Welcome Home

Welcome to the City of Ute! We are located in the west central part of Iowa in Monona County along the Soldier River. We are located 55 miles South of Sioux City 70 miles North of Omaha, NE. With the highways 183 and 141 meeting in Ute, it’s easy to reach the bigger cities, while still enjoying all that small-town life has to offer.  We have a population of 374 (2010 census).

Ute is a small town in Western Iowa that is full of life! We are a wonderful place to settle in. Check out the rest of the website and see for yourself what Ute has to offer!


The community of Ute is active and connected. We have multiple free community events throughout the year where we can all relax and have fun together.


Our community supports its businesses and appreciates what it takes to run a successful business.


Ute is a safe and great place to raise your family. In addition to events and great schools, our City Park was designed to be a place to gather and play.
