River's Bend Wildlife Area is a newly developed recreation area with a 20 acre lake, near Big Sioux River.  Prairie habitat was planted around the lake for wildlife.  Fishing jetties were built, bank stabilization achieved with riprap material, and the lake was stocked with bass and bluegill in 2015.  A concrete boat ramp allows access to the lake for non-gas powered boats. There is NO SWIMMING ALLOWED!!

In 2016 a picnic shelter and restroom were added and we began work on a campground.  The campground is now finished, there are 10 sites, each with electricity and water!  The cost is $20 and a park ranger will make regular rounds.

In 2018 the Conservation Board made it legal to hunt River's Bend from October 15th - January 10 in accordance with the Iowa DNR regulations.
