Hey IFC! So I decided to fly around Lake Okoboji in Northern Iowa. Now most of you probably don’t think “Spring-Fed Lake” when you think of Iowa, but trust me it is a sight to behold! It is even more beautiful in person!
Info about the Lakes: The Lake on the Left is West Okoboji, the smaller lake (that looks like a river) next to it is East Okoboji, and the northern greener lake above East Okoboji is Spirit Lake.
So here’s the info about the flight:
Route: VFR around Lake Okoboji including 0F3 and 4D8 airports
Aircraft: Cessna 208 Caravan
Flight Time: 14 minutes
Before we get to the flight, here is Lake Okoboji from 100,000ft!
