Barrett, Minnesota A picturesque village nestled in a valley in West Central Minnesota


Welcome to Barrett, the little town with big dreams!

The City of Barrett lies along the Pomme De Terre river which flows through beautiful Barrett Lake and is located in grant county in west central Minnesota. Barrett is famous for its community atmosphere.  It has a variety of recreational areas, vibrant organizations, and dedicated businesses which make Barrett what it is: The little town with big dreams!


One of our great recreational areas is Barrett Lake. Barrett Lake features two public accesses, a public beach, a fishing pier, and the Barrett Lake Resort & Campground. A new bridge and dam were recently installed with a fish ladder leading to the lake. Barrett Lake has excellent fishing year around and the recreational possibilities on Barrett Lake are endless.


Barrett is famous for its historic buildings. Have an event you want held at a one of a kind location? Why not try the Historic Barrett Lakeside Pavilion. The community of

Barrett has been working hard to restore and renovate this treasure. The Lakeside Pavilion is owned by the City of Barrett and is available for rent. Or maybe you just want some entertainment. Pay a visit to the Historic Roosevelt Hall, home of Prairie Wind Players, who offer a full season of plays, concerts, including dinner theaters.


You don’t want to miss the “Annual Old Settlers Reunion” held every year the weekend nearest to June 24. It is a celebration filled with dinners, dances, parades, classic cars, ball games, and contests of all kinds, including a firefighters challenge.


Maybe you just need a break, try Powers Park. Powers Park is a lovely park taking up one square block in the center of town with plenty of shade, a picnic shelter, a new basketball court, and new playground equipment. The park is across the street from the Barrett Community Center, which is also available for rent. The park

is also connected to the West Central Area Secondary School by a paved walking path, and adjacent to a natural prairie environmental area. We hope you get a chance to come relax and enjoy this beautiful park.


If you are tired and want to stay try one of the cabins at Barrett Lake Resort & Campground. We welcome you to come and see - The little town with big dreams!
