Tall-Grass Prairie and River Stay
Wake up to morning fog over the tall grass prairie.
Some of our Big Blue Stem grows to 9 feet by August. See what it felt like to walk through native grasses and not see someone just a few feet away!
The prairie is full of flowers once summer is in full swing! A wildlife photographer's paradise.

Iowa State Park camping provides for a beautiful experience in the heart land and offers many activities including rock climbing, biking, fishing, and hiking. Backbone State Park was the first dedicated state park in Iowa. Backbone is named for the steep and narrow ridge of bedrock cut by a loop of the Maquoketa River and forming the highest point in northeast Iowa known as the Devil's Backbone. In addition to camping on private land, Walnut Woods State Park is one of the only places with designated sites for camping in De Moines Iowa and boasts the largest surviving natural stand of black walnut trees in North America. Head 210 miles northwest of De Moines, and you’ll hit the Iowa Great Lakes—a string of glacial lakes covering about 15,000 acres. Maquoketa Caves is worth exploring: its caves, limestone formations and rugged bluffs provide visitors a chance to go back into geological time thousands of years.
