For more than a century, Okoboji has been the ideal destination for family vacations. The most popular way to enjoy Okoboji is by spending time in or near its six pristine, glacier-carved lakes. Relax on the sandy beaches that dot the water’s edge. Fish in waterways locally known as an angler’s paradise. Or swim, ski, boat, sail, windsurf or kayak through the lakes’ crystal blue depths. Of course, the Lakes Area provides an ideal backdrop for land-lovers, too, with its lush parks, winding nature trails and beautiful golf courses.
