Falls, MN – Voyageurs National Park Rangers want to remind visitors to use caution when visiting the park. Heavy rains have increased water levels over the past week in northern Minnesota.
According to the Park service, all docks within Voyageurs National Park are submerged, extremely slippery, and some campsites have water encroaching on them. Floating debris and additional rock hazards can be found throughout the four main lakes in the park.
Due to hazardous conditions, park personnel have closed a total of 24 campsites on the park’s new reservation system through June 30, 2014. All other sites are open.
The closed sites are as follows:
