DescriptionWelcome to Waubonsie State Park, which provides one of the rarest and greatest vistas of Iowa's unique Loess Hills. The park is also a site on the Lewis and Clark Historical Trail, a national historical trail.
With the recent addition of the Wa-Shawtee Unit there are nearly 2,000 acres of recreational opportunity and quiet beauty to explore and enjoy. Whether you've come in for a quiet break, a relaxing drive, a fun night around the campfire or a cozy stay in a secluded cabin, we hope you have a satisfying experience and join us again soon.
Eight miles of multi-use trails wind through the rugged hills in the northern regions of the park, offering both challenging hikes and relaxing rides to equestrians, mountain bikers and snowmobilers.
