(1998) state park. It is located on the shores of East Lake Okoboji and represents one of the last remaining open spaces in a region that is among Iowa’s most popular tourist destination – the Iowa Great Lakes. The eighty acre park was a generous gift of Berkley and Elinor Bedell.
The campground consists of 8 RV campsites with full hookups, modern rest room, and a trailer dump station. Each campsite has a picnic table and fireplace. A small area has been set aside for youth groups to tent camp. A playground is located near the campground. Advance campsite reservations can be booked through the park reservation system. Half of the campsites are available for self-registration on a first-come/first-serve basis.
East Okoboji and the many other lakes in the area are some of the prime fishing spots in Iowa. Anglers will find challenging sport pursuing a variety of game fish, including walleye, northern pike, smallmouth bass, white bass, perch, bluegills, crappies, catfish, and bullheads.
