Mystic Lake


Dear Guests of Mystic Lake and Little Six,

We’ve missed you and hosting your entertainment experiences, and have been looking forward to the day when we can make new memories together again at Mystic Lake and Little Six.

Everyone’s health and well-being remains our highest priority, and that means things will look a little different as we reopen. We are constantly monitoring the situation and have modified our properties to ensure that we are operating in a way that keeps you and our team members safe. We will take a phased approach to reopening based on the guidance we continue to receive from public health officials, and add additional amenities over time.

Our doors may have been closed, but behind the scenes we’ve been diligently cleaning and sanitizing all areas of our properties and creating enhanced health and safety plans with expert help from public health officials. Please watch the video below to learn more about the actions we’re taking to keep everyone safe.

I am truly grateful for you, all of our guests, and our valued team members. The time apart has been challenging, which is all the more reason to celebrate being together once again. I am excited to welcome you back to Minnesota’s premier resort destination. The lights are on and brighter days are ahead.

Angela Heikes
President / CEO
Welcome Back


At first, occupancy will be reduced to ensure proper social distancing. We made a commitment to our guests and team members that we would do everything we could to keep them safe and healthy, which means limiting the number of people inside the building at any one time. We expect to have peak times where traffic patterns will ebb and flow—allowing us to welcome guests as it is safe to do so. If you are traveling from far away, we suggest coming during non-peak business hours and recommend visiting during the early morning hours. We appreciate your patience as we refine this new way of welcoming our guests back to property.

Parking and entrances will be limited. Please park in the main parking garage attached to the skyway or the main parking lot nearest the casino. Enter through the skyway entrance or the main entrance. Valet is temporarily closed, but drop-off will be available at the bus entrance.

Social Distancing


We are following social distancing practices everywhere. Watch for specific reminders on the gaming floor and at ATMs, ticket redemption machines, promotion kiosks and Club M®.

Sanitizing High Touch Areas


We’re frequently sanitizing high touch areas using proven products that kill viruses and bacteria, and have enhanced cleaning protocols property-wide.
