Gold Mine Camp



Vermilion River, Orr, Minnesota


Family owned and operated Hunting and Fishing Gold Mine Camp is located on the 49-mile-long Vermilion River, nestled between two portage "waterfalls," in the wilderness between Lake Vermilion and Crane Lake. The Vermilion River flows north of the Trout Lake Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and eventually empties into Hudson Bay in Canada. Gold Mine has access to approximately 17 miles of navigable river system. Gold Mine Camp is a privacy-plus location. People, other than Gold Mine guests, are rarely seen. Private property in this area is limited and public access is difficult. Gold Mine is the only resort on the entire river. This allows anglers the opportunity to relax and fish without interruption. We have about the best Hunting and Fishing experience one could have.

The MarJo Motel is an iconic “Retro” motel located on the west-bank of the East Two River in Tower, MN.  Built in the 1950’s the “MarJo” is a landmark reminder of the wayside motor-hotels that populated small-town rural America when road trips “up-north’ became popular six decades ago.  The MarJo may be basic, but provides tidy, clean, comfortable rooms at an affordable price. 


Located just a short stroll from restaurants, bars and shopping, it is a perfect overnight rest stop, or a home away from home for weekly stays.  Fishing (summer & winter), boating, bike and hiking trails are available directly from the MarJo, and within a five to thirty-minute drive.  Golf, X-country skiing, skating and snowshoeing are all possibilities right outside your door at the MarJo, or just a few miles out of town. The new Tower-Soudan Vermilion State Park is just ten-minutes away and Giants Ridge golf and ski resort area are just thirty-minutes away.  Tower, and the MarJo Motel, have direct access to beautiful Lake Vermilion via the East Two River.
