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

My wife and I spent the first week of July at VDL. It was our first visit but will not be our last. Great accommodations, great resort staff, great fishing, and great amenities. 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!

I have stayed at Vermilion Dam Lodge a couple of times. I am a an avid fisherman and have a family. VDL is a great place for the fisherman and for the whole family. While staying at VDL's lovely, clean, well appointed cabins, your wife and kids won't feel like they are at a fish camp. There is an outdoor,... More
