Welcome to

Lake Kabetogama


Every single one of our Kabetogama Lakeside Resorts offers your family and friends private lakeside lodging with access to the natural waterways of the Voyageurs National Park. In fact, most of the National Park is undeveloped, completely natural shoreline. You truly cannot get closer to Mother Nature than staying on Lake Kabetogama.

The name Kabetogama has many translations. One of our favorites is “the lake that lies alongside another” (Rainy Lake). In the Ojibwe language, Kabe means “all” and Ogema means “chief.” At the Kabetogama Lake Resorts, we think perhaps it simply means God’s Country.

Don’t worry if you can’t pronounce it (cab-uh-toe-ga-muh) or spell it. Just call it “Kab,” and you’ll sound like a local. 

The Gateway to

Voyageurs National Park

In Minnesota – the Land of 10,000 Lakes – Kabetogama is an enchanted combination of sky blue waters and majestic forests. Situated along the U.S.-Canadian border, Lake Kabetogama offers visitors miles of pristine undeveloped shoreline and 25,000 acres of clean, cool water. It’s like being in a Minnesota Postcard.

…not a soul around…
It is one of four major lakes comprising Voyageurs National Park. Established in 1975, Minnesota’s only National Park commemorates a key stretch of waterway canoed by 18th century French-Canadian Voyageurs who transported goods and furs along the international border lakes. Lake Kabetogama is a forested lake country setting born of an ancient glacier flow, edged by the great Canadian Shield.
