Known for its clear waters and abundant fish, Lake Vermillion Recreation Area is a popular area among fishermen, boaters and swimmers. During the fall, sportsmen can find waterfowl and upland game within minutes from the park. This 512-acre reservoir is located 27 miles west of Sioux Falls.

History:

Lake Vermillion was created by impounding waters from the east fork of the Vermillion River in 1958. The river itself was first noted on an 1801 map by a French trapper who called it Otter Stream.

Great place for a quick getaway. Shady trees and a great lake full of fish! Rented a cabin. Its a typical state park cabin... A big wood box with beds, a.c. and a heater. It was clean and quiet... Worth the money. We try to stay during the week to miss the crowd.

Beautiful park on East and West side of lake. Not so busy and kinda remote place to stay. Also it's only 25 minutes to sioux falls.

Very quiet and convenient lake side campground right of the heat. Not many campers there the night we stopped over.
