Lake Okoboji

www.mfairlady.com/paddling-lake-okoboji/

 

West Okoboji Lake is about seven miles long and up to two miles in width and it is the largest of a chain of five connecting lakes, which is considered part of Iowa's Great Lakes.

 

It is one of only three lakes in the world that are considered to be a blue water lake. The other two are Lake Geneva in Switzerland and Canada's Lake Loiuse. These lakes are fed by cool, fresh, subterranean springs.
