    The Fergus Falls Area Chamber of Commerce is a membership based organization which serves its member businesses and the community. We are located in the heart of West Central Minnesota’s premier lakes country destination, Otter Tail County. With its nearly 1100 lakes, rivers, streams and trails offering an abundance of recreational options, its a great place to grow your business.
