Highlights of Things to Do

Tranquil and wild, this retreat on Little Vermilion Lake offers good swimming, a sandy beach and fine muskellunge fishing. Trails weave through pine forests carpeted with Lady’s Slipper Orchids and along shorelines of wild rice. Listen carefully for the wolf’s howl at night.

There are a range of paddling and hiking options for both the novice and the experienced camper.

The campground and day-use areas are operated by the Dryden Association for Community Living, in partnership with Ontario Parks.
