A new boat launch is coming to Kabetogama Lake.

Voyageurs National Park says the launch located near the Kabetogama Visitor Centre will be replaced this year.

The existing launch was built in the 1980s but has deteriorated in recent years.

The park is still uncertain when construction will start.

It says that will be determined later this month once a contractor for the job has been hired.

The new launch will replace the current footprint of forty feet wide, sixteen-foot lanes, constructed out of concrete, and include one-inch-deep V-

Groove patterns to assist with traction when launching or loading watercraft.

When work begins, the visitor center picnic area, beach, canoe/kayak launch, and vault toilet will be closed.

Watercraft access from the lake to the visitor center and marina area will remain open, with a portable toilet set up for visitor use.
