  1. Lake Vermilion - Soudan Underground Mine State Park - Activities

    1302 McKinley Park Rd
    Soudan, MN 55782
    Call: (218) 300-7000

    Tour Minnesota's first iron mine. Don a hardhat and journey 2,341 feet via a cage to the 27th level, ride the rails back into the mine and listen to the stories of mining a century ago. Above ground, explore the dry, drill shop, crusher and engine house. Hike the trails through a hardwood conifer forest and past the famous Soudan Iron Formation.

    Jackets and sturdy shoes recommended for the underground mine tour.

    The Lake Vermilion expansion of the park added another 3,000-plus acres and is currently under development as a next-generation state park. A new campground is expected to open mid-summer of 2017. The Armstrong Bay Day Use Area is currently available for boat-in or drive-to picnics, and several boat-in campsites are also available on a first-come, first-served basis.
