MAQUOKETA CAVES STATE PARK
The Maquoketa Caves are some of the most fun you will ever have. There is much more to do than just go caving, you can go hiking, or stay the night and camp also the Park Rangers are friendly and helpful. The best is that it is for all ages when I was there I saw people from six years old to sixty years old. If you get a couple friends and go up there for the day it is a great trip. Some of the most fun I've ever had, the caves go on forever there is always a way to go further. Make sure you wear clothes that are old and you don't care about. There is just around twenty marked caves that you can go exploring in but hundreds of unmarked caves to adventure in. I went up there with a couple friends and we stayed the whole day exploring the caves. The cave that was the most fun was probably The Wye Cave, it goes almost straight down for a couple hundred feet until you reach a small room and to hangout for a bit. The thing you have to be cautious of is that there is a lack of oxygen in the cave so you have to take short breaths. Some of these caves go on for hundreds of feet just go on and on. The Maquoketa Caves is one of the coolest places you will ever go.
