In 1994 the All Seasons Activity Center was completed at Rotary Reserve. Funding was provided through fund raising efforts of the Waterloo Rotary Club and the building was constructed by personnel of Black Hawk County Conservation. The Rotary Reserve is a unique, quiet retreat area managed by Black Hawk County Conservation in conjunction with the Waterloo Rotary Club.  This building can be rented for wedddings, parties, and business retreats.  Contact Black Hawk County Conservation for rental information.

Public hunting is allowed in the designated area along the Cedar River east of the Rotary building.  Look for public hunting signs.  The area is bordered by the Cedar River to the east and railroad tracks to the west along with private property to the south.  Please respect private property and obey all local, state, and federal hunting regulations! 


The Rotary Reserve is located on the west side of the Cedar River, northwest of Cedar Falls. The entrance drive is located opposite the corner of Mark Road and North Union Road.
