Maquoketa Caves State Park

Day trip to Maquoketa Caves. The kids loved exploring all the side caves and nooks. Located about 1.5 hrs northeast of Vinton. Spent a little over an hour hiking and spelunking. June didn’t fuss the entire time in the back carrier. Excellent fun!!

    • Merritt will love to be reminded of that! We had to take a quick permit class from a ranger before we could hike the caves and get a wristband. The bats are at risk of contracting a new disease that humans can carry in on their clothes, gear, etc. But as long as we hadn’t hiked recently in another cave system in another state we were fine. Any caves by you we could visit? The kids were seriously over the moon!
