Bring your own boat, canoe or kayak (or rent one) for fishing, water skiing, or just exploring. A public boat launch provides parking for those launching boats there. Boat and equipment rentals are also easy to find at the many local marinas.
The area also offers some of the finest inland scuba diving in the country. Local guide services provide diving lessons, and are available to assist in your underwater exploration. Detroit Lakes water sports fun doesn’t stop on the surface! Explore the lakes and rivers on kayak or canoe expedition. You can rent the equipment to get you on your paddling on your way. Want a more casual tour? Enjoy a warm day while tubing down the Otter Tail River. If speed is what you need, water ski Big Detroit Lake. With 14 miles of shoreline, there’s plenty of room for skiing fun. For family fun, rent a pontoon for cruising the lake.

MINNESOTA TRIPADVISOR GUEST
“We enjoyed our stay at The Lodge in Detroit Lakes, Mn. The staff was very helpful and very friendly. We stayed in the Resort Room adjoining to the Retreat Room. It was very nice for our family so we could have access to each others room and to have use of a Kitchen. We were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary and our son was participating in the Pine to Palm Tournament. Nice location to golf course & downtown. The rooms were clean and the amenities of having a dock for our boat and use of paddle boat & Kayakes was especially nice. We enjoyed the complementary breakfast; especially the waffles and pancakes. The Ice water cooler was very refreshing. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Lodge & will be back on any future trips to the Detroit Lakes area.”
