Fergus Falls / Elbow Lake / Ashby, Minnesota

About the Area

Fergus Falls is the largest city in Ottertail County at a population of around 13,000 residents. It is a very well-kept and scenic community, with numerous city parks and a historic flavor about it. The RiverWalk is a central feature of the community, where you can take a stroll along with the surrounding nature, bordered by interesting homes from many years past. If you are looking for a longer journey, Fergus Falls is also the head of the Central Lakes Trail, which is a full-use paved trail that winds along lakes and ponds on its 55 mile path to Osakis to the southeast.

Located in the southwestern portion of Ottertail County, Fergus Falls is a bit removed from the expansive water bodies east toward Battle Lake and north toward Pelican Rapids. But the region still has its share of lakes in the 500 to 1,500 acre range - and many smaller ones - that offer extensive choices in lake homes and cabin properties. Since the city is right on the western edge of lake country, you will find most of these larger bodies to its east and south along the Interstate 94 corridor - and also near Ashby and Elbow Lake.

The larger lakes near Fergus Falls are Ten Mile Lake, Wall Lake, Stalker Lake and Swan Lake. Jewett Lake and Long Lake are also decent sized water bodies north of Fergus Falls toward Pelican Rapids, where waterfront real estate is popular for residents of both cities. And Pelican Lake, Pomme de Terre Lake and Barrett Lake offer the most lakeshore to the south and southeast toward Elbow Lake and Ashby.
