Can't say enough about the quality of service received at VDL. Ed and staff are all about making sure their guests have a great vacation. Special thanks to Marty for repairing my trolling motor and keeping us on the water. If you're looking for a north woods vacation with great hospitality and great fishing, this is the place to be.

This resort is warm and homey. The cabin we stayed in was spacious and spotless. The resort was immaculate. It is situated in a beautiful location and it seems like every cabin has a great view. I know ours sure did. The staff is incredibly helpful and friendly. They sincerely seem to want to be there. I wanted to extend... More

I ditto all the other reviews. My experience at VDL at the best. Ed and his staff are the best. When our rental boat needed a minor repair (lights), they were on it and had the repair done in less than an hour. Then Ed even took us on the lake to show us a great Walleye hole. And to... More

We had a flat tire on our boat trailer on the drive up and when I asked Ed for advice on where to get a new tire... More

Although the 11 miles of gravel road may make it a little difficult to get to the resort -- the resort; staff; and lake amenities make it a lot more difficult to leave! This beautiful Canadian Shield lake offers some of the best fishing that Minnesota has to offer. Anglers of all skill levels and ages can catch fish from... More

They have an in ground pool that is very well maintained, nice docks for young children to fish from, and a... More

We normally go to Canada but after staying at Vermilion Dam Lodge and enjoying some great fishing, no longer need to go further north and spend extra $$. Great people and accomodations. Will be going back!
