  • Lake Vermilion State Park

    Minnesota’s newest state park is now under development, and recreation opportunities and public access are currently very limited. The State Park will soon have camping opportunities, including camper cabins, boat-in campsites, traditional camping, and group camping. There will be a wide range of interpretive programs offered throughout the year. Hiking trails and boardwalks will provide fantastic vistas along the lake and to inland areas, and there will be a fun outdoor adventure area designed for people of all ages.

    Canoe Sites at the Lake Vermilion State Park
    2 boat-in sites
    There are two temporary boat-in campsites, each with a fire ring, bear box, and biffy. There is no potable water, so you will need to bring your own. During this temporary phase there is no fee for the campsites and they are available on a first come, first served basis. Regular park rules do apply to the campsites. Please call the park office at 218-753-2245 if you have any questions. Since there are no reservations for these sites, the park does not know on a daily basis if the sites are full.

    The Lake Vermilion State Park is near the Soudan Mine where visitors can learn about how mining shaped the history and culture of the Iron Range. Explore the dry house, drill shop, crusher house and engine house, and take the boardwalk past one of the deepest open mine pits. Take an underground mine tour and travel a half mile beneath the earth to the deepest area that was mined. And don’t miss the hiking trails that take you through a northern hardwood conifer forest, past the famous Soudan Iron Formation.
