We stayed in the cottage community and enjoyed our accommodations and plan to come back next year. I came to Village West and The Inn as a kid, and now that we have our own family, we wanted to start our own traditions. Fillenwarth is by far the closest thing I could find that evokes the memories I have from... More

A group of friends and I have been going to Fillenwarth Beach every year for four years now, and we have no plans of stopping anytime soon. We decided that this would be an annual trip in the first 15 minutes that we spent on our balcony overlooking the lake during our very first year. Our group goes slightly up... More

Awesome place to stay. Free boat cruises and water skiing and so much more make this place well worth it. Great college kids working there. Within walking distance to Arnold's park area is very convenient and fun. Totally want to come back. We stayed in the tree top #426 which was pretty musty. But it was the only place they... More

Fillenwarth is a delight for young and old. You can rent anything from a single room to a cottage that covers more than one family. The owners are caring and attentive to their guests and to the property, and the young people servicing every phase of the property truly try their best - and are not allowed to take tips.... More

As a child we went to Fillenwarths each summer and I had the greatest memories of it. So when it came time to find a place for my family to convene while we visited from out of the country, this seemed like a nice and easy option. It worked out perfectly. The room rates are hilariously over priced, more expensive... More

In my opinion, Fillenwarth Beach Resort is the BEST place to stay in Okoboji. We have held our family reunion here for the last 10 years. With a 4-bedroom family unit we can all stay together in one location and can prepare meals together as a family with the kitchen and bbq. The resort amenities include boat rides, water skiiing,...

My wife and I went for a quick side-trip to Lake Okoboji, which she had never seen and I had not been back to for 40 years. A friend suggested Fillenwarth Beach, and it could not have been more perfect. Everything about the stay was good, and the staff was always friendly and helpful.

We had our wedding party stay at the resort. Was the best idea. Close to all of the restaurants and bars in the area. Also extremely close to Arnold's Park Amusement Park and the Emporium. When arriving we were greeted by a lovely gift and a phenomenal view of the lake. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Overall cleanliness... More

We've been coming to Fillenwarth Beach for three years, 2015 will be our fourth year. We have always enjoyed clean rooms on the daily and the staff is very attentive. The beer tasting and the lake cruise are included (amongst other activities) and they never disappoint. The location is central to most of the local establishments as well. Thanks Julie... More
