Outfitting with Experts

The area around Camp Voyageur conveys the power of nature. Volcanic action first formed the region. Icy glaciers receded thousands of years ago leaving behind a land dotted with countless lakes, rivers and towering cliffs. From our dock, the vast Canadian Shield stretches east to Lake Superior and north to Hudson Bay. It is truly a one of a kind environment.

Whether you’re looking to take a trip with friends and family, hire an expert wilderness guide to accompany your adventure, attend one of our guided trips, or just spend some time on the Voyageur peninsula, camp is just the place for you! With our expertise and knowledge of the surrounding wilderness areas, we’ll make sure your trip is an unforgettable experience. And of course you’ll be subject to the CV hospitality while in-camp: three meals a day, a hot sauna, a refreshing lake and a view of the water from your cabin.

Camp Voyageur is a cooperator with the USDA Forest Service under the Superior National Forest. We are an equal opportunity provider. We issue permits into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW), which is part of the National Wilderness Preservation System. We also follow Leave No Trace Wilderness Ethics.

Complete outfitting starts at $75 per-day/person. For individual items, rates vary. For more information, please contact us.

How do you get started planning your trip?

First, you’ll need to have a route or general idea of where you’d like to launch your trip. Wilderness Permits must be reserved, and depending on your entry point, availability may be limited. Because Camp Voyageur is a National Forest Service cooperator, you can pick up your Boundary Waters permit right here at camp! Quetico permits will be mailed to your residence.

Outfitting groups typically arrive the day before their entry permit, spending the night at Voyageur. Plan to start your trip after a good nights rest and a hearty breakfast. After your trip, a hot sauna and a warm dinner await you to top off your Northwoods experience!

Throughout the years, parents have often lamented, “Ah – If only I could go on a trip like my son…” Well, this season you can! Join us on these guided trips throughout the 2016 summer! All excursions are purposefully planned before or after a camp session.

They’re also great company!

Our complete outfitting package with a guide costs $90 per person per day, plus permit fees.

Stay in our cabins, enjoying three home cooked meals a day, sunning on the dock, and a variety of water activities. Canoe, sail, tube, kayak, play sports, fish, read, sun, or just relax in the wood-burning sauna and take a dip. Revel in the woodsy, rustic environment that Camp Voyageur is known for! Sleep in an open-air cabin with a view of the lake.

Our facilities are available for individuals, families and group retreats May through early September. Bring your own towels and bedding (we suggest a sleeping bag).

Bagged lunches are available upon request for day-trips and excursions.

Cost is $75 per person per day.

Group Retreats & Athletic Training

High school and college athletic teams, scouts, churches and family groups come to Camp Voyageur for several days every summer. Our setting on the edge of the wilderness is ideal for relaxation, recreation or staging a canoe trip. For the last two decades Camp Voyageur has hosted the University of Minnesota women’s cross country team for their preseason training. We will tailor the menu and activities for your group.
