Lake Vermilion is a freshwater lake in northeastern Minnesota, United States. The Ojibwe originally called the lake Nee-Man-Nee, which means "the evening sun tinting the water a reddish color". French fur traders translated this to the Latin word Vermilion, which is a red pigment. The Minnesota DNR rates Lake Vermilion as the fifth largest lake by surface area within Minnesota borders.
