We went to this lakeside place for dinner on a Saturday night. We were in Clear Lake for a family reunion so there were quite a few of us scattered across several tables. For a fairly small place, they had a menu that offered numerous choices of burgers, sandwiches, salads, etc. My husband had a burger & said it was... More

Always great food and fantastic service. It's wonderful to sit outside right by the lake. The menu is perfect for casual dining and the prices are reasonable. The Tiki Bar is a blast at night! Highly recommended.

We like to eat at local places and even though this place took us around 10 minutes to get to after getting off the highway....it was worth it! We were able to sit outside by the lake and the service was amazing! The food was delicious!

The rooms are quant and the beds are comfortable. They have a cabin feeling to them. They serve Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner until 10:00pm. Enjoy a Breakfast buffet on Saturday's. Hang out at the Tiki Bar next to the Lake and enjoy live music on some weekends. Great Location!

We spent the night because we have eaten and went to the Tiki bar here before. We rented a room in the original part. The room was quite small but had everything we needed but a blow dryer. But we knew this place was like indoor camping when we booked the room it would be great for a family stay... More

My husband and I have stayed at PM Park a few times over the last few years. You can't find a better staff anywhere - everyone is great. The managers, Cris and Rahn, are hands-on and keep the place in tip-top shape. This is our favorite place to go in the Clear Lake/Mason City Iowa area! Fantastic! Oh, and a... More

Thanks for the great review, I'm glad we made you happy but we are not pet friendly, our insurance company, the county health department and property owners have decided for the public's safety that we should be pet-free. Come back and see us anytime :) More

What a gem of a spot! We came from Minneapolis for a surprise birthday party for my cousin who lives near by. There were around 75 people for the party in the restaurant area. So fun and festive how they have it decorated. From the moment we got there we felt so warm and welcomed by Chris the owner. We... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
PM Park was established in 1913 by the Patriarch Militants as a kids camp, later the mess hall turned into a restaurant and the dormitory turned into the hotel, we added the Tiki Bar in 2007. Nothing fancy, just as it was then, it is now. We are located on the shore of Clear Lake. If you are looking for old-fashioned vacationing in a laid back lake setting you will be happy here. If you need all the luxury, or any for that matter...we are not the choice for you. Call us for lodging options, we have simple rooms and apartments to cabins and cottages. ... more   less
