Voyageurs began placing hazard markers and other buoys within park boundaries on April 20, 2017. Park staff will make every effort to place buoys in a timely manner for the upcoming 2017 summer season.
Voyageurs National Park encourages boaters to use extreme caution when traveling waterways due to low water levels. Low water levels may expose hazards that are not typically visible or marked during the summer or higher water-level months. Boaters should remember throughout the summer that various hazards may develop without warning and may not be properly marked.
As a reminder, Lamplighters from the United States Coast Guard (USCG) will soon be repairing and placing navigational aids in the park’s four main lakes – Rainy, Kabetogama, Namakan, and Sand Point Lakes.
