Paging SE MN riders
My wife and I are looking to do a 4-5 day mini-tour in Wisconsin/Minnesota next moth. I was fairly familiar with most of the route 25 years ago, but I'm sure some things have changed. The section that I am not familiar with is from the end of the Root River Trail in Fountain, MN to Wabasha, MN. We would like to stay on mostly paved but quiet and scenic roads, preferably with at least a little shoulder. A little gravel is OK, but we'd rather not be on gravel for miles and miles. It is my wife's first fully loaded tour so I want to make it an enjoyable experience for her. I'm also curious about campgrounds. Are most campgrounds open in mid-May or do they usually open closer to Memorial Day? Any advice is appreciated.
