Also, your staff must have... More

We were heading up north to celebrate our grandma's birthday and decided to make a long weekend of it and lucked out getting a four bedroom, two bath cabin (Sundown) here. What a great place! As a kid, we'd boated to this location before and I remember being jealous of the on-site playground and pool. This time, our family's kids... More

Ed is the kindest, most generous guy I've ever met and took great care of us. Marty took us out on the lake and was a blast to hang out with and learn from. The guides like rob and... More

This is our second stay with Vermillion Dam Lodge. Ed, Marty, and the entire crew are so friendly and helpful. They want you to catch fish just as much as you do. The cabins are clean, sooo comfortable, and such a feeling of home when there. Can't say enough good things about this place. If you're trying to decide for... More

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.
