Approximate property boundary locations in relationship to Elinor Bedell St. Park and 250th Ave.
The 'lower tier' of property is what two-thirds of what all lakeshore buyers crave: low bank, walkout level lakeshore frontage! The entire 2,020+/- feet of lakeshore are at this elevation to the water!
This 49+/- Acre property features three distinct tiers each with it's own benefit and overlooks. The top "tier" or ridge line afford tremendous views to both the east and the west. It also includes a beautiful grove of Maple trees on the southeast portion of the property. The southwestern shoreline features approximately 500 feet of mature oak grove shoreline interspersed with towering walnut trees.
Approximately one mile to the far shore.
Looking southwest to "The Grade" where East Okoboji meets West Okoboji with subject property in the foreground.
East Okoboji is Iowa's longest natural lake approximately 7 miles in length with connectivity to West Okoboji, Upper & Lower Gar, and Minnewashta lakes.
This portion of East Okoboji is approximately a mile wide by a mile long: regardless of the strength of the wind, the waves never get very big in this part of East Okoboji.
Two towering Walnut trees close to the south end of the property.
Looking to the east as the property forms "The Narrows" The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) owns a full section (640 acres) of upland and wetland public lands immediately east and north of the property providing privacy, protection, abundant wildlife, and water quality enhancement.

Dense Oak grove on the south 500 feet of shoreline (plus or minus) providing plenty of shaded building sites.
