On the Lake

Boating on Leech Lake

Leech Lake Location


Leech Lake was created in 1882 when the Leech Lake Dam was built, raising the water level enough to connect 6 different lakes. This history and the shear expanse of the lake lend to its many points, narrows and islands. Directly in front of Trapper’s Landing Lodge is Pipe Island, a small piece of land that makes for the perfect landmark when trying to find your way back to the resort after a long day of fishing.

Kayaking and Canoeing


Trapper’s Landing Lodge has canoes and kayaks available for guests to use at no charge.

Check-out a man-powered craft for up to two hours and explore the lake – you’ll be able to get a close-up look at wildlife, easy access to the lake’s many islands and a great workout to boot! A peaceful canoe or kayak trip is a great way to watch the sun rise or set over Leech Lake. Visit the marina to reserve your canoe or kayak.
