Located on Highway 11, just five miles south of the Canadian border on Lake of the Woods, Warroad is ideally situated and equipped to offer you the opportunity to enjoy many activities in northern Minnesota.
The local residents like to say that Warroad is known for three things: walleyes, windows and hockey. And indeed this is the case. Warroad is currently the only American port on Lake of the Woods, making for quick, easy access to fishing on “the big lake.” It is also home to Marvin Windows and Doors, a company known internationally for its quality products, corporate integrity and family heritage. Finally, Warroad’s infamous moniker, “HockeyTown USA” boasts of its proud hockey legacy.
And Warroad is so much more! Not only does Warroad offer excellent summer fishing and ice fishing, there is also hunting and other outdoor activities for any season. Interested in exploring the region? Due to its central location on Lake of the Woods and Highway 11, Warroad can be a great “base camp,” providing all of the necessary amenities for your adventures as well as comforts of town after you spend the day taking in all the area has to offer.
Warroad also has plenty of indoor activities such as shopping, swimming, and glow-in-the-dark mini-golf for the family. Win big at the Seven Clans Casino, catch a hockey game nearly any time of the year (be sure to check out our own Olympic “Hall of Fame”), or take in a production of the Warroad Summer Theatre.
These are just a few highlights of the many attractions Warroad has to offer. To help you plan your next vacation, we’ve provided a Lake of the Woods Bucket List. We invite you to check it out and look forward to serving you.
