Google says that's 21 hours of driving and 1300 miles a night or two of camping is still over 400 miles a day with no stops

Your plans seems flawed I camped 5 nights between Minneapolis and Sault Ste. Marie

I agree about the suggestion to wait until spring.

But seriously, while I can't offer any tips on the Northern side of that trip, I can assure you that the UP is fabulous. At least in warm weather. I'd plan on spending several days there and seeing the sights. The rivers, the woods, the waterfalls are all great. Not much in the way of cities and nightlife, but a campers' paradise.

thank you WYNbob---I appreciate the links...I am aware of the distance, and perhaps didn't explain myself clear enough. We want to camp in Canada along the way to Niagara, camp in Niagara, and will camp in UP Michigan on way home. I was looking for advise on Canada and UP Michigan....and of course we are not going now.

There are literally hundreds of beautiful places to visit in the UP. Lake of the Clouds in the Porcupine Mountains, Copper Harbor in the Keweenaw, Bond Falls and Agate Falls, Baraga State Park, Pictured Rocks NP near Munising, Fayette near Indian Lake SP, Oswald Bear Ranch, Tahquamenon Falls, Whitefish Pointe, Soo Locks, Mackinac Island. That's just the tip of the iceberg. How many days you want to spend and what do you like to do?

We enjoyed staying in Fifty Point Conservation Area for a visit to Niagara Falls, Ontario. In fact, we are going right back there in June of this year. It is so relaxing to be outside the tourist area that it is worth the 40 minute drive to the Falls. (estimate on time, but it is not in the immediate area)
