Yellow River Water Trail Map & Guide


Use this guide to plan your paddling trip down one of Iowa’s most remote water trails. Located in the far northeast corner of Iowa, the Yellow River Water Trail meanders through forested hillsides, rugged limestone outcroppings and a rural countryside far removed from noise and people. The pocket-sized guide provides information on river mileage, access points, and campgrounds, as well as background on the geology and history of the area. Individual sections of the water trail, ranging from four to fourteen miles, are described and mapped in detail.

*Updates & Corrections
June 2020: The “Prairie” primitive campsite no longer exists due to flooding.

The guide is also available for download in PDF format, or for pick up at no-charge from several Northeast Iowa locations.
