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.
