The Volga River Recreation Area is located in one of the most scenic parts of the state. Northeast Iowa is often referred to as "Little Switzerland" because of its rugged topography, geologic features and substantial timber cover.
The Volga River, which meanders through the 5,420-acre area, holds smallmouth bass, rock bass, channel catfish and white suckers. Its banks harbor nesting wood ducks and shorebirds.
There are 32 non-modern campsites with a portion of the camping area being available for equestrian campers.
