Lake Vermilion in the Winter is magical. Ice-fishing, snowmobiling, skiing, and dogsledding. There are plenty of Lake Vermilion cabin fireplaces to gather around after a day on the lake, or on the ski and snowmobile trails.
In addition to the many Minnesota lakes are plenty of unique land activities. About 1/2 hour from Lake Vermilion is Minnesotas designated state recreation area for off-highway vehicles (OHV) and all-terrain vehicles (ATV): The 1200 acre Iron Range OHV Recreation Area. It has scramble areas, hill climbs, obstacles and challenge courses. The Black Bay Peninsula Hiking Trail is great for hiking and biking - we also recommend picking up a day permit for hiking in the BWCAW. If a scenic road trip in a car is your speed, make sure you explore the Superior National Forest Scenic Byway. Chances are someone in your vacation group is going to want to sneak in a round of golf. There are over 160 holes of golf within a 45 minute drive of Lake Vermilion.
