Voyageurs National Park

Superintendent Name: 
Kate Miller
Voyageurs is a water-based park where you must take to the water to fully experience the lakes, islands and shorelines of the park. Nearly 200 years ago voyageurs paddled birch bark canoes full of animal pelts and trade goods through this area on their way to Lake Athabaska, Canada. Today, people explore the park by houseboat, motorboat, canoe and kayak.
