Cook, Minnesota

Most lake names in Northern Minnesota pay homage to the Native Americans. Vermilion is no different. It was known to the Chippewa as the "Lake of the Sunset Glow."

Perhaps the name is the result of the fire-red horizon at sundown, perhaps the result of the incredible displays of aurora borealis. Whatever the case, the billions of stars sparkling like diamonds in the night time sky will leave you breathless. Whether you prefer fishing, boating, hiking, berry-picking, birding or just plain relaxing, Lake Vermilion is a great place for a great vacation!
