Lake Vermilion, MN Fishing Paradise

While it’s true the Gopher State has 10,000 lakes, few are as spectacular and bountiful as 24 mile long Lake Vermilion in Northern Minnesota.

Fishing
Less than 100 miles north of the Duluth International Airport, Lake Vermilion’s 300 miles of shoreline and hundreds of islands and protected inlets offer the opportunity for anglers to land Minnesota’s favorite eating fish, the Walleye, and freshwater game fish like Northern Pike, Crappies, Bass and Perch. If you fancy a challenge, go for one of the state’s “monster Muskies” which can top fifty pounds and five feet in length!

Water and Land Activities
Non-anglers can enjoy a host of activities both on the water and on the shore; canoeing, kayaking, waterskiing and paddleboats ply the waters, with rentals available at many Lake Vermilion resorts. On land, enjoy scenic horseback rides, hiking, or wild berry picking.

Area Amenities
Golfers can putter around on the 160 holes within a short drive of the lake and local businesses in the nearby towns of Cook and Tower can satisfy your shopping urges and last minute needs.

Visit an underground mine, or enjoy fast-paced gaming at the Fortune Bay Casino. A number of locally themed museums provide interesting tours, and a stop at the International Wolf Center will allow you to get close up and personal with the resident wolf population – but don’t get too close!

Where to Stay
From tent-ready campsites to luxury hotel suite hotels, fishing camps, private cabins or houseboats, Lake Vermilion has accommodations to suit every lifestyle taste and budget. Many of the accommodations are ‘family friendly’ and “family ready”, perfect for reunions or starting a tradition of annual summer vacations.
