When is the best time to visit the Fort Dodge, Iowa area?

Fort Dodge has four distinct seasons, so choosing the right time to visit depends on what you want to see and do while you're there. With average high temperatures in the low to mid-80s Fahrenheit from June through August, summer is by far the most popular time to visit the city. Keep in mind that humidity is also high, so afternoon thunderstorms are common. Plus, if you're looking for a good deal on a hotel, this is not the season to find one.

Autumn in Fort Dodge brings falling temperatures and dropping hotel prices. September starts out with average highs in the upper 70s, but by November, these highs have dropped to the upper 40s.

If you're looking for the best hotel deal possible, you'll want to plan your visit to Fort Dodge in the winter. However, to take advantage of these low prices, you'll also have to deal with weather that isn't ideal. From December through February, average highs are in the 30s, and each month sees an average of 7 to 9 inches of snow. While you won't be enjoying many outdoor activities during winter, most of the indoor attractions are still open.

When spring rolls around to Fort Dodge, temperatures start climbing up again. While March sees average highs in the upper 40s, by May, you'll be able to enjoy highs in the low 70s.
