Minnesota’s Only National Park Is Also The Best Place To See Beavers In The United States
Did you know Minnesota is home to one truly incredible national park? It’s easy to forget given the state’s other spectacular scenery. Our state parks cover many impressive landforms, our 10,000 lakes offer endless recreation, and our Boundary Waters is the most-visited wilderness area in the country. But Voyageurs National Park deserves some appreciation, too. Not only is it full of breathtaking scenery, but it also contains some incredible wildlife. In particular, the park is home to the densest population of beavers in the United States. Read more about the park and its population of furry critters below:
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
