I've always wanted to do a boat in camping trip at Voyageur's National Park. I always thought it would be a cool adventure to try. My wife and I finally made the plans to do it last weekend, and I can share some important things we learned on our first trip.

Voyageurs National Park is a huge park on several lakes in Northern Minnesota near International Falls. The campsites in the park are all shore sites that are only accessible by boat. You can bring your own boat, rent a boat, rent a houseboat, or in some cases take a tour boat. We loaded up our 18 foot Crestliner and trailered it North about 3 hours from Duluth and began our adventure. Here's some tips that we learned in our first adventure.
