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! These two local fisherman caught over 20 in one day. It is an adventure and a challenge to find the local hot spots.
Vintage riders bring their snowmobiles to Halstad each year to gather and show off their classic and often creative snowmobiles. The group rides on the Red River, awards several prize categories and gathers in the warmth of the LRC.
Bring your family or meet your friends at one of our two new city parks! Both parks are complete with updated playground equipment, swings, benches and picnic tables. The East Side park also has a nice shelter to rent with a kitchen. These parks are meticulously maintained by our city personnel and cared for by all that use them.
Take an evening pontoon ride to see the calm and beauty of the Red River using the recently updated Halstad Landing. The public river access is one of the most updated access points to the Red River in our area.
