COVID-19 Closure

After careful consideration with Iowa State Parks and public health officials, Honey Creek Resort's lodging, waterpark, activities building, golf course, and restaurant will be closing completely beginning Sunday, March 22, and re-opening Friday, May 22, in an effort to stem the spread of COVID-19.

We are focused on creating a great guest experience, and the health and safety of our employees and guests is our highest priority. We hope this temporary closure supports the national and global effort and look forward to seeing you at our property at a more opportune time this year. Thank you for your understanding, and please stay safe.
