You will get more help if you turn off your caps lock. That is considered shouting and is very rude.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

First, hello and a warm welcome to the RV Forum.   We are from Minnesota and can make some suggestions for Minnesota and Wisconsin.  What size is your rig? 

BTW (By the Way) Lake Superior in September can be gorgeous. We hosted a rally near Grand Marais, MN last September.  We might host another one this fall nearTwo Harbors, MN  It's always fun to meet up with other forum members.

Couple of years ago we did same trip.
I can look up more places we stayed if you like but the one that I thought best was Neys Provincial Park.
They have an area that will handle larger coaches, there was 30A power and a water faucet serving the area (make sure water tank full and grey/black empty).
Park was spectacular and the view out our front window was Lake Superior.

We did the entire Lake Superior Circle Tour two years ago.  I have a 5th wheel and another friend followed us around in his truck camper.
Grand Marais was great - huge camping area, but book in advance.
Don't miss Thunder Bay and the peninsula that juts out into the lake and looks back on the city.  There's an overlook that should not be missed.
Pancake Bay on the east side is a wonderful park and the Voyager's Cafe is a great place to eat.

The Provincial Parks are crowded in the summer, but we were always able to get two sites if we booked a few days ahead. 
Bring LOTS of extension cords.  In one park we needed 100 feet of cord to reach the outlets! :o

If you're doing the Upper Peninsula of MI part of the loop don't miss Copper Harbor.

Oops!

Don't miss Fort William in Thunder Bay!  We spent two days there and loved it!

First of all, the North Shore in Minnesota is loaded with state parks and campgrounds.  Be aware they get very full towards the end of Sept during fall color.  After Labor Day, I don't think you will need reservations as things quiet down.  Weekends could be slightly different.  You don't say how much time you are taking, but there is a lot to see so enjoy your trip.

No help on RV parks but will give this advice:

Take coats and gloves and hats.

Lake Superior is the biggest and deepest and COLDEST lake of all the Great Lakes.
It can snow in Sept especially if on the Canadian side of the lake.

Take bug spray too.

Since you didn't say where you are from, I thought you might need to know this as some people
think it should be warm in Sept yet (and it can be) but very often it turns cold in the north much sooner then in
States that are just a little bit south of the Big Lake.

Hope you have a great time.

I'll second what RedandSilver said about cold.

Used to go camping with my dads side of the family in July and August halfway up the Michigan mitten. I've woken up to frost on the tent.

I've been looking into Lambs resort in Schroeder,MN. Looks great and is right on lake superior.

It's a great spot, but do get a reservation there.  Because of location they fill up and some people book a year in advance.  Just 2 miles further north is Temperance State Park, also right on the lake but look at a reservation there also.  They have 2 campgrounds, one low and on the lake, the other higher elevation but still on the lake.

Many who want to see the N Shore will stay at the midway point and do daily trips.  From Duluth to the Canadian border is about 140 miles and Schroeder is at about mile maker 75.

Sounds like fun.  I have been wanting to do a UP trip. May have to work that into a more extended trip. ;)
