Most Popular Area Attractions

Detroit Mountain

Set just minutes east of Detroit Lakes, Detroit Mountain is a year-round, local-favorite ski and snowboard destination in central Minnesota. Although the mountain most known for its winter recreation, summertime activities like hiking, birding, and biking are equally as enticing.

Don’t miss the Strider Adventure Zone, ideal for young riders, as well as the Skills Course, Downhill Flow Trails, and Contour Flow Trails. Of course, the skiing isn’t half bad either – Detroit Mountain features over 20 ski trails available after late November.

Otter Tail Lake

Located in the western region of Minnesota, Otter Tail Lake is a part of the larger chain of lakes formed by the 192-mile long Otter Tail River. The lake is roughly 21 square miles – featuring plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities for Ottertail County visitors.

Avid anglers won't want to miss casting out for a chance at walleye and Northern pike – both are considered plentiful. The lake can be found near the aptly named city of Ottertail – only a short drive from communities like Fergus Falls and Detroit Lakes.

Pebble Lake Golf Course

Designed by Paul N. Coates, Pebble Lake Golf Course is a must-play course in Fergus Falls. On your next tour of northern Minnesota, be sure to book a tee time for the Pebble Lake Golf Course – you can drive in from nearby Detroit Lakes.

The course has been open since 1941, offering 18 holes of championship golf, a variety of special events, and features the Tavern 59 Watering Hole & Grill. Moreover, the course and its dazzling rolling terrain and tree lined fairways are boastfully fit for any skill level.

Prairie Wetlands Learning Center

Located in the Townsend Waterfowl Production Area, the Prairie Wetlands Learning Center is a 330-acre area near Fergus Falls, dedicated to the study of wetlands and prairies. The center contains more than 20 wetlands, native prairie land, and more than 180 species of birds.

The center is operated by the state of Minnesota and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Stroll through the Visitor Center to view the exhibits or bring along comfortable shoes and a camera for hiking along the 3.5 miles of trails.
