Our original plan was to camp at the Pattison S.P C.G using electrical hookups, the park has only 17 electrical sites and by the time I new the dates it was all reserved…but as we say “changes can be for the best” ,I have found a C.G /Marina in Fond Du Lac MN just South of Duluth on the lake,it has full hookups,WiFi a great view and excellent location for hiking in Pattison and Amnicon State parks .
We settled down disconnected the truck just before the rain started and we spend the whole doing things in the trailer.
We awoke to a beautiful clear but hot and humid morning as I was due for the truck service so we drove to the Ford dealership in Duluth,made an appointment for the following day and continued to Pattison S.P .
The park has a lake with a beach,spotless bathrooms/changing rooms ,picnic area and two waterfalls-Big Manitou Falls (the highest in Wisconsin) and the Little Manitou Falls (Little?? I do not think so)
To reach the the Big Manitou it takes only a short easy walk from the parking lot but impossible to get to the bottom.
To get to the Little Manitou Falls it takes a hike for 3 Miles round trip,but worth the effort.
Now at the end of summer they still look “strong” but imagine them in the Spring when they are in full swing…..
At the we saw a beautiful dragon fly that gave me a tough time ,he just did not stay still,finally my patience paid off.
On the way home we stopped in Wal-Mart for supplies ,my wife had a short list of things to get but we pulled out with a full trolley…does it also happens to you???
We again barley made it before it started pouring rain…I like the arrangement -rain during the night and clear skies during the day ,hope it stays this way.
