About the Area

The Ottertail County Area is filled with lakes, and many of them are incredibly large and clear.

And that is one thing that makes Ottertail County a favorite lake cabin destination.

Ottertail Lake is the largest at nearly 14,000 acres. But others such as West Battle Lake, Rush Lake, Dead Lake and Big Pine Lake are around 5,000 acres or more, and are home to thousands of lake cabins and waterfront homes. And because many vacationers enjoy the social atmosphere that is unique in small town America, they are also attracted to the area by numerous resorts, restaurants, taverns and other small town businesses that rest on the banks of the lakes and just off of their shores.
