For camping enthusiasts in the Ely, MN, area, there's no better place to enjoy nature at its finest than Camp Van Vac. Replete with scenic nature trails, ample fishing spots, and cozy cabins, the lakeside resort has been delighting its visitors since the early 1900s.
Today, more than 25 cabins are available for vacationers during the spring, summer, and fall. Some sleep as many as ten campers, while there are many two-, four-, and five-person options available for families and smaller.. groups. With central restrooms, gas stoves, beds with fresh linens, and Wi-Fi available in a central campground location, the vacation resort has the accommodations you need to enjoy a week of camping among Minnesota's most captivating landscapes and wildlife.
Indeed, most campers tend to spend the majority of their stay outdoors among the campground's exquisite surroundings. Burntside Lake, spanning nine miles, is one of the site's premier destinations. It's home to 100 forested islands and is the perfect fishing location for walleye, smallmouth bass, lake trout, crappie, and northern pike. The campground also offers boat rentals, including canoes, pontoons, motorboats, and kayaks, but guests are also welcome to bring their own watercrafts.
In addition to fishing, guests can traverse trails of Superior National Forest. Among the thicketed woodland, you may encounter deer, beavers, foxes, bald eagles, and even bears and wolves. The campground's surroundings have plenty of locations for picnicking, bird watching, and photographing wildlife in its natural habitat.
