Wapsipinicon State Park, IA
DescriptionWelcome to Wapsipinicon State Park. The sandstone and limestone bluffs in the 400 acre park are covered with moss and columbine. The "newest" addition to the park has its own unique history laid out on an information kiosk in the west side parking area. The three-span bowstring arch bridge is on the National Registry of Historical Places and is the last one in Iowa.
Over the Fourth of July weekend the Buffalo Fork Settlers set up a pre-1840 rendezvous encampment in the park for the public to learn what life was like in this time period. The city of Anamosa also has many events scheduled throughout the summer and fall. While you are in town visit the State Penitentiary Museum showcasing the 137-year history of Iowa's largest prison or stop by the National Motorcycle Museum with more than 200 vintage and antique motorcycles on display.
