dunes and lake. We regularly see Bald Eagles and deer as well as loons. Because of it's location near the end of a dead-end road, most mornings you will awaken to the sounds of birds and waves. This is the perfect place to disconnect from the world but if you need to connect there is also Starlink internet access.

The Little Slice

2 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents1 acre · Zeba, Baraga
Just off the Skanee Road in Skanee, MI sits a clean, comfortable camper waiting for you. This camper, which can sleep up to 4, is a great way to enjoy some comforts while still "camping" in the woods. The property itself is small but does also offer a second tent site or place to set up your own camper. Very centrally located for access to a variety of the area's outdoor hot spots. "The Finns", a local restaurant bar has good dining and a friendly atmosphere and is located directly across the street from the site. There is also great year-round fishing & hunting opportunities in the area as well as extensive groomed trail systems and atv riding. There are plenty of small comforts available to you in this setting, but be sure to pack your own sleeping bags and pillows for this trip.

Glamping in Lake Superior guide

One of the biggest freshwater lakes in the world, Lake Superior offers some of the best camping in the United States. Clear, cold waters lap at rocky beaches backed by dense forests. Charming small towns welcome visitors. In the evening, the stars and aurora borealis light up the light pollution-free sky.

The best part? The coastline is remote and relatively unpopulated, so you can enjoy the lake in peace. It stretches from the Canada border and across northern Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan, creating an endless selection of campsites.

If you’re starting in Minnesota, drive from Duluth and up the North Shore toward Canada. The snowmelt brings a series of waterfalls to life in April and May. At Split Rock State Park, you can camp near a historic lighthouse and bike the Gitchi-Gami State Trail. Near Grand Marais, watch surfers navigate enormous waves in the November gales.

If islands are your thing, Lake Superior has you covered. Glide over crystal-clear waters and under tree-covered cliffs in the Apostle Islands in Wisconsin. In the winter, you can walk across the frozen lake to sparkling ice caves. Or, hop a seaplane or boat to the remote Isle Royale National Park. Here, a stunning trail network takes you over rocky ridges to backcountry campsites.

For some serious small-town friendliness, head for Copper Harbor in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. From your Lake Superior campsite, you’re moments from a killer network of mountain biking and hiking trails. In the fall, the changing leaves rival the East Coast for grandeur (bonus: no crowds). Winter brings cross-country skiing and snowboarding—nearby Mount Bohemia has the highest vertical drop in the Midwest.

Summer is the best time for camping on Lake Superior. Take advantage of the sunny days to paddle Pictured Rocks or see the raging Tahquamenon Falls in Michigan. Fall and spring bring crisp temperatures and low crowd levels.

The intense Lake Superior winters aren’t for the faint of heart. If you have a warm sleeping bag or an RV, however, the cold is worthwhile. Spend your days cross-country skiing, snowboarding, and ice fishing. Then, pop into a local brewery to have a pint with the hardy locals.
