The most important element in Voyageurs National Park is water. The park exists because of it. The early settlers (both the Indian Tribes and the white settlers that followed) used the waters for transportation and food. They used the numerous islands for hunting, for shelter, and in many cases for illegal activities. Much of the park is still a wilderness area that looks much like it did when these settlers first arrived. Voyageurs has a grand total of over 218,000 acres of which about 84,000 is water. There are over 500 islands and a total of 655 miles of shoreline.
Although you really need a boat and time to explore the waterways and islands to fully enjoy this park, there are a variety of historical sites and museums to visit to learn about the areas history.
In addition to boating, fishing and other waterborne sports there are some nice hiking trails and abundant wildlife to enjoy.
