About Parks Marina

Parks Marina on East Lake Okoboji was established in 1983 when Leo “Butch” Parks purchased the then Gibson Sporting Goods. What was once a small fishing boat sales and repair facility has expanded into a diversified three-location business, with marinas, sales, service, storage, boat rentals, pro-shops, specialty retail stores, and now a brand new 2500 sq ft event space called "Parks Boat Club".

Parks Marina on East Lake Okoboji also features the World Famous "Barefoot Bar" - your authentic tiki bar in Northwest Iowa! Bring a date, bring your kids, bring your parents, bring friends, bring your pet! Everyone is welcome. Live music and real live palm trees too! The Barefoot Bar can work perfectly as your casual rehearsal dinner or even a bachelor or bachelorette party!

One of our 9 excursion boats can fit perfectly for a small wedding ceremony, quick getaway cruise for the wedding party, or even the wedding reception. We offer many different venue options at our unique Parks Marina property - just ask!

    They gave us a wonderful rehearsal dinner. The food was great and the staff did a wonderful job of making sure we were taken care of, even on a busy Friday night.
