FreeNo entrance pass required
An entrance pass is not required to access Voyageurs National Park.

Voyageurs National Park does not have an entrance fee. However, there are fees for camping, houseboat permits, tour boats, and special use permits.
All tent campsites within Voyageurs National Park require a reservation fee and nightly amenity fees.
Houseboat Permit Fees
All houseboats, sailboats, and cabin cruisers (defined as registered vessels that contain sleeping facilities, cooking and food storage facilities, and a no-discharge toilet) require a permit for overnights in Voyageurs National Park.
Tour Boat Fees
Ranger-led boat tours require a fee at Voyageurs National Park.
Your Fees Benefit the Park
The fees you may pay when visiting Voyageurs National Park make a difference! We participate in the Congressionally-authorized Federal Recreation Lands Enhancement Act (FLREA). In Voyageurs, 96 percent of the fee revenue collected in the park stays here to help fund park projects related to the fee program.
