Kuennen's Quarry is a day use park.


One mile south of Northwood, Ia on Hwy 65 and then 0.5 miles east on 450th St.


This park is an old limestone quarry that provided rock to build I 90.  There is a three acre and eight acre quarries that are stocked with fish.  The south (larger) quarry is stocked with trout in the winter time.

We have two shelter houses in the park.   One is a fully enclosed log cabin with heat and air conditioning that rents for $70 per day.  There is a cleaning and damage deposit of $150 that needs to be paid when the key is picked up and the rental agreement is signed.   The other is an open log shelter with electrical service and rents for $35 a day.  There is a playground located close to the enclosed shelter.  There are 5 picnic shelters located in the area between the quarries.

There is a handicapped fishing pier and a concrete boat ramp on the south quarry.
