It was ok, but won't go back. When you rent a place on a lake, you should be able to look out and see the lake. I mean I can sit at home and watch TV or stare at the walls. And they need to put a washer and dryer in the unit and a grill on the deck. And...

Just checked out of West Oaks on Beautiful Lake Okaboji, Arnolds Park, Iowa. Had unit 301. 2 short flights of stairs, but the bonus is a top floor unit with lake view and no one or no deck above you! The unit next to us blocked a tiny bit of the lake, but we still had the gorgeous sunset! The...

had a great time with our family. With the winter weather, one just never knows; but what the heck, we stayed in and had more together time. The pool could have been alittle bigger. The property had a great game room with full kitchen and living area the men could watch the game while having food at the kitchen bar...

More editorial about staying in the area follows, but I’ll put what you really want to know first. This condo has a great location for being in the thick of it on West Lake Okoboji. It had a killer view with deck, and we walked or biked almost everywhere with Arnolds Park (amusement park) and The Emporium (shops) next door...

A friend and I came here for a week. Had never been to this part of Iowa before, and what a surprise and pleasure. The Great Lakes area of Iowa is beautiful, relaxing, fun and there are lots of things to do. West Oaks is the perfect place to stay, located right on the shore of West Okoboji Lake. They...

As native Iowans (now Minnesotans), my wife and I have visited the Iowa Great Lakes all our lives, and it's always the first place we think of when we want a weekend (or week-long) getaway that's close to home (3 hour drive from the Twin Cities). In 1996, we decided to do a fall getwaway with our children, who were...

I have stayed at West Oaks a number of times and have always found it enjoyable. Coming after Labor Day the hectic nature of Lake Okoboji in the summer is past. Most area restaurants are still open and the weather is generally pleasant. However, in northern Iowa September weather can be iffy. (During my stay the temperatures dropped from highs...

We've stayed at West Oaks twice, about 12 years apart, and have been pleased both times. Yes, the resort is showing its age but you can't beat the location and there's just a nice, family feel to the place. We traveled with our adult son and two small nephews and there was plenty of room, the unit was clean and...

West Oaks has a great location, in the heart of Arnolds Park. This makes it ideal for those wanting to go to the amusement park, which is great for kids 10 and under, teenagers would be bored. We walked to the park a few times and also took our boat. There are also many restraunts within walking distance, I recommend...
