Welcome to Lakes Area Powersports. As a locally owned small business, we are proud to be an integrated part of our community. We take pride in contributing to our local economy and supporting our fellow local businesses. Located in the heart of the beautiful Leech Lake area, Lakes Area Powersports is your northern Minnesota’s premiere all season powersports dealership located just north of Walker, Minnesota on HWY 371. Winter brings Polaris and Ski-Doo snowmobile sales and service. During the summer, there is a full line of Toro & Stihl lawn and garden equipment, Polaris generators along with Polaris ATVs/Rangers/Side by Side, Can Am ATVs/Defenders/Side by Side vehicles and Sea Doo watercrafts. We have a vast array of clothing and accessories for each of the product lines and in 2016, we introduced the KLIM line of riding gear. Last year, FLOE docks and lifts were been added to our product offerings. New for this year, we are carrying Manitou pontoon boats and Evinrude E-tec outboard motors.  Our full service shop is staffed with three extremely skilled full time technicians to take care of your service needs. 

We are a family-owned and operated business with a personal passion for powersports. We are focused on growing our dealership by focusing on providing quality customer service. Our mission is to provide exceptional products through exceptional service by exceeding the customer’s expectations, and we are committed to building and protecting our reputation within the communities we serve.
