McKinley Park Campground

IMG_0501Located on the shores of beautiful Lake Vermilion, McKinley Park Campground is a paradise for the fisherman, boater and outdoor enthusiast. Our 61 campsites provide a relaxing haven after a day of fishing, hiking or boating. We feature a convenience store, laundry facilities and hot showers along with bait, tackle, ice and refreshments. We also have docks, boat launching and a fish cleaning building. A hiking/biking trail is located near the entrance to the park. The campground is built around a fabulous swimming beach.

Lake Vermilion is a premier walleye lake in the area. The lake is also home to northerns, small and large mouth bass, and crappies. Vermilion is also gaining notoriety as a world class muskie lake.

Over the past several years Lake Vermilion has hosted many professional fishing tournaments. The lake has over 40,000 acres of water with 1,200 miles of shoreline and over 365 islands. With its spectacular scenery, Lake Vermilion is an outstanding choice for boating or camping.
