to Fergus Falls, the gateway to more than 1,000 lakes in
Otter Tail County. The friendly people in this community of nearly 14,000 enjoy an
excellent quality of life and are happy to share it with visitors. The scenic parks, beautiful
Otter Tail River and the arts, welcome residents and visitors every day. Pebble Lake, the
Pebble Lake Golf Course and DeLagoon Recreational Park offer enjoyable recreational
opportunities in surroundings of natural beauty. Our public library offers quality service
and is a source of pride for residents and visitors of all ages – an expansion is in the works.
The fine arts are a shining star in our community. The Fergus Falls Concert Association,
A Center for the Arts, M State Fergus Falls and our schools provide the most entertaining
and enjoyable fine arts experiences available in west central Minnesota. History is
preserved and celebrated in our people, places and stories. The Otter Tail County Historical
Society connects visitors and residents to the past through exhibits, tours and events.
Hit the trail if you have time – snowmobile trails, the Pine to Prairie Birding Trail, Central
Lakes Trail and Otter Trail Scenic Byway each offer a unique perspective of the area.
An excellent quality of life is evident in every aspect of our city; our schools boast updated
facilities and programs of learning. Our regional health care system features the latest
medical technology and staffing excellence – Lake Region Healthcare just opened its new
$30 million state-of-the-art clinic late in 2015. If you are looking for a great place to call
home, our city and chamber staff can help with business and family relocations and new
business development. Economic development and opportunity await entrepreneurs, or
businesses looking to expand or relocate in our varied and well-planned commercial sites
and industrial parks.
From Exit 54 off of I-94 you’ll find the primary commercial and hotel area. Continue
driving east on Lincoln Avenue beneath the tree lined canopy into downtown – and
you’ll be greeted by coffee shops, eateries, boutiques and antique stores. Stop in the
Chamber of Commerce for additional assistance.
