Wide Open Spaces – Iowa Lake, Mountain, and Countryside Resorts

At the Water’s Edge

Adventureland Resort. Adventureland Resort combines the non-stop fun of an amusement park with the splash-tastic experience of a waterpark. From rides on the A-train to the waves at the Breaker Beach wave pool, from a spin on the carousel to a wild ride on the Dragon coaster, your group will have an adventure they’ll never forget. The Inn offer 185 guest rooms, including poolside rooms and suites, as well as a full-service campground. Three large pools, a swim up bar, and relaxing hot tubs prove the saying, “life is a beach!” Discounts available for both large and small groups. On-site catering available.

Grand Harbor Resort and Waterpark. Hugging the banks of the mighty Mississippi River, the Grand Harbor Resort is within walking distance of historic downtown Dubuque. Welcoming visitors to one of Iowa’s greatest onsite water parks with thrilling water slides, indoor/outdoor tube ride, rope ladders, waterspouts, lazy river, activity pools, and two giant hot tub whirlpools. The resort invites guests to relax in any of their 193 relaxing rooms and suites with picturesque views of either historic downtown, the lovely surrounding city bluffs, or the magnificent Mississippi River.

Travel Dubuque. Where Iowa started, Dubuque offers much to explore and enjoy. Thrill to a zip line ride, meander the river aboard an authentic paddle wheeler, surf the waves on a stand-up paddleboard, experience the vibrant arts community, and enjoy the area’s nightlife in pubs and nightclubs. Stay in any of their charming B+Bs, cabins or cottages, campgrounds or hotels. Taste the flavors cooked up at any of the city’s fine and casual dining establishments. Revel in a one-of-a-kind community that welcomes visitors like they are long lost friends.

Bridges Bay Resort. The perfect team getaway starts at Bridges Bay Resort in Lake Okoboji. The Boji Splash indoor waterpark makes a splash with all the guests, featuring tube slides, lazy river, and water cannons. SkyRider Zipline rides add to the thrill. Retreat to the waterfront hotel rooms for relaxation or comfortable waterfront hotel condo for groups up to 12. On-site dining is superb, serving up everything from flatbread pizza to steak and seafood. And if your group needs entertainment options, there are plenty to choose from including four outdoor pools and swim up bar, fitness center, arcade and game room, and private, fully-stocked fishing pond.

On the Course
