Highlandville is an unincorporated community in northeastern Winneshiek County. It lies along local roads 13 miles northeast of the city of Decorah. Highlandville’s population is only around 35, but it boasts plenty of beds for lodging and a store that supplies many campers, fishermen and hunters in the area. Many fishermen say the North and South Bear Creeks offer the best trout
fishing in Iowa, and the streams do not freeze in winter. It is a hidden paradise in which to hike, bike, enjoy nature or get together with a church group.
