MAQUOKETA, Iowa (KWWL) -- The Maquoketa Caves State Park reopened its caves to the public on Thursday after being closed for over a year.

While the park has been open, the popular Maquoketa Caves have been closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and winter bat hibernation.

Parking is still limited, with designates spots only. Once the spots are full you must wait for an open parking spot to access the park.

New in 2021, same-day reservations will be accepted from April 1 - October 31 and until 9 pm on the day of arrival. Reservations at the Park are required.

You can now start planning your trip!
