What to see between Saulte Ste. Marie and Ottawa

What is there to see, explore from Sault Ste. Marie and Ottawa. Any good places to stay at in a 40' MH?
Thanks

Are you going through Canada or through Michigan? Check out the Circle Lake Routes or tours, either shore of lake Huron is interesting.

Agawa Canyon is a very nice area, it's an hour north of the Soo.

SSM to Ottawa

Check out Science North in Sudbury and the NORAD co plexus at the airbase. Both great tours.

I've done that route two years in a row in a 38ft motorhome. Im usually in a rush to get to Ottawa, but I have stopped in North Bay a couple of times, there's a nice train museum by the shore of the lake there, some good coffee shops and gift buying opportunities. As another poster said the 2-lane road leaves a lot to be desired for a "Queen's Highway", some rough spots, but one of its nicer things are the rest areas along the way. I highly recommend visiting as many rest areas as you can, some of those are just gorgeous and even though they say that no overnight parking is allowed I've done it many times and no one says anything. (Ironic because all along the highway there are signs to rest and take breaks - Dont Drive Tired type signs - yet you get to the Rest Area and it says no overnight parking, go figure!). For overnight, I usually pick a rest area to visit later in the day to avoid a prolonged stay and leave first thing in the morning. Many of those rest areas have trails, are by rivers or interesting points. You can almost go rest area to rest area and take 2-3 days to get to Ottawa that way. One thing i highly advise is to not stray too far from the highway as the roads can get worse and tight, especially for a big rig.

This year I finally did the Toronto highway route, and I have to say that my days of doing the Soo (Sault-Ste.Marie) route may have ended. Im in LOVE with the 4 lane highway from Port Huron/Sarnia to Ottawa - just nice easy driving, dedicated on-highway (like islands along the highway so you dont have to exit into a town) with fueling and eateries (including Starbucks!) and large parking spots for trucks, RVs, etc. Avoid the toll sections around Toronto to save a few bucks but its all freeway from Chicago to Ottawa. If the Queens Highway up north ever became a 4-lane highway I'd re-think it, but given the geography up there (canyons, boulders, forest) I doubt that will happen within my lifetime.

I realize this is a late response, but hope it helps. Best of luck!
