Few People Know This Amazing Natural Wonder Is Hiding In The Iowa Forest

Iowa is full of beautiful natural wonders, and many of them are famous throughout the state. After all, I bet you’ve seen the top of Pikes Peak, strolled Backbone State Park, and sailed Lake Okoboji at some point in your life. Part of the fun that comes from living in such a big state, though, is discovering hidden gems and secrets that only locals know. The beautiful, cascading falls of Dunnings Spring Park is one wonder that’s hiding right in an Iowa forest.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.

Take the time to explore Decorah’s famous ice cave, too, which is right next to Dunnings Spring Park. This geologic wonder is icy and cold for most of the year! That makes it the perfect place to cool off after hiking Dunnings Spring Park in the summer.
