All campsites in Voyageurs are accessible only by watercraft.
All Frontcountry and Backcountry campsites are water-based, require a permit, and can only be accessed by boat. Most campsites in the park are Frontcountry sites, meaning they are directly accessible by boat. 15 of our campsites are in the Backcountry, meaning the trail head is only accessible by water before you start your hike in.
Types of Campsites and Amenities Available
Here's a breakdown of all the campsite types Voyageurs National Park offers.
If you are looking for camper (RV) camping, car camping, or drive-up camping, there are also private and public campsites located in the surrounding communities outside the park's boundaries.
COVID-19 Updates for Camping
Notice to Backcountry Users: All backcountry reservations for lakes that offer canoes must be made at least 4 days in advance to allow staff ample time to make key pick-up arrangements while park buildings are closed. A park ranger will reach out to the email address and/or phone number associated with your reservation 4-7 days prior to your trip to provide key pick-up instructions.
