Lake Vermilion-Soudan Underground Mine State Park in northeast Minnesota will be home to eight new cabins this winter.
On Monday, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources announced that the new cabins are ready and will be accessible year round. Each one has WiFi, an outdoor food prep counter, a fire ring and a table.
The cabins all fit up to six people, with either three full-size bunks or two full-size bunks and two twin-size bunks. A nearby shower and restroom area will serve the cabins.
The cabins are named after Ojibwe words for the four seasons and cardinal directions. Visitors can begin making reservations on Dec. 28 for stays beginning Dec. 31 and Jan. 13.
Funding for the cabins was primarily provided by money in state infrastructure bills passed in 2014 and 2017.
Lake Vermilion-Soudan Underground Mine State Park is Minnesota’s newest state park, having been donated to the state in 1963. The DNR purchased a 3,000 acre extension of the park in 2010.
