    This is a hidden gem for the community of Dubuque,IA. The interpretive Center has a lot to offer for adults and children. DNR park manager Andy Roach, is one of Iowa's own. He lags behind no other in terms of knowledge, history and willingness to go the extra mile to make visitors feel welcome. Along with numerous volunteers from the community this is a place that puts their best foot forward for all guests to enjoy some of Northeast Iowa's precious Prairie lands and beautiful Timber. One is made to feel like they're stepping back in time visiting the Pine Chapel.

    Very disappointed. Arrived only to find a locked interpretive center along with several other carloads of people. Called only to be told they are now closed on Wed. Might want to make that more clear and visible on your website.

    Beautiful place to spend time with the family. Miles of great trails, great photography opportunities, and very nice place for the kids to learn about nature. Please bring home any trash you come in with. The number of water bottles, cans, litter I pick up here each year is sickening. Stay home if your going to destroy the place for others.
