Halstad has many recreational opportunities to keep your body healthy and your mind happy. If you are looking for world class fishing, drive down to the Halstad Landing on the Red River to catch yourself a 25 pound catfish, take your vintage snowmobile for a cruise on the river, or join in a game of kittenball – on ice! We have something for everyone, with quiet parks, basketball courts, an indoor community fitness center, and much more!

Catfishing on the Red River is always an adventure! This local fisherman caught over 20 in one day. It is an adventure and a challenge to find the local hot spots.
