I did part of what you are doing last year..
Just wanted to throw this out.. I crossed into Canada at Kingston, Ontario. The ferry takes you over to Wolf Island.
There is a yoga retreat on the east end of the island. They let me set up the tent there, and cook dinner down by the lake.
They have a great place to swim. Then you take another ferry over the next morning to Kingston.
It was just a cool spot.
Also, if you are running this counter clockwise (I did) get a campsite before you get to Thunder Bay. I couldn't find a campground in Thunder Bay, or south of there. I ended up on the shore of Superior back in the US after a really long day on the bike. I wish I would have stopped before Thurnder Bay..
I'll be following along. Have a great trip.
You've got a place to Stay here in St Louis if you need it.
