  • This place is a gem!! (or is it a fossil?). No more than 4 steps outside my car I found a 400 million year old fossil- that I get to keep. If that doesn’t have you hooked on visiting this place then maybe the beautiful scenery or well maintained walking trails will. Plenty of places to sit and eat a picnic or make set up your own chairs and relax.
  • This was one of the coolest places we have been in Iowa since we moved here in 2017. A must for anyone who can make it out there.
