Boone County comes alive with myriad flora in the spring!
As the weather warms, get outdoors
Boone County is first and foremost an outdoorsman's dream. With miles of hiking trails along our beautiful valley, flowers in bloom at the Iowa Arboretum, and the activity level heating up along with the Des Moines River at Seven Oaks Recreation.
By now you've got to be chomping at the bit to get those golf clubs out of storage. Boone County features three golf courses to choose from. Two 18-hole championship level courses exist in and around the city of Boone. Cedar Pointe Golf course provides multiple tee boxes to allow all levels of golfers a chance to score well. Just a few miles to the south Honey Creek Golf Course will test your mettle with astounding views along the valley ridge, and little more challenge in it's layout.
Just north of Ogden, Don Williams 9-hole course is perfect for a shorter round with fantastic views of the lake from almost every hole.
