The DNR Natural Resources Parks and Trails Division will hold an open house at the Tower Civic Center, Tuesday, Sept. 1, from 5 to 7 p.m. to provide updates on development plans for Lake Vermilion-Soudan Underground Mine State Park. The Tower Civic Center is located at 402 Pine Street, in Tower.
DNR staff will be on hand to provide construction updates on the new campground, public water access and water treatment facility, and answer questions about future development plans. The public is invited to participate and provide written comments. When complete, the park’s main campground will accommodate:
168 people at 33 drive-in campsites, where amenities will include electricity, flush toilets, showers and We-Fi, plus a water access site that will connect campers to boating and fishing opportunities on Lake Vermilion.
60 people at two group camps designed for tents and recreational vehicles, with a sanitation building that includes flush toilets and showers. 30 people at a semi-primitive group camp with vault toilets.
