This is a very interesting state park in Maquoketa, Iowa. We enjoyed the caves and the associated hikes, very interesting geology, surprisingly out among some corn fields in Iowa. The largest cave goes underneath the entrance drive road, which is interesting. The campground was pretty nice, but only offers 30A electric. You have to use your water tank and pump for fresh water, which tends to limit stays to a matter of days. We really enjoyed our visit, and as with all Iowa State Parks the price is very reasonable at $16. Just a couple miles out the rear exit is an absolutely fantastic all you can eat Catfish Restaurant and Fish Farm from which the catfish come. There are many trees over the campground, so getting satellite tv reception is not guaranteed. We camped at Maquoketa Cave State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Try the all you can eat catfish dinner a couple miles from the rear entrance at Bluff Lake Catfish Farm, it is excellent eating and a really cool place to visit.

Absolutely great time with my family. Our site was perfect. I like that you can reserve spots. We really had a great time in the caves. Lot spacing is spacious and range from mostly shady to covered/forested. Site surface is gravel and features a fire ring and picnic table. We camped at Maquoketa Cave State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Make sure you go to Bluff lake for supper Saturday or Sunday. Also drive-in movies are close to caves for a movie night.

Nice park and a great value. Sites are close together and not large, but most seemed very level. I believe ReserveAmerica lists all the site lengths as 40' and if so, that would be the entire length of the site. Our 37' DP took up almost all of the site front to back. I would not want to take anything larger in and would be reluctant to use a 5th wheel or very large travel trailer. Campground is small and fills up completely on summer weekends. Very peaceful during the week. We camped at Maquoketa Cave State Park in a Motorhome.

If you want to try to get one of the four non-reservable sites on a summer weekend, show up by mid-day on Thursday. By Thursday night, all will likely be full.

Nice and secluded and quiet. Very wooded, mature tall trees, deer roaming the park. Good sites with hard gravel, fairly level, easy in and out. Would definitely return. Never saw a park ranger nor host. We camped at Maquoketa Cave State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was a very nice state park campground. All of the sites were wooded. They had adequate spacing between each site and all were located within walking distance of the trails. Maquoketa Caves State Park has beautiful walking trails with natural rock formations and several caves. Our kids enjoyed the campground and its family friendly atmosphere. The sites were easy to back into and came equipped with a picnic table and fire ring. We will definitely return to this campground. We camped at Maquoketa Cave State Park in a Motorhome.
