WCCO Visits Canary Beach Resort!

Esme, Pat and crew recently featured Canary Beach Resort in their “Goin’ to the Lakes” special. Their trip showcased some of Alexandria’s most popular attractions — including our beautiful sandy beach!

Among the highlights were our Barrel Train rides and a nail-biting beachside game of GIANT JENGA!

Summer Activities


Our priority is to ensure your family has a relaxing and memorable Minnesota lake vacation!

In the summer, spring, and autumn, enjoy boating, hayrides, movie nights, barrel-train rides, volleyball, campfires, swimming, outdoor games, water park and playground excitement, fishing, and much more.

Winter Fun!


In the winter, you’ll find cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, ice skating, ice fishing, and relaxing by the fireplace in our comfortable, well-furnished cabins.

This is also the perfect time of year to enjoy quiet retreats with friends, holiday celebrations with family, or even host a memorable scrapbooking getaway.

Private Events & Retreats


Looking to host your own event? Our new 2,100 square foot multipurpose Event Center offers a convenient, versatile venue for a variety of gatherings and celebrations of up to 100 guests.

We designed the Event Center with flexibility in mind, and we’ve got just about everything you will need to make your event a big success.
