The One State Park In Iowa That Stands Out From The Rest

There’s no shortage of stunning state parks in Iowa – from the Loess Hills to the mighty Mississippi, every region of the state seems to be hiding a perfect park. One not-so-hidden park is perhaps the most incredible of them all, though. Just one hike through Pikes Peak State Park will show you exactly why this is one of the most photographed parks in the entire Midwest.

Of course, not every Iowan likes to get up close with mother nature! If you’d rather your wilderness be a little less, well, wild, then perhaps a road trip through Iowa’s most charming small towns.
