Where to stay in Voyageurs National Park

To stay inside Voyageurs National Park, you'll need not just a tent but also a boat, kayak, or canoe since the only practical access to the park is via water. If you do have a vessel, you'll have numerous campsites scattered throughout the park to choose from. Many provide picnic tables, fire pits, and food storage lockers, and some also include vaulted toilets. If you're without a boat, or you simply prefer creature comforts, choose one of the many establishments along Lake Kabetogama. The areas around Tom Cod Bay and the Lake Kabetogama Visitors Center feature rustic lakeside lodges and outdoor resorts, many of which are geared toward anglers. International Falls to the west of the park represents the area's population center, and here you'll find numerous hotels and motels.
