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

Concert in the park giving...

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...

We stayed here for 1 night in July with my in-laws and brother-in-law. My brother-in-law worked this summer at Camp Foster nearby so we just needed a place for the 1 night he had off between camper sessions. Since my father-in-law booked the room I can't speak for how much he paid or what kind of value it was. I...

We struggled to write this review of Fillenworth. My wife and boys 12 and 15 thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and took advantage of the included water skiing, manager's reception (live band and free drinks), and several cruises. The people working there are a model of customer service and were uniformly friendly, informative, and enthusiastic. Why we didn't rate this five stars...

Our family has vacationed at Fillenwarth Beach for most of the past 25 years. It is a very laid back, comfortable place to enjoy family, do nothing, or be active all day. What it is: comfortable, (somewhat rustic) accomodations; friendly helpful staff; lots of activities offered throughout the day; beautiful lake; opportunities to spend lots of time on the water...

My husband and I book the same cabin each year and feel like we are coming home when we arrive at an annual gathering with friends. We like "our" cabin so much that we have never stayed in the apartments fronting Lake Okiboji (although curiosity encourages me to take a look at them next year). The cabin is equipped with...
