About Lake Park, IA

Where you can spend a vacation, or a lifetime!

Lake Park is a friendly community located in Dickinson County in northwest Iowa near the Iowa Great Lakes area. Situated around beautiful Silver Lake, the first settlers arrived in the Lake Park area by horse or oxen teams in the 1860s. Lake Park was later incorporated in 1892, ten years after the railroad pushed through the area.

Over the past 150 years the town and community has endured fires, blizzards, tornadoes and other calamities that have tested the towns strength; yet, Lake Park continues to flourish to this day. But no community can survive without the help of volunteers and organizations. Lake Park has several groups that contribute to the well-being of the area. Along with the organizations, Lake Park has three churches that provide spiritual leadership for its citizens. Lake Park has an array of things to do in the great outdoors with their parks, their lake and the many acres of public lands in the area. Silver Lake alone is nearly two square-miles in size with camping offered at two lakeside locations. The Iowa Department of Natural Resources has many public areas for hunting or just getting back to nature. The golf course offers nine challenging holes of golf and the Heritage Square Museum shows how life used to be in Lake Park. The Harris-Lake Park school district has twice been named one of America’s best schools by U.S. News & World Report, and a separate report by the Des Moines Register found the Harris-Lake Park grads have the highest grade-point average in Iowa’s public universities. Lake Park’s new high school, community center, athletic complex and bike trail add together with all the town’s other amenities to make it a great place to spend a vacation or a lifetime!
