Canoeing & Kayaking


Canoeing the Upper Iowa River in Winneshiek County, IA
Lake canoeing in Cerro Gordo County, IA
Fast water in Briggs Woods Park in Hamilton County, IA
Canoeing the Wapsipinicon River on a canoe trip in Linn County, IA



One of the best and "green" ways to explore Iowa is via a canoe or kayak on any one of hundreds of lakes, streams, rivers or ponds across the state. Nearly 600 county conservation areas allow canoeing/kayaking through over 675 stream or river accesses. Whether it is a quiet float down an interior river or stream in scenic northeast Iowa, or challenging the great Missouri River to the west along the Loess Hills - great opportunities abound! Iowa is still developing a listing of fast-water availability around the state - but by utilizing these many accesses already provided, many diverse experiences await your exploration!
