The staff is great. We had a good time. He loved the Wilderness golf course. Didn't do the casino. Plenty of others thing to do. Great trails to walk and enjoy the great north. We will be going back soon. My boyfriend thought the way he was treated at The Wilderness was top notch.

We really had a hard time finding a decent place to stay while in the Ely, Tower area. This place worked out well. 50 amp, and good water, no sewer just a dump station. Long gravel sites with a fairly roomy space in between coaches. This resort has alot to offer, including several places to eat. We ate at the... More

We go here often as it's fun to go gamble for a few hours; especially when the weather is not great. We like that even though there are new machines, they keep some of the "old school" machines as those are fun to play too. The all you can eat crab buffet was great and they keep bringing out hot,...

9 of us met at Vermilion House Boats on the way to the casino for a bachelor party. Our boat was a double-decker, 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom mansion that easily slept all of us. Each night we were on the lake, we docked at Fortune Bay. They have 2 slips that are specific to houseboats and have workers waiting there for you... More

Went "Up North" for some golf and water fun and could not have been happier. Our room was basic but clean. The Wilderness Golf course was everything I had heard. Beautiful, challenging and probably the most accommodating people I've ever had the pleasure of being around. Ate breakfast and lunch at the golf course and it was fantastic.

My cousin posted a very positive review for her stay at the same time, for the same purpose, but a very different room type & price. I paid far more and got a total dump.

This property is very nice! Beautifully maintained resort surrounded by an awesome Golf course. And right on Beautiful Lake Vermilion. The staff at the resort and casino very nice and helpful. We had reasonable luck in the casino, but having all the great amenities makes it a great getaway!
