Top 7 Things To Do This Fall In Warroad

Fall Warroad, MN

There are so many hidden gems around the Warroad area to do this fall. Let’s take a look at a few of the top things visitor like to do.

  • Fish the open waters of Lake of the Woods. Book a charter trip or BYOB (Bring Your Own Boat). Fall fishing is some of the best fishing in the midwest.
  • Explore Beltrami Island State Forest trails by bike, ATV, foot, even horse.  There are campgrounds so you can stay and enjoy the great outdoors day and night.  From there, take the trail that leads you to Hayes Lake State Park.  More trails and hiking, a beach, and a picnic area await you for an afternoon lunch.
  • Rent kayaks, paddle boats, or canoes from Doc’s Harbor Inn. You”ll cruise up the Warroad River and weave among the cattails and lily pads.  If you find yourself along the Warroad River or the shores of Lakes of the Woods, stop for bit to see the different bird species. Warroad is home to many seasonal birds who nest in the marshes of Muskeg Bay.
  • Bikes are available to rent from Doug’s Supermarket.  Ride through town on the paved bike trails and take in the changing of the leaves.  Or challenge yourself to the trails of Beltrami Island State Forest.  There’s a new multi-purpose trail connecting the bike trails of Warroad to Bemis Hill in the forest.  It’s a nice ride and a straight shot to the hill. 
  • Get lost at Country Corn Maze. This year’s theme is Hockey Day Minnesota.  See if you can navigate your way through a field of corn and find your way out the other side.  There are hayrides, bale mountains, a covered corn pit, a campfire, an ark with animals, and more. 
  • When it comes to fall, nothing is better than the ATV Fun Run in September.  Ride your ATV through the forest with your friends!  Watch as the fall colors begin to show up.  There’s a different theme every year.  Stop and play games at designated locations to win prizes.  Finish it off with a meal and picnic at Carp’s Pit.  It’s all sponsored to raise money to go back into trail maintenance in the forest.
  • Experience spectacular scenery perfect for a northern Minnesota color tour. If you arrive before the leave reach full color, you may be in luck to see more than 2 million orchids or other wildflowers that bloom along a 75-mile stretch on Highway 11 from the first of May all the way to mid-Sept.
