ATV/UTV & Snowmobile Information

No ice is 100% safe. Be aware of ice conditions!

Do I need a State of Iowa User permit for my snowmobile and/or ATV? 

The simple answer is Yes! – IOWA RESIDENTS: all snowmobiles must have a user permit, yet OHV’s are not required to and proof of insurance required on all vehicles.

NON RESIDENTS: all snowmobiles and OHV’s must have user permits & proof of insurance required. User permits can be purchased at the Dickinson County Recorder’s Office in the Courthouse on the corner of Hill Avenue & Hwys 9/71 and anywhere hunting & fishing licenses are sold. (Oak Hill Outdoor, Stan’s Bait & Tackle, Kabele’s Trading Post, Okoboji Boat Works, Fisherman’s Factory Outlet, Walmart, and more!)
