Due to it's unique location at the continental divide, rain falling in Otter Tail Lake flows all the way to Hudson Bay (Canada) via the Red River of the north, while rain falling just a short distance away into Leaf Lakes follows a southern route, traveling a wandering path all the way to the Gulf of Mexico. Early explorers would portage from Leaf Lake to Portage Lake to Donald Lake to Pelican Bay on Otter Tail Lake and be on his way through Canada to Hudson Bay.
