Crane Lake Tourism Bureau 


Voyageur's National Park is accessible mainly by motorized watercraft with no horsepower restrictions. The Quetico Park and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness is accessible by canoe. So the Crane Lake area has something for all who love the outdoors. While headquartered at one of the area's modern resorts or RV sites, exploring the lakes in a comfortable houseboat or paddling your canoe rented from one of our outfitters and tenting in a remote lake you will discover the grandeur of this historic area that the Voyageurs once traversed. Bring your camera. Mother Nature shows her majesty in many ways in the Crane Lake area. Miles of waterways, forests, and rocks all beg to be explored. Birds and wildlife can be viewed with a little patience. Songbirds and waterfowl arrive in the spring to nest or migrate further north. Loon and eagle sightings are prevalent. It is common to see deer at any time of the year along with black bears and moose. In their season berries can be picked and eaten. Fishing is still a major activity. Walleye, northern pike, small and largemouth bass, black crappie, lake trout, lake sturgeon, and panfish are caught in these waters. Winter guests explore Voyageur Country over hundreds of miles of groomed snowmobile trails. It is a unique experience to travel over the frozen lakes or go through the woods covered with a blanket of snow. Our well-marked trails are connected to Minnesota's thousands of miles of groomed trails. A variety of accommodations are available in the winter from housekeeping units to lodge rooms. Excellent restaurants are open to serve you.
