Voyageurs Park 2023 reservations open now
Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness reservations open on Jan. 25
INTERNATIONAL FALLS — It may seem early to be thinking about open water boating and camping in Voyageurs National Park next summer, but reservations opened Tuesday for all of the park’s hundreds of boat-to camping and houseboat sites.
Park staff encourage visitors who wish to stay overnight in the park to make a reservation as soon as they know their plans. Visitors may make reservations online at recreation.gov or by calling the National Call Center at 877-444-6777.
There is no lottery for Voyageurs sites, but it’s first-come, first-served, and many popular dates and sites will be gobbled up quickly.
All income generated from overnight fees stays at Voyageurs National Park. These fees are used to enhance the visitor experience by funding site cleaning and maintenance, and to improve amenities such as tent pads, docks, bear-proof food lockers, privies, picnic tables, fire rings, mooring aids, trails, backcountry infrastructure and interpretive media at visitor destination sites.
A reminder that permits for the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness for 2023 dates will become available starting Jan. 25.
