Bentleyville’s Lights are Twinkling


Bentleyville 2015

Things are lighting up here in canal park and bayfront park in Duluth, MN! Volunteers are working around the clock to put up over 4 million lights in the 20 acre park just off the shore of Lake Superior.

If you’ve never visited Bentleyville “Tour of Lights”, the magic begins this year on November 21, 2015. Bundle up and enjoy a stroll through the park to view the many lighted displays with various themes. Grab a cup of complimentary hot cocoa, cookies, and popcorn, you can even roast a marshmallow over a warm campfire. Get your picture taken with Rudolph or one of the other reindeer (or all of them if your heart desires). Visit Santa and Mrs. Claus. Don’t forget your ice skates! Weather permitting, the ice rink will be glistening and holiday music playing.

As always, this is a free event, although donations are appreciated.

Get an early start to your summer!


It’s an unusually warm and sunny spring here in Duluth, MN, which makes it the perfect time to visit. The summer season hasn’t hit yet. There aren’t many tourists, no bugs, easy parking, quick seating at restaurants. At the end of the day you can unwind and take in the view on our new patio, just built last summer. Nights are still a little chilly, so it’s the perfect place to gather around the fire, listen to the waves crash onto the beach. Before you know it summer will be here and Canal Park will be bustling. Take it from an experienced Duluthian, last year at this time we were still shoveling snow, don’t miss out on this sunny, warm Duluth spring.

NEW Patio at Canal Park Lodge


We are very proud to announce the opening of our new patio. We’ve expanded our seating area so more guest can enjoy our outdoor space. A bubbling rock fountain enhances the atmosphere, and our new fire ring creates the best place to enjoy a summer’s evening on the shore of Lake Superior. There’s nothing quite like a warm fire, a summer breeze, Lake Superior waves crashing on the beach, and great friends sitting beside you. We hope you enjoy the new patio area made just for you!
