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

Summer brings the opportunity to hike, picnic, canoe or just lounge around on a beach. Bird and wildlife watchers will find plenty of opportunities. The newly completed Rainy Lake Recreation Trail follows the south shores of Rainy River and Rainy Lake from International Falls to the Voyageurs National Park Rainy Lake Visitor Center 12 miles to the east on Black Bay. Hike, bike or roller blade and check out the newest section from Minnesota 11 to the Visitor Center, it’s really very nice. There are boat tours that include stopping at the historic site of one of the gold mines on Rainy Lake. Recreation on the water is what our National Park is all about.

If your idea of recreation is pulling in some fish, you should know that Rainy Lake and Rainy River are excellent fisheries. Walleye, smallmouth bass, crappie, northern pike and sturgeon are the most popular game fish. Mix in some stops at picnic areas, hiking trails or historic sites and you make for a full day of fun.

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