A total of 2901 depth measurements were made in Lake West Okoboji, Dickinson Co., Iowa in the summer of 1962 using a non-recording echo sounder. These were used to construct a morphometric map of the bottom topography. The area of the lake was found to be 1540 Ha., the volume 184 x 10 to the 6th m³, maximum depth 42.7 m, mean depth 11.9 m and length of shoreline 30.0 km. No changes in the morphometry of the lake could be detected since it was last mapped in 1913.
