Nearly 200 years ago, French Canadian voyageurs paddled birch bark canoes full of animal pelts and trade goods through this place on their way to Lake Athabaska in Canada. Voyageurs is a water-based park where you must park your car and take to the water to fully experience the lakes, islands and shoreline of the park. Today motorboats, houseboats, canoes and kayaks are all used here.
