The history of Lake Park spans back to the late 1800s, when the Burlington, Cedar Rapids & Southern Railroad began production. Our town’s inception occurred in 1892, and since then, this town has been home to around 1,000 residents. To this day, it lives out its motto as “a great place to spend a vacation or a lifetime”. Motor Inn of Spirit Lake is proud to serve this location with our new Ford vehicles, a fully-stocked used car lot, and a very knowledgeable service department.

Lake Park offers two campgrounds alongside Silver Lake. Park your Ford and set up your tent at the Silver Lake City Park Campground and South Shore Campground. Each site has rates by day, month, and season from April 15 to October 15 each year.


Dickinson County SnowHawks provides a unique club that sustains the county’s snowmobile trails. Each winter is a time for its members and their families to hit the trails, which total 100 miles. Throughout the year, the club grooms the trails and meets on the second Wednesday of each month. Use your Ford F-150 to bring your snowmobiles along.

Silver Lake City Park

The charming area along the lake is a perfect place for reunions, kids at play, and family picnics. In addition to the shelter house, picnic tables, and playground area, the park offers a fishing dock, swimming pool, tennis courts, basketball court, disc golf course, and sand volleyball court. Do you know how much you can fit into the trunk space of a Ford SUV? Enough for an amazing day at the park!

Heritage Square

Thanks to donations and hard work by the Lake Park Historical Society, many of the original buildings on Heritage Square are like new. Stop by the initial railroad depot from the 1800s. Lock yourself up at the original City Jail, and surround yourself with the feeling of home at a restored prairie house.

As you are in the area, make a short trip east and visit Motor Inn of Spirit Lake at 2702 17th Street in Spirit Lake, IA. Test drive one of our new Ford, new used & certified pre-owned cars, or service your family’s vehicle for a safe drive back home.
