Yellow River State Forest In Iowa Is A Big Secluded Treasure

When it comes to exploring the outdoors, many Iowans head to our famous great lakes or popular state parks that were built by the Civilian Conservation Corp. While the lakes are gorgeous and the state parks are full of history and plenty of amenities, sometimes you’re craving more of a rustic getaway. When nature’s calling your name, head east and find Yellow River State Forest waiting for you.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
