The Underrated Natural Wonder Every Iowan Should See At Least Once
Iowa is full of incredible natural wonders, but one state park is so incredible that you’ve really got to see it for yourself. While it’s been off-limits recently, it’s scheduled for a re-opening soon, and you’ll want to plan a trip down here in just a few weeks!
All summer long, the boardwalks at Maquoketa State Park have sat empty, as road construction and renovation have kept the park closed.
Luckily, this stunning natural wonder hiding right in Iowa is re-opening in just a few weeks! The park's scheduled to open on August 24.
That means Iowans will have all fall to explore some of the coolest caves in the country.
Middle and Upper Dancehall Caves are some of the most popular for hikers to check out.
If you're not claustrophobic, you can see what it's like to hang out in a real, natural cave!
There are other wonders throughout the park, like Iowa's largest natural bridge.
As you climb down into the caves, you'll feel like you're exploring a whole new world.
The bright colors, serenity, and incredible landscape make this park feel like Brigadoon.
