This was our first time as a family to Okoboji. Not knowing anything about the area, I chose the Fillenwarth mostly because I could tell that it was within walking distance to Arnold's Park. Overall, we had a great stay and will stay at the Fillenwarth the next time we come to Boji and this is why... 1. They provide... More

On a quick, unplanned visit to the area we found Fillenwarth Beach & were pleasantly surprised. It was off season so rates were very reasonable & no 2 night min. While the room was tiny, it was clean & just what we wanted right on the lakefront. We were very impressed with the amenities - they have EVERYTHING - complimentary... More

We had a great stay at Fillenwarth. Staff was friendly, activities were numerous and proximity to shopping and amusement park were excellent. Main lobby area does need some upkeep and rooms are what they show in photos - pretty basic and not much decor. Playground equipment needs attention - just outdated. The boat cruises were fabulous and we looked forward... More

Everyone in our party (6 people) was hooked within our first 24 hours. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute, and booked next year, same time, same room, before we left. A lot of nice personal touches from management. this place isn't for everyone - I would not go there if you are looking for a "ritzy" place to stay - but... More

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,...
