This lake is huge! Plenty of space for anything you would want to do on a lake. Cruising, Tubing, water skiing, and of course all the fishing. Its so beautiful. It can be cold seeing as its in the northern part of MN. If getting away from the city is what you want this is a great place to go.

Just the right amount of drive time to get us away from it all and relax. We love The Village Squarer Coffee Shop in town and have stayed at The Leech Lake B&B and are in love with Trappers Landing! Beautiful, warm and peaceful area to be! Perfect!

The lake was frozen for our New Year's visit, but it is beautiful Spring through Fall. Very nice to stay at The Chase on the Lake Resort, and enjoy Leech Lake views!

This is very colorful area this time of the year and Walker is a great town for it's size. Reeds Sports is in Walker and has about everything you would need to enjoy the area.

This is a very large lake with lots of inlets. The water was colder than I thought it would be. I can see how people could spend day's exploring this great lake!

Would have liked to have had more time as it was a beautiful lake, but not many places to pull off on the highway.

It is always great to go to Leech Lake. Great fishing, great weather, and always great to hang out by the lake.
