Hoefle-Dulin Recreation Area

A lovely, quiet river campground along the Cedar River only minutes from downtown 

Vinton. This 46 acre area is a perfect fishing spot and place to put in kayaks or tubes 

to take a trip downstream to Wildcat Bluff Recreation Area. The Cedar River offers 

anglers opportunities to fish for black crappie, channel catfish, freshwater drum, 

largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, northern pike, rock bass, walleye, yellow bullhead, 

and shovelnose sturgeon to name a few. Be sure to check out the gorgeous view of the 

East Bluff from the river.


Hoefle-Dulin Recreation Area offers an open air shelter, pit restroom, river access, and

 a playground. This area is open to hunting September 15 - May 15.
