Carrot River's name is​ derived from the wild carrots which grew riverside when the first homesteaders crossed in 1911 to inhabit a 10-km stretch from the river's north bank. The Canadian National Railroad reached the Carrot River site in 1931 bringing southern farmers seeking new locations away from the great drought on the prairies. In 1941, Carrot River became a village and was incorporated as a town on April 01, 1948. Currently the combined town and rural population is in excess of 2000 people.

Residents have been described by non-community individuals as stubborn and ambitious. Stubborn as in resilient and ambitious as in visionary. With the proximity to field, forest and water, Carrot River's economic strengths lie in agriculture, industrial, service-related business ... and tourism. Officially branded as SASKATCHEWAN'S OUTBACK in 2015, the community strives to showcase all things OUTBACK. Fringing lakes, rivers, forests and the Pasquia Hills, everything they do is out-back - hike, camp, barbecue and picnic, paddle, horseback, archery, target and skeet-shoot, fish, boat, ATV, snowmobile, snowshoe, crokicurl, cross-country ski ... THAT'S LIFE HERE!
