With over 2,000 miles of hiking designated for foot hikers, bikers, and even equestrians, this park is the place to go to if you enjoy hitting the trails and viewing wildlife. Remember to check on trail conditions to ensure the trails you plan to take are open. And always leave only footprints and take only pictures.
If there’s one thing that sets Boundary Waters apart from other parks it’s the thousands of lakes, 77 lake accesses, and 13 fishing piers. A variety of fishes can be found in the waters within this park. Walleye and lake trout, as well as bass, crappies, northern pike, yellow perch, rainbow trout, cisco, and even eelpout (burbot) all call the area home. Remember to check with the DNR about fishing permits, as well as how to prevent the spread of invasive species. Never dump bait fish in the water and avoid bringing water and vegetation from other lakes into these lakes by rinsing your boat off. We also encourage the use of lead free tackle to avoid poisoning the waters.
Wolves, black bears, and moose all call this area home. There are also over 300 species of birds that can be found. Most people come with the home of seeing one of the big three. We suggest coming prepared to see one, but never doing anything to bait the animals or attract them. Keep food stored away, carry bear spray for your own safety, and if you do see one of these animals keep a safe distance. Never try to take a close up picture with them.
