Despite being a landlocked state, Iowa has plenty of waters to be explored. Home to seven natural lakes
known as the Iowa Great Lakes, Okoboji is one of the best spots for water adventures. Join the ranks of
sailboats and pontoons dotting the horizon, grab a drink at a lakeside bar, or swim and catch some rays
at the beaches.
Sitting along the banks of the lake is Okoboji's classic amusement park, Arnolds Park. Full of tributes to Americana nostalgia, such as the wooden Legend roller coaster and a 92-year-old wooden slide, there's no better place to embrace your inner child. And the food scene is just as thrilling, with hand-dipped ice cream and the iconic Nutty Bars offering the perfect addition to an exciting summer adventure.
After enjoying all the fun in the sun, embrace Okoboji's night scene, on and off the water. Watch the
sun set over the lake while enjoying delicious food and drinks or live entertainment aboard The Fish
Shack, a fishing boat-turned-entertainment hotspot. You'll go home with memories and stories that will
make you want to come back next summer.
Head inland and take a step back in time with Okoboji's variety of museums. Stop in at the Classic Car Museum and see their always-changing stock of vintage cars that guarantee a new experience with every visit. Or experience Iowa's musical history at the Rock N' Roll Music Hall of Fame Museum.
