CARLTON, MN - The Fon Du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa has added a ten-story hotel tower at their Black Bear Casino. The new hotel features 250 guest rooms and two stories of lobby and office space. The casino will open a new gaming floor in May.

Hotel manager, Cory Van Guilder, said "We draw people from anywhere from Thunder Bay to Minneapolis within a 60 to 90 mile radius." He feels the quality of the hotel compares to the best in Minnesota. "We're 20 minutes from Duluth so we have Lake Superior and Jay Cooke State Park and snowmobile trails and cross country trails. Of course we have our golf course that is the best in the area."

Van Guilder continued, ""We are the largest employer in Carlton County and most of our employees live in this county also so it does help the economy."

The casino started as a bingo hall by the Fon Du Lac Band. As its business grew the casino has provided financial help for its band and its members.
