Clermont, Iowa, located in the beautiful hills of northeast Iowa, is a small town located in the valley on the banks of the Turkey River. Its most popular attractions include the Clermont Museum, Heritage Farm Park, Lincoln Park, the Larabee Building, and the Montauk Historic Site.
The Turkey River flows through the town and is utilized for activities such as canoeing, kayaking, tubing, and fishing. Bike trails offer the chance for bikers, joggers, walkers, and bird watchers to fully enjoy the lush countryside. In winter, cross-country skiers and snow shoers get a chance to trek the trail, and this is also a prime place to enjoy the outdoors on a vast, expansive network of snowmobile trails.
Hunting draws outdoor sportsmen to the surrounding wooded areas as they take their shot at the perfect whitetail deer or wild turkey. Not only is nature good for taking your best hunting shot, but photographers come to capture the wildlife, too.
Founded in 1949, Clermont has become a historic town with eight listings on the National Register of Historic Places. You can find more information on our website: www.clermontia.org and on Facebook.
