We had a fabulous time for four days at Okoboji. Our room was right on the beach and the weather cooperated so we could take advantage of the sun and the beautiful view. Our room was terrific and super clean. We took advantage of the free paddleboats and wen down the canal to view the homes and get some exercise.... More

WE had a condo with the loft and it is a perfect place for a family or even two as it has a kitchen, on the beach and in a perfect setting to enjoy the water. We all loved it. Hoping to return later this summer & definitely next summer.

So I looked on the Internet and saw that this would be a great place to stay with our children. I called today hoping to get a cabin because they had the dates I wanted open. When I called to reserve the cabin which I had emailed about the front desk lady informed me it was an "inconvient time" because... More

great place for large family reunion that consisted of 40 people from age 80 to 1. The lake access and trampolines were fun. Kids loved the playground and it was nice to be near the bike path as well.

The beach is the greatest feature, but the lakeside rooms with picnic tables to accommodate all families are wonderful. Activities for the kids were well organized. the staff does a good job of keeping outsiders off the beach.

Stayed during off peak season for a week. The rooms and grounds are extremely well maintained and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. There's a nice beach area and several walking paths near the grounds.

Its not crowded, at least when we were there, we had the whole beach and boardwalk for ourselves. The staffs were very helpful and kind.... More

Crescent Beach is a great place for families. It has an awesome beach mere footsteps from the rooms. In fact, I would say that CB has one of the best beaches around. It is small and it will get crowded, but it's a nice beach, not rocky. This is not a 5-star hotel. It's a family-run establishment with guests who... More

The pros are many at this family resort-with very few cons. We are a family of 5 and have stayed at many resorts, condos, and cabins in Okoboji over the last 15 years. Crescent Beach is a clean "lake cabin" type resort geared towards families. You name it-they have it! Bonfires to boat hoists, tennis to paddle boats and everything... More

I read the other reviews and discovered that people's expectations really vary!! We have stayed at Crescent Beach for over 25 years. We have weathered floods, wind storms, management changes, etc. but one thing that has never changed . . . if you want a relaxing vacation on the lake in Okoboji, I wouldn't stay anywhere else. It is pricey,... More

“The flying cloud condos were great. Next time we would consider the sioux cottage for our family because for a little extra you get more privacy with your own yard and deck. Important to know that the large, beautiful windows facing the lake on the upstairs flying cloud condos don't open. :( We missed hearing the splashing waves at the shoreline.”
