Voyageurs National Park Seeking Public Comments for Mukooda Lake Development Environmental Assessment

The National Park Service seeks public comments regarding an Environmental Assessment (EA) to improve the facilities and add a hiking trail at the Mukooda Lake small campground in Voyageurs National Park.  

The EA evaluates the potential impacts of modifying and improving the small campground at Mukooda Lake, adding day-use facilities, adding dock space, and adding a new hiking trail. The existing campground is poorly designed, is threatening sensitive resources, and there are currently no hiking trails serving visitors at the eastern end of the park.

Voyageurs National Park Association is a partner with the National Park Service on this project providing funding and volunteer support. Project plans balance sustainable recreation opportunities with natural and archaeological resource protection. Please join us in voicing our support for this effort.

The public is welcome to review the EA and provide comment on the National Park Service’s website. A hard copy can be requested by calling park headquarters at (218) 283-6600. The public can submit comments online, by email to, or by mail to: Voyageurs National Park, 360 Highway 11 East, International Falls, MN 56649. 

Comments must be postmarked or submitted by February 15, 2019.
