North Shore Camping

We recently took a trip with friends to George Crosby Manitou State Park on the North Shore. Our campsite was a 3 mile hike in and a short hike from the Manitou River, which we visited first thing in the morning to wash with refreshingly-ice-cold water, sit on the sun-soaked rocks and pump our water for the day.

The weather was nice, the scenery gorgeous, the campfires warm and the hiking invigorating. It certainly reinforced all our jogging efforts. We couldn't resist stopping at Lake Superior on our way home to see the fog rolling in.
