There’s nothing quite like boating on East Okoboji Lake. We encourage all our guests to explore its vast, clear waters. That’s why we have even more boat hoist rental spaces as of summer 2017. We also have a new floating dock for friends and family around the lake to temporarily park and come ashore to Bridges Bay Resort.  

You’ll have direct lake access to over 2,300 feet of lakeshore. Our 6000lb hoists are available for rent and can accommodate up to a 29ft bowriders, deck boats or fishing boats. There is one hoist with the back rail removed in order to accommodate inboard/wakeboard boats. Our hoists DO NOT accommodate pontoons.

Reserve a hoist

We encourage anyone interested in reserving a boat hoist; not inclusive to just hotel guests, to contact us to make your reserve for a hoist. Boat hoists are usually available for rent mid-May through the end of September. 

Hoists are $100 per day and require full prepayment 30 days before your arrival.

Planning on getting out on the water? Visit the Iowa Great Lakes Safety Council for safety information.
