West Union, IA 52175


Echo Valley is a one hundred-acre natural area, which was built by the Civilian Conservation corps in the 1930’s. The park contains many hand-built historical structures such as a dam, keystone archway, lime kiln, and shelter house. The Dick Jensen Trail and other hiking trails lead through this historical park. The area is located two miles east of West Union on Echo Valley Road, or go north of West Union on State Highway No. 56, or Filmore Road, turn onto Imperial Road, and then left onto Echo Valley Road. Drive until you come to the park entrance. The park also provides visitors with picnicking areas, primitive camping, bird watching, and trout fishing in two separate streams.

Glovers Creek Fishing and Wildlife Area is a 187 acre parcel of land located right next to Echo Valley State Park (accessible though the Glover’s Creek side of Echo Valley). The Glovers Creek Fishing and Wildlife Area is open for public fishing and hunting, except when the road is impassable due to weather conditions.
