A suggestion. Penn lake park in Marathon will probably be closed but they have a large parking lot and a dump site, maybe no water but you could dump. Call the town office, they look after the park and can give detail. Look up town of Marathon on the web.

Just curious; why make the trip?


It's close to home and I really enjoy the Northern Great Lakes area. I've driven west through Duluth several times but never turned North towards Thunder Bay.

Why take the trip? Why not. I have never needed a reason to take a trip. The area north of Lake Superior is beautiful. Take the time to stop and see the waterfalls at Gooseberry Falls, Kakabeka Falls, Magpie Falls (near WaWa). Take a look at lighthouses such as Split Rock in Minn.

Heading North and East from Thunderbay tomorrow, Garmin says its 500 km to Wawa. Would have liked to stop mid-way around Marathon but can't find anything open.

I'm sure I could find someplace to park, but I wouldn't feel comfortable unhitching the trailer outside of a campground,
