Summer doesn't officially start until June 20th, but it's already made it's way into the Northland. If you're looking for a place to cool off, Mont du Lac has launched brand new attractions to assure you have a chill summer.

Situated in Superior, right along the St. Louis River, lies a little aquatic oasis.

"Where I live it's been almost 93 degrees everyday, so it's been nice the past couple of days," resort goer Emma Morris said about Mont du Lac Resort.

Since memorial day hundreds of resort goers have splashed into summer at Mont du Lac's Big Kahuna Waterpark. 

For 11 and 12 year old Savanna Verhel and Evaya Jeanette, there favorite parts of the park were, "going on the Big Kahuna" and "going down the new slide."

This season the resort is pulling out all the stops, launching new attractions and activities so that fun seekers of all ages have a blast.

One of the brand new attractions at Mont du Lac is the Slooper Slide, it's a throwback to old playground slides.

Park goer Tyler described it as "super fun, it's really good."

Gabe Bowstring, also a visitor of Mont du Lac, added, "it's fast. There's actually a little water spout on the top where you get sprayed with water so you can go faster."

After taking a refreshing dip in the pond, adults can now sip on refreshments at the new beach bar. It's accompanied by a stage where live bands will rock out every Saturday evening in the summer.

Resort staff said it's been great seeing people enjoying Mont du Lac, especially after the pandemic.

"Our beach bar [has] been rockin' having people there," said Bridgette Duffy, the sales and marketing manager for Mont du Lac. "Seeing groups talk to one another, that's really fun to watch. Families coming in larger groups, and doing their family reunions again this summer, it's just nice to see."

Winter, a resort goer, chimed in saying "my favorite part is basically everything because the environment around here is really fun."

The resort is open seven days a week. Season passes or day passes can be purchased for anyone desiring to dive on in to all the fun.

"Thank you for the people who built the slide, people should come and enjoy it," added resort goer Jared Olson.
