One of Iowa’s newest and most remote wilderness areas and one of only three true canyons in Iowa, this 563-acre site offers a 2-mile-long, 200-foot-deep canyon, mature forests, open prairie, sky-high vistas, hidden caves, a winding river, and absolutely no development. Just purchased from private owners and still mostly unknown, Whitewater offers a real chance to explore unknown territory.
