Established in 1975, Voyageurs National Park is a “water park” in Minnesota popular for refreshing water recreation and rewarding outdoor pursuits. This 341 sq. mile national park features interconnected water highways that present campers and visitors with opportunities to enjoy swimming, boating, and kayaking.
Although more than 40% of Voyageurs National Park is water, this national park which shares its northern boundary with Canada features three visitor centers that are accessible by cars. All the campsites in the park are only accessible by watercraft, however RV campers can make use of two public campgrounds located just outside the park, to the west and south – Woodenfrog Campground and Ash River Campground.
As you settle in at the park, take your pick of what to enjoy, be it hiking, ranger programs or boat tours. The unique situation of this park, within the transition zone between temperate deciduous forests and boreal forests, means that there are plenty of resplendent flora within the park, as well as beautiful wildlife to observe. If you visit the park in winter, there are plenty of activities to keep you going – snowmobiling, snowshoeing, ice fishing, sledding, and many more.
