We are looking at a summer trip to the North Shore of Minnesota. We live in west-central MN and would like to drive to Duluth and arrive on Saturday, July 17. We plan to go to the airshow on Sunday, July 18. After touring Duluth a bit, we would like to make our way up to Grand Portage stopping at interesting sites along the way. From there we would like to make our way over to see the Soudan Underground Mine (Ely area) and then the Hill Annex Mine (Grand Rapids/Hibbing area), lastly we would like to spend some time at Itasca State Park.

If we were going to do all this in a week so we could arrive at our home (about 2-3 hours from Itasca) on Sunday, July 25, where would you recommend we stay and for how long. You don't have to recommend certain campgrounds unless you'd like to, but even a general area like "around Grand Marais for two nights" would be helpful. I'd like to make reservations now but I just don't have a good feel for how much time to spend where.

We have 4.5 and 7 year old children so we need to keep in mind activities they will enjoy as well. We will be pulling a 33 foot 5th wheel.

Thank you!

Hi again wal1,

Sorry, I somehow missed the fact that you also wanted to visit the Hibbing/Ely/Grand Rapids area and their points of interest. The only park I have stayed at in that area has been the Fortune Bay Casino RV Park in Tower (between Ely and Virginia) because the parks in the the other towns did not have what I like in a park. This casino park is part of a large resort complex (casino, fishing and boating facilities, RV park, golf course) on Lake Vermillion. There are no sewers at the sites but there is a dump station. Further west, I have have stayed at the KOA in Bemidji several times and have always enjoyed their facilities (Full hook-ups, cable, WIFI, pool, playground, family atmosphere). There is another park in the Bemidji area that sounds decent. That leaves you just hours from home on Sunday if you stay in Bemidji on Saturday.

So, to revise my first schedule: 2 nights in the Duluth area, 2 nights at Grand Marais, 1-2 nights in the Ely to Grand Rapids area, and 1-2 nights int Bemidji area.

Again, sorry for misunderstanding your original post. I hope this revised information is of some help.
