Grand Portage Lodge & Casino announces reopening plans

From the Grand Portage Lodge & Casino - June 5, 2020

At Grand Portage Lodge & Casino, the health and safety of our guests, employees and community is our highest priority. Our recent closure has been in close alignment with the COVID-19 response from Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization and Minnesota health departments. We are now planning the phased reopening of our property, with a tentative reopening date of Monday, June 22, 2020.

As we plan the gradual process of reopening our economy and returning employees to work, we have taken measures to combat the potential impact on our resort and facilities.

We will continue to monitor the situation. As it evolves, our reopening date could change, based upon external factors, such as the planned June 21 reopening of the US/Canadian border.

“We have missed hosting our guests and we look forward to when we can begin creating new memories together”, said Beth Drost, RTC Chairwoman. “Things will be a little different when we reopen, with new measures in place to ensure that our guests and employees remain safe.”

In addition to our usual high standards of cleanliness, during the closure, the property has been thoroughly deep-cleaned and sanitized, and enhanced health and safety plans have been developed with guidance from public health officials. Upon returning, guests can expect additional new safety procedures and protocols. For complete details, please visit

As our guests may be looking for flexibility when they make their travel plans, please know that you will be able to cancel or rebook your reservation prior to arrival until noon the day of check-in without charge. This way, you can plan your visit with confidence and peace of mind. We want all of our guests to feel comfortable and confident in planning and coming to enjoy our accommodations, casino and restaurant.

We will continue to work closely with local and national health officials to keep our guests and employees safe. Please feel confident that we’re doing all we can to provide a healthy environment so that you can enjoy your stay with us.

Thank you for allowing us to be your lodge and casino of choice. For more information, please visit grandportage.comor call 800-543-1384.
