In the heart of southern Iowa lies the small town of Leon, just minutes from Interstate 35 and at the intersection of Highways 2 and 69. With a population just under 2,000, this community offers a great place to live, work, play, and stay, and the Leon Chamber of Commerce is excited to welcome you for RAGBRAI XLIV!

Leon, the county seat of Decatur County, sits among beautiful wooded rolling hills, filled with an abundance of lakes, rivers, and streams. The county houses several county and state parks that make a perfect getaway for nature enthusiasts. There are several beautiful game preserves and well stocked lakes that are sure to please those who like to hunt and fish.

During your overnight stay in our town, take some time to relax and unwind, and find a campground or park you’ll want to come back to. On your return visit, bring a picnic lunch and go hiking, or make camp under the stars at one of our three parks. There are several locations to choose from with both primitive and modern camping, sandy beaches, and nature trails.

Leon offers a dedicated work force, profitable business climate and a quality life style. There is a cherished feeling of security here, re-enforced by honest rural values.

Decatur County welcomes you to visit and experience our beautiful historic rolling hills, safe clean environment, outstanding community members, and a sense of coming home.

Decatur County offers a great place to live, work, play, and stay, so come visit us . . . new and exciting opportunities await you here in the heart of southern Iowa.

Sincerely,
Leon Chamber of Commerce
