Wow! We had heard a lot about Filenwarth but it still exceeded our expectations! Great for all ages and fun for all ages, especially the daily cruises. The staff of this family owned resort are what make it memorable. Everyone voted to have reunion back here next year! I highly recommend it!

Last year, I said that even though we loved staying in "our" cabin, we were going to look at the apartments on the water. Well, we did more than look, we stayed in a Chateau unit on the Main Beach. We liked it so much we reserved it for next year. While we entered our unit at street level, at... More

The staff is wonderful. There is so much for the entire family to do. The location is absolutely perfect. I cannot say enough about this destination. The kids were able to water ski every day. If you get a chance, jump on the sail boat for a ride and then relax on a family cruise.

We've made the trip to Okoboji every year for the last 20, and all but the first few have been to Fillenwarth. It's synonymous with Okoboji and summer for our family. The accommodations are tight, but you don't spend that much time inside, even with bad weather. The staff are always friendly, courteous and helpful. Activities for all ages are... More

The location is perfect. The included activities are a bonus. It is old fashion excellent relaxing family fun. We couldn't have asked for a better value. If you want to be local and in the heart of it this is the ace to be

We have been to Fillenwarth a couple years now. The resort is in the perfect location! It is within walking distance to restaurants, bars, the Emporium, and Arnold's Park (amusement park). We make multiple outings a day and get more than our fair share of food, sun, and exercise! We love that cruises, skiing lessons, and sailing are included in... More

If you are looking for a luxury resort complete with a spa and the standard exercise facilities, Fillenwarth Beach is not your place. However, there is so much to be had here. FB is your typical beach town resort with the look and feel of the places you've seen in the movies, those places with the quaint cottages set back... More

Fillenwarth is a wonderful family resort. So many activities for the kids to do. Free boat rides, crafts, getting acquainted party! We go back every summer! Cabins are recently updated. Quick walk to emporium and Arnold's park. Great time

We traveled to Okoboji for a family wedding, deciding to make it a family vacation. With four siblings families and extended family in tow. We were able to get accommodations close to the proximity of what we were there for, plus a bonus of other activities. Condo located on the water, great location, and amenities. Concert in the park giving... More

Located right on the lake, it's just what you want for a budget summer vacation. Paddles boats, pools, games and barbecues. You can self-cater - kitchen and big BBQ out on deck - or dine out at the many restaurants. My cabin had one bedroom and, bizarrely, another double bed in the living room. I think the coach also folded... More
