Detroit Lakes Minnesota Water Sports

Summer Water Sports in the Detroit Lakes Area & surrounding Becker County

With over 400 lakes within a 25-mile radius, it's only natural that summer water sports are so popular in the Detroit Lakes area.

Detroit Lakes provides a public swimming area on Little Lake Detroit that features a beautiful mile-long sandy beach. 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. Water 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. With14 miles of shoreline, there's plenty of room for skiing fun. For family fun, rent a pontoon for cruising the lake.

Whatever kind of water sports fun and adventure you have in mind, you'll find it at Detroit Lakes.
