Silver Sioux Recreation Area

Visit this great timber area along the Little Sioux River. A variety of amenities like a lodge-style cabin, modern campground, picnic areas, amphitheater and trails are provided. The land within the park bears historic features that span hundreds of years, from mysterious native burial sites located in the 1950s to the buildings erected by homesteaders in the 1800s. Bring your boat or canoe and enjoy some time on the river. Check out the swinging bridges!

Woodland birds like the Northern Oriole, Eastern Bluebird, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Northern Cardinal, Screech and Great-horned Owl, and a variety of thrushes and woodpeckers live in this forest. A bird feeding station is maintained year-round with a blind for viewing.

Spring wildflowers are common here. Wild Sweet William, Dutchman's Breeches and Bloodroot are all common. Remnant and reconstructed prairies add variety to a hike along the park’s mowed trails. Grassland and woodland birds are both abundant.
