With properties running along the Iowa River to a timber oasis off the beaten path, Iowa County Conservation offers a large and amazing variety. Some of the properties are a less inhabited than others, so you can get what you are looking for. Would you like to go camping with your friends and hit the beach? How about hike alone, with your dog? You can do it all at our many properties. The largest recreational area is Lake Iowa Park. This park includes an 83 acre lake, campground, nature center, bird blind and trails. Since 1962, visitors have enjoyed fishing, camping, picnicking, hiking and swimming. Winter sports such as cross-country skiing, ice fishing and winter camping are also available. For all your environmental educational interests, Naturalist programs are offered throughout the year.
