Wild Rice at Crane Lake is easy to come by. The Vermilion River is where people go to harvest this organic grain.

The Vermilion River is a designated “wild river”. There are campsites along the river and a few portages around rapids and waterfalls. No permits are needed to travel this 30 mile section of river that connects Crane Lake to Lake Vermilion. All you need is a canoe.
