Explore one of Iowa's oldest state parks.

Maquoketa Caves State Park is located in eastern Iowa, just off of Highway 61. This unique place offers outdoor adventure for everyone. There are 13 caves within the park, more caves than any other state park in Iowa. It also features 6-miles of trails that interconnect. Some caves are more suited to serious spelunkers, but many of them are big enough to walk through. Dancehall Cave is the biggest of all the caves and has an upper, middle, and lower entrance. Besides the caves, a lot of people like hiking to the natural bridge above Raccoon Creek. 

This is a great day-use space for picnickers, but you can also go camping here. All the campsites can be reserved online. A playground can be found next to the picnic shelters, offering a safe space for little kids to get their energy out. Please note that parking is limited, so arrive as early as possible on the weekend if at all possible. The parking lot is usually full from 11 am to 4 pm. Discover the natural beauty of Iowa at Maquoketa Caves State Park.
