Kendallville, Iowa, is a best-kept secret that should be explored. The town, located between Cresco, Iowa, and Harmony, Minn., is host to a peaceful 12-acre campground that offers electric and primitive camping with facilities. Canoe, kayak, and tube rental is conveniently found right in town, as is a restaurant and bar that will satisfy your appetite with its delicious food, friendly service, and casual atmosphere! Snowmobilers can take advantage of the area trails and stop in for a bite to eat and a warmup.

In warmer weather, spend time fishing, canoeing or taking in the sounds of nature. The Upper Iowa River can be canoed for about 110 miles, with natural segments based on campgrounds and scenery. One can take day trips on the Upper Iowa from Lime Springs to Kendallville (about 22 miles) or Kendallville to Bluffton (about 15 miles) while enjoying beautiful scenery the area has to offer.
