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!
