Leech Lake Public Access: Boat Landings
July 28, 2017
Leech Lake has a number of well maintained public access boat landings surrounding the lake, to ensure everyone has easy access to the water. In this post we have aggregated all the public landings into one easy to navigate layout so you can find and quickly get directions to the nearest Leech Lake public access point. Another, even easier way to get on the water and enjoy the lake is to stay at one of the Leech Lakes beautiful resorts, which all have on site boat landings. Most resorts will also allow non-guest boat landing use for a fee as well. If you are looking for a boat landing and somewhere to stay we recommend the stone and two birds solution – find Leech Lake lodging now. If you just want to test the waters before taking a long week at one of the resorts (no one comes to Leech Lake just once!), below you will find details on each Leech Lake public access point, including directions.
Leech Lake Public Access Points
Offering easy public access right off the highway onto Walker bay and directly next to the inlet to Kabekona bay this boat landing offers a sizable parking area and a wide ramp. The landings name also has some interesting background. According to local recollection, it is called Erickson’s Landing in remembrance of the one armed truck driver who originally owned the property, that is now public access.
Walker City Park Boat Landing
This is one of Leech Lakes best maintained public access landings, and often the busiest. Located just off downtown Walker and within the park the location is central to Walker Bay and offers very quick access to Agency Bay as well.
Shingobee Bay Public Access
This Leech Lake landing puts you in the very far south-western edge of the lake in Shingobee but is often quiet and offers extremely easy access to Agency and Walker Bays.
Stony Point Landing
The Stony Point landing offers one of the most central landings on the lake, it offers easy access to the center of the lake and is located between Traders Bay and Pelican Island.
Whipholt Roadside Public Access Point
Located directly between Rogers and Diamond points on a long sandy beach this landing offers easy access to the central southern portion of the Lake.
Brevik Town Boat Landing
Located just outside of Headquarters bay and near the southern tip of Bear Island this landing offers quick access to nearby weed beds surrounding the eastern side of Bear Island. This quiet public landing is gravel and offers limited parking.
Battle Point Leech Lake Public Access
Located nearly in the intersection of Boy and Headquarter’s Bays this well maintained landing offers a large parking area and a wide ramp with easy access.
Federal Dam Boat Landing
This very well maintained landing offers a large paved parking area and a very wide paved ramp. Offering easy access to great fishing around the inlet and easy central lake access.
Sucker Bay Landing
Another recently updated landing, this Leech Lake Boat landing offers a long gradual ramp a sizable paved parking area and quick access to the central lake.
We hope this post helps make getting on the water easier than ever before. Leech Lake Public Access points provide quick and easy access to all parts of the lake, allowing you to easily enjoy the water, whether you want to spend the day fishing, cruising, tubing, or skiing. If you just want to spend a day on the water or want to test the waters on your first visit to the area public access landings are a great option. However, if you are looking to truly enjoy all the area has to offer check out area lodging, and plan your next trip to Leech Lake. See you on the water!
