Maquoketa Caves State Park

The Maquoketa Caves State Park, with a varied assortment of 14 caves, is a great place for novice spelunkers to satisfy their curiosity. The Iowa park land was purchased in 1921 and the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) provided the first main park infrastructure in 1930. The corps handiwork is still viable today, with a lodge, the Dancehall Cave walkway and park's picnic area.
