End of Summer at Leech Lake in Minnesota

We have the good fortune of having generous friends with a place on Leech Lake near Walker, where we joined them for the long Labor Day weekend.Leech Lake is a large, shallow lake, ideal for fishing and water sports. However, its distance from the Twin Cities metro area (about four hours) limits the number of people who vacation here. There is still undeveloped shoreline and, even on a holiday weekend, there are seldom more than a few boats visible at any given time. It is a lovely, relatively quiet retreat.

Our friend’s place is at Trapper’s Landing, a resort that also offers various ownership options. It has a good location on the south end of the lake, with a scenic island just offshore and a nice beach.
