This Hidden Natural Spring In Iowa Has Some Of The Bluest Water In The State

Iowa skies and Iowa lakes and rivers are two of the many things we love about this state. And when the two come together – when a water surface reflects the deep blue sky – it creates an especially beautiful scene. But there are a few spots around Iowa that boast water so clear blue that it doesn’t need as much extra help from the sky.

Camping is available within the wider park and there are many trails to explore nearby. One trail is the backbone itself: a swath of Dolomite rock 10 feet wide with a 100ft drop off on either side! This is Iowa’s oldest state park and the handiwork of the Conservation Corps can be seen in many of the buildings more than 100 years later.
