Multi-use trails take you down to Dutch Creek but the Ice Cave and Horse Thief Cave and out to the recreation area. The multi-use trails are open to hiking, cross country skiing and snowmobiling. A hiking trail and nature trail are located in the northern part of the park.

Bicycling:

The Northeast State Park Bike Route is a 130 mile route which connects Wapsipinicon State Park, Pikes Peak State Park and Backbone State Park utilizing county highways.

Carry your own gear and "rough it" in the campgrounds or take comfort in a local "bed and breakfast" or motel along the route, some of which offer a shuttle service for gear or luggage at a nominal fee. Reservations for this service must be made in advance. Detailed route brochures are available.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
July 9 great for sleding
September 14 Four! by Rich
This park boasts a beautiful, wooded, and uncrowded campground with adequate bathroom facilities including shower. It has wonderful caves to explore and is very near the great little town of Anamosa, IA. The only drawback is that the campground is situated next to a public golf course. You may not be an early riser but rest-assured, the golfers and grounds staff are.
