Welcome to the
City of Ottertail, Minnesota website!

ATTENTION OTTERTAIL CITIZENS AND PROPERTY OWNERS:  Please Self-Register for Emergency Weather Alerts.  Click here to read the Important News tab!

A small city of 572, Ottertail offers municipal water, fire/rescue protection, shopping opportunities, health care, a convention bureau, Thumper Pond Resort and golf course, friendly and affordable small town and county living in beautiful lake county of Otter Tail County.  5 Lakes consisting of Ottertail Lake, the largest in the county, Donald’s, Long Lake, Portage and Buchanan accessible within the city provide vacation opportunities.  1 hours from Fargo and 2 hours from the Twin Cities, Ottertail provides lots of hometown pride as a growing community with plenty of room to grow. 

Ottertail is beginning the process of its first Comprehensive Plan and developing economic development strategies and policies to guide future development in the City.  The Plan will give guidance on how the citizens of Ottertail see the planned growth in the community.  The City Council will be looking for public input through its newsletter, this web site and other forms of communication.  Check out and complete the survey which will provide insight for a full range of important topics related to planning and development.  Contact City Hall for a paper copy of the survey.

As the City moves through this process, there will be many opportunities for public input.  Watch for these details in the coming months so that the City can gather thoughts and opinions from the people that matter most.  The City looks forward in hearing from you!
 

You can ask anyone of our residents, year-round or seasonal…here, it’s the people…the friendly faces…the feeling of community that beckons and keeps visitors returning year after year, those that live here wouldn’t live anywhere else.

It’s the Community Pride that shows on these faces.  Plenty of work goes into making sure that everyone enjoys their stay in Ottertail, from Otter Fest to Otter Dazzle…there’s always something to do.

With all we have going for us you’ll enjoy your stay and maybe call Ottertail your HOME!
