Welcome. Diane is going to do magic with the electric issue. Do you guys carry cube heaters that run on our 110? We will be sharing electricity.
Not sure what route you will be driving but I wanted to point out a lovely campground on Hwy 2, just west of Grand Rapids, MN.
Pokegama Dam is a Corps of Engineers campground. It has 19 electrical
sites. When you come past I believe all will be non reservable. They quit reservations about now and become first come first serve until snow closes the road. This campground is on the Mississippi River and right next to the highway. there are some trees between the hwy and campground. We live so close that we have never camped there, so I am not sure about the road noise. If you do not want to camp there be sure to make it a rest stop as it is lovely for scenery.
Regarding hiking. If you could give me some idea what distances and what type of difficulty you are comfortable with I will have recommendations for you. We may not be able to meet, unsure of our health, but I will be sure to have a hiking info ready for you at your camp site. Also, if you have never been up the North Shore and you want to consider that during your stay let me know because you then need to know the best places there to hike.
Oh. Again depending on what route you take. If you are in the slow, smell the roses drive mind, there is a very pretty stretch of highway north of Grand Rapids. Hwy 38 twists and curves up and down over the continental divide through very pretty (though stressed this year) maple trees. It is not a fast road. It is paved but there are not passing opportunities for fast drivers. This road would enter Grand Rapids east of the Pokegama Dam.
Have a safe journey.
