Start Exploring the Rainy Lake Area

Headquarters to Voyageurs National Park


There is so much more than World Class Fishing here in Minnesota’s Vacation Paradise.

Rainy Lake and Voyageurs National Park have a lot to offer. Rainy Lake is an excellent fishery for walleye, smallmouth bass, northern pike and crappie. Voyageurs National Park provides day use site, campsites, houseboat mooring sites, hiking trails, back-country camping and much more.

International Falls and Ranier are the communities that call Rainy Lake home, and share the connecting Rainy River, which flows west to Baudette. Rainy River tributaries the Little Fork and Big Fork offer additional water recreation.

Remember that our National Park was established because of the spectacular scenery, rich natural resources and vibrant history, making it well worth the visit any time of year. The Rainy Lake Visitor Center is a great place to start. Learn about recreational opportunities, history of the area and wildlife that make this boreal forest home.

We are the gateway to Voyageurs National Park, Minnesota’s only water-based national park.
