The Iowa DNR Bends to Beaches water trail is initiated by our partners at the Clinton County Conservation Board and makes stops in both Clinton and Scott Counties.

With favorable conditions at the Center, you may access the Wapsipinicon River at the low-impact access along the River Trail. The Center offers overnight facilities for day trips or accommodations for longer stays can be made and it is recommended that you schedule well in advance as the beauty of the Wapsipinicon River attracts many throughout the seasons.
