Tent Camping Reservations for the 2019 Summer Season Open November 15

Overnight tent camping reservations for the 2019 season at Voyageurs National Park will become available on November 15, 2018 at 9 am CST.

Visitors to www.recreation.gov will experience a new and improved website design that is more contemporary and user friendly. However, due to the large volume of facilities being serviced by recreation.gov, houseboat reservations in Voyageurs National Park will not go live until April 2019.

Park staff encourage visitors who wish to camp in the park to make a reservation as soon as they know their plans. Visitors may make reservations by going online at www.recreation.gov or by calling the National Call Center at (877) 444-6777.

Please note that cancellation policies have changed in the hope that more campers who are unable to make their trip will cancel their reservation to make that site available to other visitors.  

Overnight tent visitors may find a summary of the reservation program and policies at the following link -- https://www.nps.gov/voya/planyourvisit/tent-camping.htm.
