Leech Lake Tourism

Minnesota’s Original “Up North”

The Leech Lake area has built a strong reputation for its wonderful family vcacations and fishing getaways. Visitors are sure to find their ideal lodging option because Leech Lake has over 30 resorts, lodges, campgrounds, and hotels lining its 195 miles of shoreline.  Leech Lake is nationally recognized for excellent multi-species fishing–particularly for walleyes and muskies–but also available are northern pike jumbo perch, crappies and bluegills, and largemouth bass.  Leech Lake is Minnesota’s third-largest lake, but consists of several smaller bays that give you the feel of smaller lakes, with all the advantages of a large lake system.  Year-round recreational activities such as hiking, biking, golf, shopping, ski & snowmobile trails, ice fishing, and more, make Leech lake one of Minnesota’s top vacation areas.
