Located just off Highway 9, Ocheyedan offers many visitor activities to those passing through. Visit the Ocheyedan Mound, located on the south side of town. The mound sits at 1,655 feet above sea level, just 15 feet less than Hawkeye Point, Iowa's Highest Point. The Ocheyedan Mound was formed by the Wisconsin Glacier approximately 13,000 years ago.
Also in Ocheyedan is the Tracy House Museum, which has items donated by the community which date before 1902. Some of the items include dishes, a table and a Bible from the Congregational Church. In 1976 the Osceola County Historical Society became interested in preserving the house. In addition to the house, there is a steel building which contains historical agricultural tools, old office machines, county records, books, photographs and trophies.
The Ocheyedan Pits Recreation Area is located two miles south of Ocheyedan, and the 33-acre area features a picnic shelter, restrooms, water, camping, fishing, swimming and nature trails. The park has electricity, drinking water, pit toilets, picnicking, hiking, fishing and swimming opportunities.
Just 5 miles west of Ocheyedan along Highway 9 is the Willow Creek Wildlife Management Area, home to the Osceola County Conservation office. Here is a lodge, nature center and classroom. The area features a 3.5 acre lake, native and restored prairie and opportunities for fishing, hunting, hiking, birding, nature study and photography.
