International Falls, MN:One of the park's campsites (N62 Sexton Island) that was affected by temporary closures in May to protect bald eagle nesting pairs is now reopened for public use.

The site is now available to be reserved at recreation.gov.

The other sites that were closed for Bald Eagle nesting in May remain closed. The closed sites are:

  • K3 Camel Back Island, Kabetogama
  • K11 Happy Landing, Kabetogama
  • N11 Hamilton Island, Namakan Lake
  • R45 Skipper Rock Houseboat Site, Rainy Lake

VNP natural resource managers follow the conservation management actions of the Bald Eagle and Golden Eagle Management Act (16 U.S.C. 668-668c, 1940 as amended). Each year since 1992, the park has temporarily closed the land and water areas around active bald eagle nests to visitor use during their critical nesting periods.
