Voyageurs reopens two campsites

By Randy Thoms May 25, 2024 | 12:10 PM

Voyageurs National Park is reopening two campsites closed because of eagle nesting areas.

The sites are on Kabetogama Lake.

Park officials say nearby nests were not occupied for breeding this spring.

One site on Namakan (NAMM-mih-kunn) Lake is still close.

The park has closed water and land sites near eagle nesting sites each year since 1992 to avoid interaction with the public.

Some eagle pairs nest in late March and early April, while others may not initiate nesting until late April or early May.

If the nests are in use, nearby campsites will remain closed until the young eagles leave.
