The Rainy River Basin sits on Minnesota's border with Canada and is home to some of the state's finest forest and water resources. Voyageurs National Park and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness are located within the Rainy River Basin, as are several of Minnesota's most famous walleye fisheries and many top-notch trout streams. Other prominent uses of natural resources in the basin are forestry, mining and various forms of recreation. The waters from the Rainy River Basin flow north, eventually arriving in Hudson Bay.
