In the fall and winter seasons, you have your choice of 2 or 3 bedroom cabins that are always kept spotless and feature cable TV and wireless internet.
One of the best reasons to visit Leech Lake is the amazing world renowned year round fishing. Big Rock Resort offers boats rentals and even a guide service to help you make the most of your time on the lake. Once winter comes, the ice fishing at Leech Lake is just as good as the warm weather fishing.
Besides fishing, Big Rock Resort offers many other fall and winter activities for the whole family, including deer, duck and grouse hunting and snowmobiling. Another winter attraction at Leech Lake is the annual Eelpout Festival held every February in the nearby town of Walker, MN.

Make sure to book early, since Eelpout Festival attracts 10 times the population of the small town of Walker each year.
Big Rock Resort also features a lodge that’s the perfect place to get together after a long day on the lake. The lodge was built in the traditional Northern Minnesota style with log siding on the exterior. The lodge features two large fireplaces and a big screen TV to curl up in front of after a long day outdoors. The lodge also carries ice cream cones, beer on tap, sandwiches and pizza made to order, groceries, snacks, fishing tackle, souvenirs and supplies. Your children will love the game room complete with a pool table and video games.
If you’re looking to explore the area outside the resort for a while, the town of Walker offers many unique shops, a variety of restaurants and even a casino for you to try your luck!
