Established in 1975, Voyageurs National Park is located near International Falls, Minnesota.
The park itself is named after French-Canadian fur traders known as voyageurs who were the first European settlers to frequent the area. They used the waterways of the area to both catch the animals from which they derived the fur from as well as a means of transportation to get those furs to market.
Over 500 islands are located within the park boundaries of Voyageurs. According, a majority of the park is only accessible by boat including the 200 plus park camping sites. Those who would like to camp but do not have a boat can take advantage of two state parks located adjacent to the national park which have vehicle access.
Visitors will enjoy the moderate summer months with average temperatures in the 60 to 80 degree range. Winter temperatures, however, can be quite harsh.
