About Parkers Prairie
Parkers Prairie is located about 20 miles north of I-94 at the Alexandria exit in West Central Minnesota. Parkers Prairie was founded as early as 1868 with a General Store on the shores of Lake Adley and incorporated in 1903.
Parkers Prairie became a reality when two men, Parker and Adley, blazed a trail to Otter Tail County through dense timbers and marshes and arrived on a beautiful prairie. Legend has it that they climbed a tree and discovered a beautiful lake on the edge of the prairie.
