Voyageurs National Park Houseboat Rentals
A houseboat adventure is a truly extraordinary way to explore the United States' largest waterways park: Voyageurs National Park. Created by Congress in 1971, this park in northern Minnesota encompasses land and water areas which have no roads and initially was designated for canoeists.
Our houseboats have access to Crane Lake, Lake Kabetogama, Lake Namakan and Kettle Falls in Voyageurs National Park. What better way to recreate the route of the hardy Voyageur trappers and traders than with a houseboat excursion? The park stretches more than 100 miles along the Canada-Minnesota border, running through Namaken Lake, Sand Point Lake, Crane Lake, and includes all of Minnesota's famed walleye lake, Kabetogama, in addition to more than one million acres of roadless wilderness.
From our Ash River base, you can visit the entire southern part of the park from Western Kabetogama Lake to Eastern Crane. The water in this region is fed by springs, so it's cool, clear and pure enough to drink straight from the lakes. The water remains warm enough for water skiing and swimming in the vacation period of July and August.
