Great Lake, several boat launches, fish were uncooperative. The town is quaint and friendly. Don't look for your favorite chain restaurant, because there aren't any but give the local places a chance and you won't be disappointed.

It was close to town, big sites with electric, water and sewer all at your site. The bike trail is paved, very nice and dogs are allowed on a leash. We went to a couple new brewery's that was fun, along with a farmers market, Arnold's park and some boating all in one weekend.

Fun with friends at West Lake Okoboji. Enjoyed a cabin stay and boating. Wthile in the lakes area, visit the amusement park at Arnolds Park. Have a nutty bar and watch the sunset from the dock.

There are a few little shops in Spirit Lake that are worth visiting. One More Time, This and That, Fisher's Consignment, Red Door...that will get you started.

Easy to get around. The hospital is right off the main drag. Everyone seems so friendly. The only thing I would do away with , is that stupid 8 way stop by Walmart ! GET A STOP LIGHT !!!!!!!
