The Boundary Waters — also called the Quetico-Superior country — is a region of wilderness straddling the Canada–United States border between Ontariomarker and Minnesotamarker, in the region just west of Lake Superiormarker. This region is part of the Superior National Forestmarker in northeastern Minnesota, and in Canada it includes La Verendryemarker and Queticomarker Provincial Parks in Ontario. Voyageurs National Parkmarker in Minnesota may also be considered part of the Boundary Waters. The name "Boundary Waters" is often used in the U.S. to refer specifically to the U.S. Wilderness Area protecting its southern extent, the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wildernessmarker.

The Boundary Waters is a popular destination for recreationalists pursuing camping, canoeing, fishing, as well as for those simply looking for natural scenery and relaxation. The area is one of several distinct regions of Minnesota.
