Come “Explore the Bounty of Fayette County!” Fayette County offers something for everyone with four seasons of outdoor recreation at any of our beautiful parks, including Volga River Recreation Area. Springtime offers outdoor enthusiasts an opportunity to enjoy nature while searching for wildflowers, hunting for mushrooms, or fishing in the sparkling trout streams, the meandering Turkey and Volga Rivers or beautiful Volga Lake.
Spend a summer day visiting one of our many golf courses, camping, picnicking, swimming, kayaking, horseback riding or hiking. Find a community event nearly every weekend – from Hawkeye Fun Days to Fayette’s Watermelon Days – music, parades, fireworks and family fun abound.
Autumn offers beautiful fall colors. Enjoy a drive along the River Bluffs Scenic Byway and take in fabulous views, majestic limestone bluffs and small town charm. In winter, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, hunting, ice fishing and skating top the list. Year round activities include bird watching, performing arts, movies and shopping. Make a day of it – quilters and junking sisters will find studios, retreats, antiques and repurposed treasures in unique shops and boutiques throughout the county.
