Coming up early to play and learn in the current of the St. Mary’s River? (Not as early as the guys pictured above, but before the Munising portion of the Gales?) Then you’ll need a place to stay on Wednesday night.

Fortunately, lodging options have also improved since the days of birchbark canoes. Here are some we recommend because of their proximity to our put-in, but there are many more throughout Sault St. Marie, MI


Mid City Motel (906) 632-6832. About $55/night

Budget Host Crestview Inn (906) 635-5213. About $79/night

Skyline Motel  (906) 632-3393. About $65/night


Aune-Osborn Campground is right on the river. (906) 632-3268. About $32/night

Soo Locks Campground is also right on the river. (906) 632-3191. About $32/night

Also, once again, we have a discount room rate in Munising at the Pictured Rocks Inn & Suites. $90/night will get you a room with two queen beds and a view of the Gales HQ.
