AAA Editor Notes
Lacey-Keosauqua State Park is 2 mi. s.w. off SR 1. Adjoining the Des Moines River, the 1,653-acre state park is one of Iowa's largest. Pioneers used Ely's Ford, flanked by massive sandstone outcroppings, before there were bridges. The Mormons crossed the river in the 1840s during their trek westward.

The area also is a wildlife sanctuary with interesting flora, a 22-acre lake, ravines and cliffs. An interpretive panel display explains the history of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). Nearby is the site of a prehistoric Native American village.

Pet friendly (call for restrictions/fees.). Recreational activities are permitted. Camping is permitted. Picnicking is permitted.
