Otter Tail County Reviews

1 review
I really enjoyed living and growing up here. The only things I would ahnge would be the school, it is very cliqy and the sports are based on what your parents do for a job. But overall the community is very nice and most people are kind when you are out and about. Another thing I would change is something for hte young people mainly teens to do. Yeah we have a movie theature and ice arena but there is rarley open skate and the movie theature is expensive. It is leading to troubles with teens getting into trouble or doing things they shudn't be.
