Lake Vermilion is a freshwater lake in northern Minnesota, United States. The Ojibwe originally called the lake Onamuni, which means "Lake of the Sunset Glow".

French fur traders translated this to the Latin word Vermilion, which is a red pigment. Lake Vermilion is located near the town of Tower, Minnesota in the heart of Minnesota's Arrowhead Region. Slightly larger towns located near Lake Vermilion are Ely, Minnesota on the east and Cook, Minnesota on the west. The Vermilion Range was an area known for mining during the late 1800s and early to mid 1900s, and the Soudan Mine operated just south of the lake. Lake Vermilion is known for its walleye and muskie fishing. In the spring of 2005, Lake Vermilion was host to the annual Minnesota Governor’s Fishing Opener Weekend. The lake attracts visitors from all parts of Minnesota and the Midwestern United States, who lodge at the lake's numerous resorts and hotels. Tourists are drawn by Lake Vermilion's reputation as a fishing destination, as well as its setting in the northern Minnesota wilderness.
