Fort Vermillion has an amazing atmosphere, a great 2 km trail, minigolf, a play structure and more. The Treehouse cafe inside has wonderful food that is healthy and fresh. There are plenty of treats such as baked goods and ice cream. Eat here!

We stop here often when traveling between Winnipeg and Thunder Bay. The service is friendly, the ice cream and coffee are excellent, the kids love the playground, and the hiking trail is very nice.
