The town is located about an hour from Des Moines, making it a popular vacation home spot for those who prefer to spend their weekends away from the city. Residents enjoy scenic views of rolling hills and wooded areas, as well as many outdoor activities, such as hiking, biking, golfing, fishing, boating, and water sports. Living in Lake Panorama is truly a wonderful experience! Call us today to learn more about housing options in the area.

COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION: The Lake Panorama Association (LPA) was established in 1968 from the efforts of property owners. The governing board comprises seven elected members responsible for ensuring the community’s preservation and maintenance. One of their key responsibilities is to keep the region’s beauty intact. From pruning every bush to mending every fence, the LPA labors to maintain the area’s appeal. They make sure every zoning rule is met. The association’s unwavering dedication ensures Lake Panorama remains a gem for future generations.

LAKESIDE AMENITIES: Along the lake’s shores are three idyllic beaches. Boulder Beach, located on the east side of the lake, is the largest of the three. This beach offers sand volleyball, pickleball, tennis, and basketball courts for members and their guests. Sunset and Shady Beaches are on the west side of the lake. These beaches feature amazing playground equipment, docks to park your boat, swimming areas, and volleyball courts. For golfers, there are two public golf courses that offer different experiences for all levels – the 18-hole Lake Panorama National Championship Golf Course located on the east side of the lake and the 9-hole Panorama West Golf Course just on the west edge of the lake property. You can purchase memberships at both courses or pay a daily rate. There is a beautiful swimming pool and hot tub near the 18-hole course, which you can enjoy for a small daily fee or purchase a yearly pass.
