Resort AmenitiesTrapper's Landing Lodge is a new family resort, built on the foundation of a fine traditional Minnesota lake location. Leech Lake is steeped in the traditions of fishing, hunting and yes, trapping. Fishing and hunting continue to be favorite summer and fall activities. But water skiing, tubing and going for a family pontoon ride are also among the list of favorite resort activities.
Today's ResortThe resort is currently a blend of traditional 1950's cabins and a rustic log lodge setting, with welcoming, newly constructed lake homes named Lakeside Lodges, and Hudson Bay Cabins that are designed with "old-world" charm, but include all the modern amenities you desire for your vacation getaway.
There are complimentary activities for every season along with some fee-based activities provided at reduced rates to our owners and guests. These activities are marketed under the EXPLORE! name and have been created as supervised activities with something for all ages. Bikes, outdoor movies, Kids Camp and water sports are offered in the summer, snowshoes and a full DVD library are favorite winter activities.
The Merit Log Lodge is a historical landmark and home of the BeachFire Grille. This is the place to enjoy a relaxing summer meal with family, or meet your friends on the patio for a cool and refreshing summer drink. The lakeside view can be enjoyed from the main dining room, the downstairs lounge, or the outside patio.
Enjoy the north woods, traditional Lakeside Sauna just steps away from the lake - perfect for a quick plunge!
The outdoor pool, new in spring 2008, is a great place to enjoy a summer's day. There are plenty of lounge chairs for relaxing, plenty of pool toys and even pool games for the kids. The Splash Poolside Grill will make your summer days totally carefree. Order appetizers, burgers and sandwiches, and specialty summer drinks and enjoy them poolside.
The Marina is the key to a no hassle vacation on Leech Lake. Trapper's Landing Lodge Marina has everything you need to enjoy summer on the lake! Your family and friends will enjoy hours on the water whether reeling in a record walleye, relaxing on a pontoon or jumping waves on a jet ski. Before you hit the water stop at the Trapper's Landing Lodge Marina for everything from snacks and sunscreen to rods, reels, tackle and bait. Chat with our staff and other boaters to learn the day's hot spots. Pick up a map of the lake and rent your fishing boat, pontoon or jet ski.
