Things to do during "cabin time" in Underwood
Cabins in Underwood and Fergus Falls, MN in Otter Tail County embrace the shores of Bass Lake and nearby North Turtle Lake and South Turtle Lake. They belong in Otter Tail County, a county that is home to over 1,100 lakes. This makes Otter Tail the #1 county with the most amount of lakes in a county, plus it was voted Top 10 by Boating Magazine. You can also float for hours down the Otter Tail River, fish the many lakes in the area, windsurf and enjoy the miles of sandy shorelines in the area that give way to great water play. Underwood is a great lake town perfect for a northern Minnesota cabin getaway. It is remote enough but close enough from larger cities that it is just the answer to your next vacation.
Many other natural landmarks highlight this once glacial area. Maplewood State Park is one of the largest state parks in the area, stretching 9,000 acres consisting of largely diverse landscapes and wildlife with a swimming beach as well. The Otter Tail Scenic Byway highlights 1,000 lakes and roadside sculptures, giving way to fantastic views. Enjoy a vista with the highest panoramic view of them all and that is Inspiration Peak in the Leaf Hills. This still largely kept secret pans over 50 miles of lake dotted landscape. This half mile hike onto the top is worth it. Parking is available.

This popular event in nearby Fergus Falls is the area’s largest art and craft event in the summer that gives ample shopping opportunities and live entertainment.
