About Us

The Turkey River Recreational Corridor is an Iowa Great Place made up of the communities of Clermont, Elgin and Elkader and historic Motor Mill in Fayette and Clayton Counties. These locations are linked by the special, scenic beauty of the Turkey River. Visitors relish in the abundance of wooded hills and rich rolling plains, streams and rivers, diverse wildlife and recreational opportunities.

Our mission is to connect Clermont, Elgin and Elkader to develop and enhance the existing natural resource base through the creation of land and water trails to serve as the catalyst for economic growth and development.
