Where to go: The drive to the Armstrong Bay day use will be worth taking (use the park's main entrance road off Highway 169). The drive will give you a good look at the interior of the park and the day use area will give you a good view shed of Lake Vermilion.
What you'll see: There are plenty of different trees -- some maples, some oak, and plenty of birch and aspen.
Also of interest: Enjoy the day fishing at the fishing pier and have a picnic at the Armstrong Bay day use area.Last updated: September 27, 2014
Canít decide between a one-day or year-round park permit? The DNR has a special offer that can help. Start by purchasing a one-day permit for $5 and visit as many state parks as possible. After visiting the state parks, trade in the one-day permit by the end of that day and get $5 off the purchase of a year-round permit. Year-round permits, which cost $25, provide unlimited access to all 76 Minnesota state parks and recreation areas for a full year from the month of purchase.
