Every now and again, our gorgeous region in Dickinson County will surprise us with something special, and The Narrows just happens to be one of them. If you’ve dreamt of owning a large piece of paradise next to one of the Great Iowa Lakes, look no further.

This stunning parcel of land rests alongside East Okoboji Lake, the longest natural lake in all of Iowa (approx. 7 miles long). It also happens to be surrounded by the cherished Elinor Bedell State Park, a place where nature seekers can explore the beauty which is abundant in Dickinson County. Oak savannas, low bank lakeshore, and our peaceful prairies encompass this tract of 49 acres. It’s not every day you’ll find 2,020 feet of East Okoboji shoreline, especially for this kind of value.

The high point of this parcel is over 60 feet above the East Okoboji shoreline with a ridge that provides a stellar view of both the lake and countryside. The slope provides, even more, privacy the closer you build next to the shoreline. The Narrows is zoned for residential development at the low bank, as well as for multi-family for the rest of the land. A low bank shoreline allows for an easy boat slip and dock implementation, not to mention no steps!

This portion of East Okoboji is nearly a mile wide by a mile long and has a close connection to part of the Elinor Bedell State Park trail at the south end of the property. The northern tip of the property features vast views of East Okoboji Lake and Big Spirit Lake. The southwest view from The Narrows shows “The Grade” where East Okoboji meets West Okoboji. The location couldn’t be any better as this portion of East Okoboji is a little quieter in comparison to the south part of the lake; and, easy access to West Okoboji is literally at your shoreline.

This is a one-of-a-kind chance to build your East Okoboji Lake real estate private playground with the generous amount of pristine property that’s offered at The Narrows or, with the variation in terrain and sight lines, development potential here is huge! Imagine living here next to one of the best lakes in Iowa, surrounded by a unique oak savannah. Here are some more features to take note of:

  • Balance: Multi-family zoning
  • Existing road
  • ILEC Electric adjacent
  • Lakeshore-Single Family/Duplex
  • Water and sewer lines cross the property
