Plan a Fishing Getaway

Of course, what dad wouldn’t love a weekend of the best fishing spots that Minnesota has to offer? With a multitude of fantastic fishing resorts, campgrounds, and lodges nestled along the Leech Lake shoreline, there’s a perfect choice for anglers of all levels.

We know that different dads prefer to fish in different ways, so whatever type of angler you’re treating this Father’s Day, we have just the thing!

For those looking for all the modern conveniences that allow them to kick back in between trips onto the lake, try the fully-equipped fishing resorts of Steamboat Bay Resort, Woodland Resort, Acorn Hill Resort, Hiawatha Beach Resort, Oak Point Resort, or Brindley’s Harbor Resort.


Book a Tee Time

One great thing about Father’s Day is that it takes place during a time of year that’s perfect for a few rounds of golf! The golf courses of the Leech Lake area feature breathtaking views of the lake and immaculately maintained grounds. In case Father’s Day weekend doesn’t work out for booking a tee time, you can also give a golfing gift certificate or tee time punch card!

These are just a few of the ways you can say “thanks” to the father figures in your life for all they’ve done. Still in need of some more ideas?
