According to the Love Exploring Website, Maquoketa Caves State Park, specifically, Dancehall Cave, is the most beautiful natural wonder in the Hawkeye State.

Dancehall is just one of many caves to marvel at in this hidden gem in Eastern Iowa. Not only does it offer a cement path to allow you to walk within the caves, but it also offers on-site camping, allowing you to explore everything the park has to offer at your own pace.

Here's what Love Exploring Website has to say about Maquoketa Caves State Park:

Maquoketa Caves State Park is one of Iowa's most fascinating natural attractions. Dancehall Cave is the park's largest and most famous, once thought to have been a space for gatherings. A short, but wonderful hike that really immerses visitors into this fascinating landscape, Maquoketa Caves Loop is a manageable 1.6-mile (2.7km) walk that offers plenty of adventure.
