Top 200 Places: Rainy Lake Houseboats in Minnesota

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

Rainy Lake Houseboats
2031 Town Road 488
International Falls,
Minnesota 56649
218-286-5391

As the only inland water-based park in the National Park system, exploring the Voyageurs National Park by water is a great way to share in the beauty of this area. Dogs are allowed on the houseboats for an additional fee of $50 per pet. Dogs must be leashed at all times when off the houseboat, and they are not allowed on any of the trails of the national park. They may be at the landing or campsite only. Since dogs are not allowed inside most of the National Park, these houseboats may be the best way to see the park with your dogs.
