Thanks...it is a great day ride, especially the 60 between Superior and Claypool...

I did that a few years back. The road out north of the lake wasn't bad, but the road south of the lake was a "paved" road worse than any dirt road I've ever been on.

Is there any camping in the area of the dam ????

Thanks !!

It's been a couple of years since I rode by, and I don't know if there is any designated camping, but the south road is pretty remote, so there may be areas there where you can camp. The north road runs through population so unless there is a designated camping area, I don't remember much that you could camp on. My memory could be faulty though.
