The City of Storm Lake permits the installation and use of private docks along public park land on the north shoreline of Lake Storm Lake (all public land within the corporate limits of the City of Storm Lake). The dock site locations are marked with a sign which has the dock site number on it. There are a total of 51 sites that are along the public park land.

The fee for a dock permit is $25.00 and each hoist is $10.00. Dock Permit fees are paid annually in March and April and are payable prior to the installation of docks and/or hoists.  Applications are available at the City Clerk’s Office which is located on the first floor of City Hall at 620 Erie Street, Storm Lake, Iowa or click here to complete the application online.
