Very Scammy! Got double billed for a room, never would have known it if we didn't scrutinize our monthly bank statement. They gave a room to other people and billed us for it. Gave us their names, which sounded like casino family. We had to...More

We were in Walker for one night, so we popped in here to just see what was going on. Lots of people gambling. It smelled of smoke, even in the smoke free zone. We lost 20$ right away.

I've traveled the US, Central America and the Caribbean. This is the worst, most dishonest operation I've experienced. I've walked the streets in the Dominican Republic and Costa Rica and met more honest operators than the Northern Lights Casino. Even when the cameras verified I...More

We visit this casino on our annual trip to Minnesota. It's very clean and has a nice atmosphere. We usually don't win any money but it's a fun place to go and have fun.

Stopped in for a few hours on Thursday night for Cajun fest. Enjoyed the sampling of "non-usual" Minnesota music. Great performers and a good chance to taste Cajun cuisine.

I've been to this casino many times over the years, mainly for concerts and a little bit of gaming. I've also stayed at the adjoining hotel. The people I've dealt with there have been friendly and efficient. The first thing a non smoker notices when...More

The tightest slots in the state :( Buffet is just OK some nights for $13.99, but don't expect it to be like the one at Mystic Lake, cuz you will be disappointed.

Northern Lights Casino is a very well run casino that is kept clean and updated. It can be very busy some days and it is cool, so it is wise to bring a light coat or sweatshirt, even in the summer. They have a good...More

We stopped in here because it was raining outside. A smaller casino but not over crowded. I prefer to play 'regular' quarter slots but they only had 8 machines. Was able to find one - but would have hoped for more options. Most of the...More

I am not sure. Better check with the local hotels, the Chase on the Lake might. Otherwise there is a taxi service.
