Located in western Otter Tail County, home to over a thousand lakes, the lake is never far away when you’re in Pelican Rapids. Whether you want to swim, fish, boat or simply relax on the shore, the lakes are a way of life here. With friendly people and unique shops, even rainy days hold the promise of a good time!

Historical monuments bring our rich local history to life, and the “flock” of pelican statues scattered throughout the area adds to the town’s rich arts scene. City parks and recreation provide entertainment and activities throughout the year. Or you can enjoy a scenic lake view drive down Highway 108 to reach nearby Maplewood State Park, with its camping sites, hiking trails, and breathtaking views.
