Description

Ozark Wildlife Area is located in Jackson county 2 1/2 miles northeast of Canton. It is a 323-acre wildlife area situated along the north fork of the Maquoketa River. The area features bolted sport climbs on fine Iowa limestone. There are two crags in the area- Hoot Bluff and 187 Crag.

Getting There

From E-17 in Canton take 6th Ave north. Take a right on 166th St. Then left on 21st Ave. You will cross the river then take a right onto 187th St. This Level B maintenance road can be a real mess during rainy spells. Park along the 21st ave if need be and hike in. 187 runs along a field before passing the Ozark parking lot and entering the wildlife area. All the bolted routes are located along 187.
