About the Wildlife Area

Bridging the lines between Dubuque, Jackson, and Jones counties, Whitewater Canyon Wildlife Area is one of the jewels in the Dubuque County Conservation Board system. This 419-acre area is open for public hunting during state designated hunting seasons. It is also a favorite with hikers, wildlife watchers, and anglers casting a line in Whitewater Creek. This property has one of three true canyons in Iowa along with several geological caves. Whitewater is approximately five miles northeast of Cascade, Iowa.
