Camping at Voyageurs National Park

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.

Three wooden stairs lead to a tent pad with a large blue and green tent surrounded by trees.
