There's a video on the basics of the park, which was informative. The park rangers were able to give us good recommendations of where to hike nearby.

We did not know that the visitors center was closed today. We explored down by the water. What a beautiful setting! Breathtaking! We drive around the park and noticed quite a few deer roaming near the road. Numerous beaver lodges were found on the property....More

Good place to get information about Voyageurs National Park. Easy to get to. Very close to the Kabetogama Visitor Center. Nice walking trails.

There are multiple entry points to the Park. If traveling North on Highway 53 take the time and drive in. The Finnish log visitor's center itself is worth seeing. The nearby short trails give immediate access to the wilderness.

We swung by the Ash River Visitor Center on our way out to Kettle Falls from Lake Kabetagoma on a Wednesday. Unfortunately, it was not open. From what we saw, it was clean, had public boat access, and included some picnic tables. Overall, nothing to...More
