Good place to get information about Voyageurs National Park. Easy to get to. Very close to the Kabetogama Visitor Center. Nice walking trails.

There are multiple entry points to the Park. If traveling North on Highway 53 take the time and drive in. The Finnish log visitor's center itself is worth seeing. The nearby short trails give immediate access to the wilderness.

Went on a day trip from Duluth to celebrate the 2016 NP Centennial. Gorgeous day with easy hikes to beautiful vistas. Looking forward to coming back and exploring on a houseboat.

We had just enough time to see one visitors center in Voyageurs, and chose this one. The staff was so kind and helpful. We did get great views of the lakes, beaver ponds, and shoreline. We were amazed at the number of people fishing. There...More
