Lake Vermilion State Park is a state park under development in the U.S. State of Minnesota in central North America. The park began with the purchase of about 3,000 acres from U.S. Steel in 2010.[1] It is on the southeast shore of Lake Vermilion, adjoining and to the east of Soudan Underground Mine State Park.

It is home to northern songbirds, loons, hawks, and various owls. White-tailed deer, black bears, timber wolves, fishers and many smaller animals also inhabit this park.
