Heads Up: Detour Ahead

Highway 71 between Spirit Lake and Okoboji will be undergoing some improvements in 2023. While Bridges Bay is not located on this highway or near the construction site, it may impact travel plans to and throughout the region during your stay.

Construction will begin Spring of 2023, with a pause between Memorial and Labor Day, and will pick up again this fall.
