Land of Lakes

Our city shares views of the Upper and Lower Gar Lakes, West and East Lake Okoboji, and Lake Minnewashta. Since the late 19th century, Arnolds Park has been at the center of Iowa Great Lakes Corridor. Visitors would access these lakes by train and, upon arriving, journey on a steamboat to reach their vacation destination for playing baseball, enjoying fun water activities, and doing some rounds of trap and skeet shooting. You can experience the early years of this tourism at the Great Lakes Maritime Museum.

Bonus: Show up in style towing your boat with the latest Ford F-150!
