Voyageurs National Park

Voyageurs National Park


Sleep under the stars in one of over 200 designated campsites in Voyageurs National Park. Be serenaded by loons, and listen for the chance to hear the howl of a wolf. A free permit is required for overnight stays in the park. You can get your permit at a park visitor center during regular business hours, or self-register at one of the permit stations located near all park boat launch facilities.

All developed campsites located within Voyageurs National Park are "boat-in" campsites. Most campsites in the park are available only on a "first-come, first-served" basis, with the exception of designated group campsites which may be reserved (fee applies). There are drive-up campsites located just outside of the park at the Woodenfrog State Forest Campground on Kabetogama Lake and near the community of Ash River. Call (218) 365-7229 for more information, or click here to visit the state forest website.

There are several hike-in campsites on the Kabetogama Peninsula, but a boat is required to access the trailheads.

Camping in Voyageurs National Park is limited to 14 days at a specific site between May 15th and September 15th, and a maximum of 30 days in a calendar year.
