This cache is placed near the parking area and may be a difficult find for some, however persistance always pay's off. Permission to place this cache has been granted by John Klien, Jones County Conservation. Come out and find many caches in this beautiful area.
This cache will bring you to the South East section of White Water Canyon. Bridging the lines between Dubuque, Jackson and Jones counties, Whitewater Canyon Wildlife Area is one of the jewels in the Dubuque County & Jones County Conservation Board system. This 419 acre area is open for public hunting during state designated hunting seasons so please wear your orange when necessary. It is also a favorite with hikers, wildlife-watchers, and anglers dipping a line in Whitewater Creek. During periods of sufficient water, it is also floated by canoers and kayakers. Winter provides areas to snowshoe and cross-country ski. One of only three true canyons in the State of Iowa, the walls of Whitewater provide a lesson in the state's geology taking one back 450 million years to a time when what is now Iowa was under the sea. Rare plants and animals are also sheltered in the various natural communities found on the property, so please take only pictures and leave only footprints. Operating hours are 6:30 am until 10:30 pm year-round, but be careful in the winter because the entrance road can drift shut. Operating hours are 6:30 am until 10:30 pm year-round.
