Maquoketa Caves State PArk Things to know: *There are a lot of stairs, the boardwalks are in good condition but are wet due to the nature of the site. *Your going to get dirty. Bring old clothes and have fun. *There's a 5 minute class everyone has to take about the bat fungus. Rangers are at the trail entrance ready to meet you for the class. A couple of the caves had electricity, otherwise bring your flashlight. The trails between the caves were also beautiful.
