AREA LAKES

Henry Thoreau once said…

"A lake is the landscape’s most beautiful and expressive feature."

We tend to agree. Fortunately, there are 1,048 lakes in Otter Tail Country. We have more lakes than any other single county in the entire United States! Our lakes are as diverse as the fish that live in them. Large and small, deep and shallow, wide and narrow, big fish and…big fish! With such a large selection of lakes, you’re certain to find one to your liking. Visit Otter Tail Country and our 1,048 reasons to go fishing, swimming, sailing, water skiing, and boating.
