Some EXCITING NEWS! The Maquoketa Caves are back open! The caves at our local landmark state park (Maquoketa Caves) have been closed for more than a year due to the pandemic, and also because of winter bat hibernation.
The caves are a popular destination. While the terrain around them is a pretty darn awesome hike, being able to enter the caves takes things to a whole ‘nother level. My favorite part is being able to walk through Dancehall Cave from one side of the park to the other. I love to start on the south side and walk through to the north side. There is a natural bridge on the north side that provides some amazing scenery and photo ops as you come out of Dancehall.

The Caves reopened on April 15, 2021. Wink wink – be watching for a local Maquoketa camping event. I’m working out the details, and planning a hike to this incredible local destination!
