Rock Rapids is "Building Today for Tomorrow" with excellent educational opportunities, a diverse business structure, family-oriented community facilities, and quality health care.


Rock Rapids is located in extreme northwest Iowa, at the junction of Iowa Highway 9 and US Highway 75 32 miles southeast of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and only 15 miles south of Interstate 90. Our 2,600 residents enjoy the benefits of small town living with easy access to the larger communities of Sioux Falls, the Twin Cities, and Omaha. We invite you to take a look around our web site, but we hope we get the chance to meet you in person!

Rock Rapids is proud to host many events and promotions. The Farm and Home Show each March gets everyone out of the house for some free food and a chance to see what's new with the merchants. Our Farmers Market runs from June to October & features fresh local produce & bakes goods. Our city celebration, Heritage Days is held the 3rd weekend of every June. The Lyon County Fair is held in July & is the "best four days of summer."  We round out the year with some great Christmas promotions. Our retailers host crazy days & many open houses through out the year. 

There are many recreational opportunities for all ages in the area. Fishing, swimming, soccer, dirt track racing, skate park, little league, camping, museum, snowmobiling, ice skating and more are all available in Rock Rapids.
