Voyageurs National Park surrounds and encompasses Lake Kabetogama. On Kab, we have around 20-25 family resorts and many have there own games, water toys, beaches, ect. But if you're not the fisherman or woman of the group...think about these things:

1. Visitor Centers- Voyageurs National Park has some great activities and information at all of there visitor centers- Kabetogama, Ash River, or Rainy Lake...each is different, but fun to see. Most boat tours start at Kab or Rainy Lake. Ash River visitor center is my favorite as it is an old resort/lodge with beautiful logs, fire place, and simple beauty.

 

2. Hiking trails- If you're on Kabetogama, Echo bay trail is 3 connected trail loops of varied lengths. Dense woods, but good trail and nice parking area. Very seldom used, can get buggy if your mid summer months. Ash River has several trails off the road to the visitor center...Blind Ash Bay loop is amazing, and the view over Blind Ash Bay is unbelievable...this trail is about 2.5 miles but well worth it...other trails Beaver Pond overlook, and ??? (I forgot the name) but are fun short trails ideal for kids or elderly people...simple, well graded...worth the time!

 

3. Vince Shute Bear Sanctuary- west of Orr, Mn...about 35-45 minute drive from Kabetogama. Fun family outing. See black bears roam around as you stand on elevated deck and learn about habits and more. The later you go in the season, generally the more bear that will be feeding at the sanctuary as they bulk up for winter...can be 40-50 bears wondering around. Kids love it! https://www.americanbear.org/

"Day Use" sites can be a day trip destination! In Voyageurs National Park you may see area's designated "Day Use Only"...these typically are nice beaches, fire rings, and picnic tables. I write this knowing many people have never set foot on the Day Use sites...they truly are ideal for lunch or a quick swim. Remember, the way the park rules state: No overnighting on Day Use sites, no houseboats on campsites, no camping on houseboat sites...

 

Day Use sites are used for just that...a perfect small site to come play at your own little beach, enjoy lunch on an island, or explore and conquer the wilderness for an afternoon of blueberry picking or hiking. Go explore a Day Use site next time your at Kabetogama. My favorite Day Use sites are Moxie Island, or Shoepack Beach (near Lost Bay).

    Crane lake hosts an annual snowmobile radar run and general winter fun event this weekend! I realize its a bit late, but snow upon more snow has created an epic winter playground. One of the activities to play in winter is snowmobiling and Voyageurs area offers amazing trails both on the lake and in the woods. This weekend (March 2 & 3) Crane Lake hosts there annual radar run and event. Truly amazing, fun for everyone. Check it out: https://www.visitcranelake.com/news-events/annual-power-boat-races/
