My family stayed in a quaint yet adorable 2 bedroom apartment over the 4th of July. Thursday thru Sunday for appx $325 + tax. Great deal! Apartment was very clean and comfortable! Only downfall was the tiny bathroom. Restaurant at PM park served amazing breakfasts! The tiki bar area was cool- always busy and lots of fun- free bags games... More

To be honest, I came to this site and was a little worried by a couple of the bad reviews I read here. My best friend was getting married at PM Park on July 27th. I emailed my reservation to Chris, who runs the joint, since my buddy's fiance advised this was the location for the rehersal dinner, wedding, reception,... More

I am the third generation of my family to spend every weekend at our lake home at PM Park. All 12 of us drive from all over Iowa every weekend to be at "the lake." It is truly our favorite place, especially now that I've gotten married and transitioned into my "adult life." A major reason that I love the... More

I traveled there with my childhood friend - it was a perfect middle ground meeting place between Des Moines and Minneapolis. It was NOT the Ritz, but it never claimed to be! The beds were a little, uh, "bouncy", but who needs a fancy schmancy bed anyway? They were appropriate for the limited amount of time that we spent in... More

After attending a wedding in Nashua, Ia (Little Brown Church in the Vale), we went to the wedding reception in Clear Lake. Once that was over, we checked in at the PM Park where our room was reserved. Room #10. It was the worst place in our lives that we ever stayed (except for my stint in Iraq). No TV.... More

The time we spent at PM Park this past summer was very relaxing. Between the great food and drinks, meeting all the people made it a great place. The staff is full of wonderful girls that make sure you feel welcome. I would recommend PM Park to anyone who wants to relax right next to the lake.

My wife and I stayed at PM Park this past July for a relative's wedding. It is kind of difficult to write a review for the place, it is a very…unique setting. I’ll probably never be in Clear Lake IA again, and if someone I knew was heading there with just their significant other and/or kids, I’m not sure I... More

My husband and I just recently exchange our vows of marriage at P.M.Park. I could not have found a better place for us to get married. Don't listen to the other negative review P.M.Park is a wonderful place to spend your wedding day or even spend a day out by the lake. We also rent two of the room next... More

After reading the review by danjulz156 I laughed so hard I had tears rolling down my cheeks. I don't know when I laughed that hard. If you are looking for manicures, pedicures, massages and high colonics, you need to head north to Minneapolis. However, if you want to just relax in a rustic setting that includes knotty pine, rag rugs,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
PM Park was established in 1913 by the Patriarch Militants as a kids camp, later the mess hall turned into a restaurant and the dormitory turned into the hotel, we added the Tiki Bar in 2007. Nothing fancy, just as it was then, it is now. We are located on the shore of Clear Lake. If you are looking for old-fashioned vacationing in a laid back lake setting you will be happy here. If you need all the luxury, or any for that matter...we are not the choice for you. Call us for lodging options, we have simple rooms and apartments to cabins and cottages. ... more   less
