Spook Cave In Iowa

February 15, 2023

Is there another spooky cave in Iowa?

Although not exactly the same as Spook Cave's underground tour, Ice Cave, near Decorah, is another spooky cave in Iowa. The reason Ice Cave is kind of spooky is that there is that the cave, itself, is entirely undeveloped and there are no tours. So, when you enter, you're going in alone. In the dark. By yourself. The cave is also pretty narrow and goes quite deep into the bluff. And if that isn't enough, the air in the cave is so naturally cold, it not only will give you chills but some years, there's ice in the cave even in the summer.
