A third of this national park's area is made up of water, particularly from four large lakes, including Rainy Lake, Kabetogama Lake, Namakan Lake, and Sand Point Lake. This means the main body of the park is only accessible by boat during the summer months, while in winter it can be accessed by snowmobile, ski, or snowshoe.

A variety of wildlife also live within the national park, including black bears, moose, wolves, white-tailed deer, foxes, weasels, river otters, and beavers (just to name a few).

Things to Do in Voyageurs National Park

Despite this national park being made up of so many lakes, there are still plenty of activities for visitors to enjoy, whether they want to get out on the water, or explore their surroundings on land.


There are more than 27 miles of trails located within Voyageurs National Park, including those accessible by either vehicle or boat.

One of the most popular land trails is the Ethno-botanical Garden Trail, an easy 0.25 mile loop that can also be explored with snowshoes in winter. It allows visitors to step back in time and experience a traditional Ojibwe Indian camp, along with a gorgeous native plant garden.

Additionally, Little American Island is a popular boat trip hike, as it allows visitors to explore the history of gold mining activities on Little American Gold Mine Island, where they can also see mine shafts, tailings, piles and machinery still left from the 1890s gold rush.

A full list of available hiking trails and destinations can be found on the park’s website.

Take a Guided Boat Tour

Most boat tours depart from the Visitor Centers at Rainy Lake and Kabetogama Lake, primarily between June to September when the weather is at its best.

One such tour crosses Rainy Lake in search of active eagle nests, before taking guests to Little American Island to learn about the 1890's Rainy Lake gold rush. Another boat tour lets visitors explore the historic Kettle Falls Hotel and Dam, where they’re then able to spend 2 hours on land to dine at the hotel, enjoy a picnic lunch, and wander around.

For those wishing to hop in a canoe, as opposed to a tour boat, there are also canoe programs available for both of these destinations.

Winter Activities

Just because the national park gets covered in snow, doesn’t mean there isn’t fun to be had during the winter months!

Visitors have the opportunity enjoy the spectacular sights of Voyageurs National Park by snowmobile, on cross country skis, in an automobile on the ice road, on snowshoes, or even in ice-fishing houses. How fun does that sound?

Snowshoes are available for hire from the Visitor Centers free of charge, while cross country skis and skiing equipment can also be hired from the Rainy Lake Visitor Center at no extra cost.


There are a wide range of camping options available to visitors, however all park campsites are only accessible by watercraft. These include 175 sites which are classified as either tent, houseboat, or day-use sites.

There’s also many rules and regulations surrounding these various camping options, so those planning to stay overnight in the national park should first visit the camping section on the Voyageurs National Park website.
