  • Wonderful place, not too far from Dubuque, but be prepared. We really enjoyed this park with our group that included an 8 year old and a black lab. Maps were available, but aren’t always, so bring...

  • Never expected to find such a fantastic place in Iowa but so very glad to stumble upon it. So there are about 15 caves that you can explore, and we are NOT talking about some dinky / shallow / hole...

  • We used to come here about 20 years ago. Coming back today with kids was so much fun! I am NOT an exercise enthusiast and would describe myself as out of shape, but can push through. The trails are interesting and a good combo of stairs and paths. The caves are fun, but be prepared with flashlights and good shoes. The water is cold and the mud is plentiful. It's amazing and I'm sure we'll be back. Beautiful scenery.
  • What a wonderful place to have in Iowa!!! We loved it as it is absolutely beautiful! Do ensure you have on safe walking shoes - as there are many stairs & some steep inclines. We enjoyed it so much - but do want to ensure others are aware that is does require a bit of physical ability to get around the caving system (thinking of small children or the elderly) as it could be a bit difficult for them.
