TUESDAY DAILY


































MAQUOKETA CAVES STATE PARK WILL BE VERY BUSY VERY SOON, WITH OVER 100,000
PEOPLE COMING THIS SUMMER TO RV OR TENT CAMP, PICNIC, WALK, AND MOST WILL GO THROUGH THE CAVES.    NEW IS THE ABOVE SHELTER AT THE ENTRANCE TO THE CAMPING AREA.    THERE ARE AROUND 30 SPOTS FOR  RV'S AND TENTS.    THERE IS A CAMP HOST, BUT HERE IS WHERE VISITORS CAN PAY THE FEE AND GET INSTRUCTIONS.
THE REST ROOMS FOR RV VISITORS AND CAMPERS.
THE NATURE CENTER IS OPEN A LOT BUT NOT ALL THE  TIME.   IT IS WORTH A VISIT AND NO CHARGE OF COURSE.    HAS A NEW REST ROOM BUILDING, AND
IS STAFFED BY VOLUNTEERS.
AS YOU LEAVE CAVES, THIS SIGN INVITES YOU TO
VISIT MAQUOKETA.
