Lakeside Casino Resort, which opened on January 1st, 2000, is Iowa's newest riverboat casino. Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, Lakeside Casino Resort doesn't require a "boarding pass" and cruises once daily in the months between April and September. During the on-season, the boat sails from 7:30am to 9:30am Monday through Friday, and 7am to 9am on the weekends. Come sail away with us!

Lakeside Casino Resort is home to the SS Osceola, which is a casino boat with two decks totaling 37,480 sq. ft. This is rather large boat, but what is amazing is its wide stance and four-point maneuverability allows it to cruise in shallow water. Despite its size, the hull only sits about 6-7 ft. deep into the water. It has four powerful outboard engines, one on each corner.

We cruise during the summer months, weather permitting and when water levels and lake conditions are satisfactory. We cruise on West Lake, which makes Lakeside Casino Resort unique because we do not cruise on a river.
