General Description: Fortune Bay Resort Casino is located on the shores of Lake Vermilion between Virginia and Ely, Minnesota. In addition to the casino, the resort includes a lodge, RV Park, restaurants, bars, golf course, and water recreational opportunities such as canoeing and fishing on the lake. The casino is medium sized with slot machines and table games. The RV Park has 16 pull through sites with 50 amp and water hookups. There are also 20 back-in sites with no hookups. Facilities include bathroom/showers, laundry facilities on the weekend, and easy access to the casino.
1) The RV Park is little more than a parking lot with pull-through sites running down the middle of the park and back-in around the outside of the circle. During the week you have to walk up to the lodge registration in order to get your site. Their little office at the RV park is only open on weekends. The sites are level and easy to get in and out of. The TV reception is okay and the WiFi is very good.
2) The bathrooms in the RV Park are small and dated, although they were kept clean. There is a tricky combination you have to enter to access the bathrooms, although I don’t understand the reason for this. It is not like anybody would use these bathrooms when those in the casino and lodge are much nicer.
3) The casino is a medium sized casino with a couple hundred slot machines and the typical table games. We found plenty of machines to satisfy our needs for the week.
