When first discovered by a party led by the explorer Zebulon Pike in the early 1800's, it was believed that Leech Lake of north central Minnesota was the headwaters of the mighty Mississippi River. Although it was ultimately determined that the neighboring Lake Itasca held this particular distinction, Leech Lake has emerged as a stunning vacation destination in its own right. This extraordinary lake is completely surrounded by the majestic old world trees of the Chippewa National Forest. Southeast of Bemidji, the lake itself is located primarily within the Leech Lake Indian Reservation. All in all, Leech Lake is an ideal destination for folks looking to truly immerse themselves in the beauty of the North Woods.
Lodging is plentiful here at Leech Lake. The lake boasts more than thirty resorts, campgrounds, lodges and hotels along its shores. If larger scale accommodation choices aren't your ideal, consider the unique experience of renting or purchasing a houseboat here along the waters of Leech Lake. Furthermore, there are gorgeous lakeside cabins and homes scattered along the shoreline, providing the perfect bit of privacy and independence for travelling families. Whether you are looking for a short-term rental, a long-term lease or to purchase your very own lake home or lake lot here along Leech Lake, you will almost certainly find the perfect solution here. Be forewarned though. Properties here move quickly and hesitation may cause you to lose out on a great opportunity.
Historic towns such as Walker, Minnesota, can be found on the shores and in the vicinity of Leech Lake. Originally founded in 1896, the town of Walker was named after Thomas B. Walker, a logging industry tycoon, in an effort to entice Mr. Walker to construct a sawmill to the area. Unfortunately, the town's efforts were for naught; Thomas Walker constructed his mill elsewhere. Even though the town's initial efforts failed, subsequently, several sawmills and paper mills moved into the area in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Leech Lake also became famous when the Battle of Sugar Point was fought here in October of 1898 between the Ojibwe Indians and the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment of the United States of America. Once the logging resources of the Walker and Leech Lake areas were essentially depleted, the beauty of the land and lakes made it a natural choice for those seeking a little rest and relaxation in the North Woods. Leech Lake and the Walker area have remained popular vacationing destination ever since. Filled with resorts, historical attractions, antique and gift shops, art galleries along with some of the most welcoming folks you will likely ever encounter, Leech Lake is a paradise for travelers seeking a respite from the pressures of the outside world. Local dining establishments offer traditional Minnesotan cuisine including wild rice soup, desserts made with wild berries, fresh dairy products and walleye served every delectable way imaginable. Adults in your party will be delighted by the nearby Northern Lights Casino, which provides excellent evening entertainment.
Whether you are seeking a relaxed vacation in the great outdoors or more cultured activities, the Leech Lake is sure to offer the perfect combination of activities for your dream vacation. Classic Minnesota pastimes such as hiking, boating, ATV riding, snow-mobiling and fishing are always popular. For a bit more thrill, consider observing a bison up close and personal on the "bison bus" of nearby Nevis. Experience the thrill of air exploration by helicopter or small charter plane. Golfing is a great way to unwind for the sportsman in your travelling party. Play a round of two at LongBow Golf Club, Tianna Country Club or the Wedgewood Golf Course, all championship courses here in the North Woods.
As is true of many lakes in northern Minnesota, Leech Lake is a wonderful source for muskie and walleye fishing. Leech Lake is one of the larger lakes within the state of Minnesota; it is, in fact, the third largest lake in Minnesota, covering over 100,000 acres with a maximum depth of 150 feet and approximately 200 miles of shoreline. Fascinatingly, Leech Lake is also known for the eel pout, or Burbot. The elusive creatures are rarely seen except for the cold months of winter. Consequently, Leech Lake holds the annual International Eel Pout Festival in February. Guests leisurely dine at a black-tie affair, bowl on the ice and compete to catch the largest eel pout here at the International Eel Pout Festival.
So, if you are looking to get away from it all without sacrificing fun and excitement along the way, consider a trip to the fabulous Leech Lake and its surrounding area. It is sure to be a vacation you will remember for a lifetime!
