Backbone State Park is Iowa's oldest, dedicated in 1919. It was Iowa's first state park and remains one of the most geographically unique.
Backbone is named for the steep and narrow ridge of bedrock cut by a loop of the Maquoketa River and forming the highest point in northeast Iowa - the Devil's Backbone.
Biking, boating, camping, climbing, fishing, hiking, and picnicking...it's all here!
