La Verendrye Provincial Park
Creating the border of Minnesota and Ontario, the Pigeon River meanders and cascades approximately 50 miles (80 km) to Lake Superior. Once an important thoroughfare for the Voyageur fur-traders, it is now a part of several parks: on the Minnesota side, it begins on the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and crosses through Grand Portage State Park, while the entire Canadian shoreline is designated as La Verendrye Waterway. The park is non-operating, so there are no visitors’ facilities, but backcountry and car-camping still enable paddlers to explore the Pigeon River.
