Floodwaters Retreating, Campsites And Trails Reopening At Voyageurs National Park

After a very, very wet start to summer, things are starting to dry out at Voyageurs National Park in Minnesota, enough so that crews are reopening campsites and trails that had been closed.

The following campsites and trails will reopen Monday:

* Kabetogama Lake:

All campsites

Happy Landing (K11) continues to be closed through August 1 due to eagles nesting

* Namakan Lake:

All campsites

Hammer Bay South closed through the 2014 season due to necessary long-term repairs

* Sand Point Lake:

All campsites

* Backcountry:

All campsites

All day-use

All trails

The waters on Rainy Lake continue daily to recede. However, water levels are still two to three feet above park docks so campsites with docks remain closed until further notice. Please note, there are more than 130 small and large campsites and houseboat sites open and ready for visitors on Rainy Lake.

Visitors who wish to rebook reservations for campsites or backcountry boat rentals may do so starting Monday at www.recreation.gov.
