Boating at Vermilion Valley Resort

Welcome to the VVR Marina
Edison Lake is a big backcountry lake to explore. Many of our guests enjoy taking a boat out to try for the large German Brown and Rainbow Trout lurking below the surface. Others are looking for alternative ways to enjoy the lake at VVR, and we have multiple types of watercraft available to rent by the hour or day. We encourage you to bring up your own kayaks and paddleboards as well - you can take off right from the campground or our shore front.

We offer are two sizes of aluminum fishing boats with motors, along with some SUP's and kayaks for rent at VVR. Reservations are encouraged. Please refer to the price list below.

  • Boats are not allowed on the lake after 7pm or before 7am due to the lack of running lights.
  • Boats must be returned by 7pm unless you have rented the boat for an extended stay. There is a $10 fee if you'd like to rent overnight.
  • Coast Guard regulations require that floatation devices be available at all times, and that children under the age of 10 be wearing flotation devices at all times while on the water.
  • Why not rent a boat overnight, and camp at a remote campsite around the lake. There are many to choose from - just ask the staff in the office.
