Lake Okoboji information

We are thinking of dragging the XStar to Okoboji for a week this summer. I've never been there and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on where to stay that might have slips that could be rented. I would rather not pull the boat each night if possible.

Any areas better than others? Thanks for any and all suggestions!

I've stayed at Fillenwarth Resort a couple of times. While I believe you can use a slip, we chose to use one of their many mooring buoys. Great place and great location.

I actually live in okoboji, just purchased myself a 13 star as well. Looks like similar color combo as yours orange/black/white

The best lake time to be had is during the week. It can get pretty choppy on the weekend.

Check out bridges bay for a place to stay they have a nice lot for trailers and a decent lake location. I'm not sure about renting a hoist though

We reserved a spot at Fillenwarth the last week of June. And luckily we will have the whole week, so should get 4 or 5 good days of skiing. Keep an eye out for a family with a bunch of hydrofoils hanging off the racks.

Consider heading to Lake Minnewashta early in the morning. It is connected to the East and West Okoboji. Water is not a clear as West and it will seem like you have to turn around rather quickly, but offers calm water in the morning. For a nice rest, drive through the Harbor on the North end of West. Kinda cool. Oh, yea, make sure you get a Nutty Bar at Arnolds Park. It's a tradition.
