A small city of 572, Ottertail offers municipal water, fire/rescue protection, shopping opportunities, health care, a convention bureau, Thumper Pond Resort and golf course, friendly and affordable small town and county living in beautiful lake county of Otter Tail County.  

5 Lakes consisting of Ottertail Lake, the largest in the county, Donald’s, Long Lake, Portage and Buchanan accessible within the city provide vacation opportunities.  1 hours from Fargo and 2 hours from the Twin Cities, Ottertail provides lots of hometown pride as growing community with plenty of room to grow. 

You can ask anyone of our residents, year-round or seasonal…here, it’s the people…the friendly faces…the feeling of community that beckons and keeps visitors returning year after year, those that live here wouldn’t live anywhere else.

It’s the Community Pride that shows on these faces.  Plenty of work goes into making sure that everyone enjoys their stay in Ottertail, from Otter Fest to Otter Dazzle…there’s always something to do.

With all we have going for us you’ll enjoy your stay and maybe call Ottertail your HOME!
