For those new to our site WELCOME! Havelock, Iowa is a clean, honest and easy place to live. Life is good in Northwest Iowa so we put up with a few twisters and cold weather once in awhile. The good thing about Iowa weather.. if you don't like it just wait half a day and it will be different! We work hard and we play hard out here in Northwest. We have some great recreational opportunities that are right close to home and easy and quick to get to.
