Turkey River Corridor

As an Iowa Great Place, The Turkey River Corridor in Northeast Iowa, is unique in its geographic size and potential. It truly is a regional great place. The communities of Clermont, Elgin and Elkader in Fayette and Clayton Counties are linked by the special, scenic beauty of the Turkey River corridor. Visitors relish in the abundance of wooded hills and rich rolling plains, streams and rivers, diverse wildlife and recreational opportunities. The corridor communities are linked in a common mission to develop and enhance the existing natural resource base of the Turkey River Corridor through the creation of land and water trails infrastructure.
