We were looking for pull thru sites near Ely and this was the closest we could find. Some distance from Ely, but workable. Small campground with 50 amp and water, but no sewer (dump tank at park entry). Wi-Fi was available, but we used our iphone hotspot instead since it was quicker. No problem with campground, but be prepared for a drive if you're going somewhere other than the casino at Fortune Bay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice casino campground but no sewer hookups. Short walk to the casino. Very weak WiFi. Verizon aircard works. Casino discount is only good if you accumulate lots of points every day. We didn't spend enough (only $100) to even come close to getting enough points for the discount. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a 5th wheel toy hauler. Rate shown includes taxes. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very friendly staff. A very small designated dog walk area. The rate was $30 but if you played at the casino you were given a 40% discount on the rate. There's a beautiful challenging golf course behind the hotel/casino. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We haven't been here in about 10 years. We were able to get the last available W&E, pull-through site on Saturday night. The last review from 2007 gives a fairly good description of the park. There was a Good Sam group taking about a dozen of the 16 W&E sites. Because of the layout of the sites, sites 8 through 16 can have a problem getting the Wi-Fi because the Wi-Fi antenna on the office roof can be blocked by RVs between your site and the office. We were in site 12 and couldn't get the Wi-Fi. We moved to site 5 on Sunday morning after all the Good Sam people left and were able to get the Wi-Fi. No cable TV but the pull-through sites are satellite friendly. Within walking distance are the casino, the hotel, restaurants, a marina, and a golf course. The bathrooms are too small for a no sewers park and there is a 4 machine laundry. The fellow who takes care of the RV park was very helpful and friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is indeed a smaller campground, but the sixteen pull through sites with hook-ups will accommodate all lengths and widths. Although, there is only about 15 feet between sites, it’s not awning to awning with your neighbor. There is some front to back sloping on about half of the sites, but easily managed. There are also sites along the perimeter but they were designed for tents or pop-ups. Those are sloped and have no hook-ups. A picnic table is available for every site, but the campground only has a single community fire ring. The wood is free. 50A voltage was good, but there were only a few rigs here during the weekday. There is no Wi-FI. Access roads and pads are gravel, but well maintained. There is a single small bath house, but it too was well maintained. No shade trees on the pads, but temps were low so they weren’t needed. The Casino is a 5 minute walk, but there is an on-demand shuttle. It was quiet despite the closeness to the parking lot. The golf course is gorgeous, rated highly by several golf magazines, and is therefore expensive. There is a large lake nearby where boats can be rented. The single staff member was pleasant and helpful. The best description of this campground is: adequate for a few days. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed the campground. We liked that they offered shuttle service to the dock and Resort Hotel which are both in walking distance. The golf course looked awesome. The kids loved the pool and arcade room which we were able to use since we were staying at the RV campgrounds. Lake Vermillion is a great lake. The sites with out hookups are the ones with the best location. Any site with hook ups was in the middle with no trees. I would stay here again because of the marina/dock and hotel access. My sister in-law won $140 dollars on the penny slots. It is no Vegas, but will do while your camping. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Small casino campground with 16 pull-thru sites with only electricity and water, surrounded by pine trees. Campground was scruffy and displayed very little maintenance taking place. Had to walk to hotel to register. Expensive considering lack of ambiance and limited amenities. Adequate for overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is good or bad depending on the site that you choose. Some sites are around a large grassy area that looks out to the lake. These are great. Others are on the perimeter of the peninsula and are right on the lake. These have good views but are heavily wooded and the road to them is two dirt ruts. The worst sites are on the interior of the peninsula. The sites are very narrow with heavy woods on both sides. These are the pull through sites but I would never take a large class A in here.
Several large garbage bins and two porta potties sit in the cleared area opening into all these pull through sites which are too narrow to even set up chairs alongside the RV and so full of bugs you wouldn't want to anyway. Good TV service for four stations, some telephone service, near Tower-Soudan State Park, and next to a boat ramp with access to the lake. Just reserve early and choose a good site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is more of a park for campers, not big motorhomes. It is surrounded on three sides by Vermilion Lake which makes it both quiet and attractive. Our lakeside site needed severe tree trimming before we could back our 45-footer into it. Most sites are deeply wooded with all the pros and cons that go with that. The park was OK, but had seen little maintenance in recent times. The dirt site made it an extra challenge to keep your rig clean, both inside and out. Bugs were an issue, but not as bad as it looked like they would be. There was a nice beach area that was popular with the kids. We camped here in a Motorhome.
