The abundant wildlife of Northeastern Iowa such as the whitetail deer, bald eagles, turkey and pheasants are what makes Deer Run Resort different than the other RV Parks.

Deer Run Resort sits on the edge of Elkader which is nestled in a woodland valley along the winding Turkey River where fishing is plentiful and canoeing & tubing is the favorite past time. There are many things to do at and around Deer Run Resort with the local swimming pool, new playground equipment, and several biking & hiking nature trails within walking distance. Take a romantic stroll down the Riverwalk along side of the Turkey River and see what the local community has to offer including antique stores, a movie theater, a nine golf course, eating establishments and much, much, more.
