The Hidden Park That Will Make You Feel Like You’ve Discovered Iowa’s Best Kept Secret

Pretty much every Iowan has heard of Pikes Peak State Park, the Maquoketa Caves and the lovely hiking trails at Ledges State Park. But there are a lot of lesser known parks that are just as stunning. Wapsipinicon State Park is one of those parks. While it isn’t technically “hidden,” it is a park that many in Iowa may not have heard of or at least haven’t visited…yet.
