International Falls, MN – During the shutdown of the federal government due to the lapse of appropriations, national parks will remain as accessible as possible while still following all applicable laws and procedures. Park roads and trails at Voyageurs National Park will remain accessible to visitors, but emergency and rescue services will be limited.

There will be no NPS-provided visitor services at Voyageurs National Park, including public information, restrooms, trash collection, and facilities and roads maintenance, including plowing and snowmobile trail grooming.

Because of the federal government shutdown, NPS social media and websites are not being monitored or updated and may not reflect current conditions. All park programs have been canceled, including: the Winter Event Series, at this time.
