Click to read about our area.
We are open year-round (November 1 - April 1 by advance reservation only) and welcome anglers (trout, bass, and walleye) hunters (deer, turkey, and pheasant), and nature lovers (hiking, biking, and floating the river).

The Upper Iowa River is canoe-able for 110 miles from Lime Springs to the Mississippi River. The distance seems to divide naturally by scenery and campgrounds. The most scenic section, with the 100-200 foot Lime Stone Bluffs, Waterfalls, Mud Swallows, Eagles and abundant wildlife, between Kendalville and Bluffton, and then on to Decorah.
