Echo Valley State Park

Echo Valley is a 100 acre natural area owned by the Iowa Deparment of Natural Resources and managed by the Fayette County Conservation Board. The park preserves many historical structures handbuilt by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930's. Echo Valley recreational opportunities include picnicking in the shelter house, trout fishing in two seperate trout streams, hiking the Echo Valley Environmental Nature Trail, or camping at one of the park's primitive campsites. Hunting is not allowed in the park but the adjacent state-managed Glovers Creek Fish and Wildlife area is open for public fishing and hunting.
