Ready to hit the water? At over 112,000 acres in size, Leech Lake is the ideal destination for all kinds of boating and sailing. Canoeing, kayaking, jet skiing, paddle boarding, water skiing, wakeboarding, and tubing are among the favorite water sports on Leech Lake! Sailors flock to Leech Lake all summer long, especially during the Leech Lake Regatta, a three-day-long sailing festival held every August since 1971. Come enjoy the colorful sails as the boats race around the harbor!
Once you’re on the lake, you’ll find it’s difficult to leave — and the great news is, you don’t have to! Give yourself an extra day of relaxation by booking a stay in an all-accommodating houseboat right on the lake, or on one of the campgrounds on the beach! Need a boat? There are plenty of boats and pontoons available for rent right near the shore. Always wanted to give sailing a try? Sign up for a sailing lesson!
