Camp at Ojibway Park Located on Little Vermilion Lake

Ojibway Park on Little Vermilion Lake, offers good swimming, a sandy beach, and fine muskie fishing. Trails weave through pine forests carpeted with lady’s slipper orchids and along shorelines past wild rice.

There are 45 camping sites, including 22 electrical sites. Come for a picnic and a day at the beach where children can swim and play in the sand or climb the play structure nearby.

The park has one group camping area that can accommodate 10 tents or anywhere from 20-25 people. Water and toilets are available on site. The site is located just minutes from Little Vermillion Lake and the Boreal Walking Trail, a 1.5 km trail leading to the island. Reservations can be made by contacting the park directly.

Fish for lake trout, muskie, bass, walleye, and perch in Vermilion Lake, Minnitaki Lake and Lac Seul. Two boat launches provide access to Little Vermilion Lake.
