Three Amazing Paddling Opportunities in Up North in Minnesota

Canoeing is a peaceful way to enjoy the beauty of Minnesota’s 10,000 lakes, and we are fortunate to have many fantastic paddling spots around the Walker area. Here are three locations to check out if you’re looking for a great place to canoe or kayak.

Sucker Bay on Leech Lake is a nice, protected bay to paddle in, and if you’re a fisherman, it’s an excellent crappie location, especially in the late spring and early summer months. Two particular areas to check out around Sucker Bay are Sugar Point and the eastern edge of Battle Point.

The Pike Bay Connection Loop has the look and feel of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness but is in Chippewa National Forest. This loop features eight gorgeous lakes and an opportunity to see wildlife like bald eagles, moose, and deer.

Cut Foot Sioux Lake is a 2,800-acre lake located in northern Minnesota’s Itasca County. The shores of the lake are heavily forested and beautiful. Paddling here offers peaceful seclusion, breathtaking beauty, and fishing.
