Emmetsburg is a family friendly and growing community in northwest Iowa as well as the county seat of Palo Alto County. Founded in 1856 by Irish immigrants, the community is known for its Irish cultural heritage and annual St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in addition ti its outstanding educational and athletic traditions, local businesses & cultural opportunities, but especially for its location on the south end of Five Island Lake.


At around 1,000 acres, Five Island Lake stretches 5 miles southwest to northeast with Emmetsburg’s Soper park at the southern tip and Five Island Bay just north of the midway point on the western shore. While more residents are choosing to enjoy the advantages of lakeside living, much of the area remains farmed or wooded, creating a secluded retreat perfect for fishing, boating, swimming and a host of other summer and winter activities. Residents and visitors alike often think of Five Island as a hidden treasure, less crowded but still conveniently nearby the attractions of the Iowa Great Lakes.
