Fall Foliage Retreat at Lake Vermilion: Top 5 Activities at White Eagle Resort

As summer gives way to autumn, nature paints the landscape with stunning hues of red, orange, and gold. If you’re yearning for an unforgettable fall getaway, look no further than Lake Vermilion, nestled in the heart of Minnesota’s wilderness. Here at White Eagle Resort, the picturesque surroundings come alive during the fall season, making it the perfect destination for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts alike. From awe-inspiring fall foliage to exciting outdoor activities, we present you with the top five things to do at White Eagle Resort this fall.

  1. Immerse Yourself in Nature’s Palette: Fall at Lake Vermilion is a sight to behold, as the vibrant colors of the leaves create a breathtaking spectacle. Stroll along the resort’s scenic trails and immerse yourself in nature’s palette. Grab your camera and capture the mesmerizing beauty of the changing leaves as you meander through the dense forests. Check out our blog post about local hiking trails worth checking out. 
  2. Fishing Extravaganza: Lake Vermilion is renowned for its exceptional fishing opportunities, and fall offers a unique angling experience. The cooler temperatures bring an abundance of fish, including walleye, muskie, and bass, closer to the surface. Spend a relaxing day on the lake, either fishing from the shore or out on a boat, and try your luck in reeling in a big catch. Whether you’re an experienced angler or a novice looking to learn, there are local fishing guides to assist you in making the most of your fishing adventure.
  3. Kayaking and Canoeing Amidst Nature’s Glory: Discover the serene beauty of Lake Vermilion by paddling along its tranquil waters. Use one of our complimentary Paddle North kayaks, stand up paddle boards or a canoe and  explore the hidden coves, inlets, and shoreline, all adorned in the vibrant colors of fall. As you glide through the calm waters, you’ll have the chance to spot various bird species, including eagles and loons, and might even catch glimpses of curious wildlife along the shoreline.
  4. Cozy Bonfires, saunas and Lakeside Relaxation: As the evening chill sets in, cozy up around a crackling bonfire under the starry night sky. White Eagle Resort offers several community and private bonfire spaces throughout the resort where you can gather with family and friends to share stories, laughter, and roast marshmallows. With the tranquil lake as your backdrop, these moments will become cherished memories. Another way to cozy up in the evening is to take a cedar sauna in one of our two onsite saunas then cold plunge into the lake! If that isn’t your thing, you can relax on the lakeside patio cozied up with a good book, taking in the picturesque views, and let the cool breeze whisk away your worries.
  5. Scenic Fall side by side adventures: Embark on a scenic drive through the beautiful forest surrounding Lake Vermilion. Enjoy the sight of towering pines, private overlooks, and charming lakes as you take in the splendor of the fall season. Amazing trails are just down the road from White Eagle. If you don’t have your own side by side, no problem, we can hook you up with a local rental.

As fall casts its spell on Lake Vermilion, the White Eagle Resort beckons you to experience the season’s finest offerings. With the majestic beauty of the fall foliage, thrilling outdoor activities, and a tranquil ambiance, this fall retreat promises an unforgettable escape. So pack your bags and head to Lake Vermilion’s White Eagle Resort, where nature’s canvas awaits you.
