MAQUOKETA - The caves at Maquoketa Caves State Park will remain closed through April 30, in accordance with Governor Reynolds’ social distancing efforts. The trail system for the park’s most popular caves involves narrow boardwalks and handrails, making it difficult for visitors to maintain physical distances of at least six feet. Visitors can access the rest of the park while the caves are closed. 

When planning a trip to an Iowa state park, be sure to check the DNR’s State Park Alerts and Closures page at for information on any seasonal, construction or weather-related closures that may impact your visit, along with COVID-19 related operational changes at Iowa state parks.
