 City Council Agenda | Meeting Minutes

There is no place like home. And there is no place like Fayette. A place where a strong work ethic, friendly neighbors, nature's beauty and concern for family are the rule - not the exception. With a population of about 1,427, Fayette is home to Klock's Island Camping Park, Rainbow Land Park, Cardinal Sports Complex, Multi-Use Trails, Big Rock Golf Course and the Volga River State Recreation Area. While the Volga River winds its way through town providing unlimited recreational opportunities, the 5,750 acre Volga River State Recreation Area, home of Frog Hollow Lake, offers fishing, canoeing, hiking, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, boating, camping, hunting and much more. Seasons change with the splash and splendor of color. Don't forget the access to numerous cultural activities and sporting events at Upper Iowa University. Fayette is the best of what nature and people have to offer.
