Calling all cavers and explorers! Come on down to one of Iowa’s most unique natural wonders, Maquoketa Caves State Park. First set yourself up in the shady pine tree covered campground in one of the standard or RV (electric hookup) sites. Then get down to business by heading into the underground. There are multiple caves of different sizes to explore. Once you need some daylight hit the trails or just chillax at your campsite and thank Mother Nature for all her hard work in making the outdoors just so darn awesome.

The caves alone are worth a visit, and camping was fantastic. I went with a group of five of my best friends. Although it rained, the hiking was spectacular—we found a few really great hidden water spots. This was also the first time I ever had a pizza sandwich cooked over the fire. It changed my life. Haha! <3
