You'll find a wide variety of "Keokuk area Geodes" on our site. Our Keokuk Geodes come from a radius of 30 miles around the Keokuk, Iowa area. David is always out hunting for new locations to bring you the rarest and most unusual Keokuk Geodes this area has to offer. Many of his locations take miles to get to.
These are just some pictures from some of the "Geode Hunts" we've been on.. We'll be adding many more soon.
This shrine embedded with some of our Keokuk Geodes was built by Mike Ette in Center Point, Iowa. This is a view of the back.

Here's a photo taken on May 13th, 2002 of one of the rivers we go geode hunting. With all the heavy rains, the river is about 12 foot or more higher than normal. In the center of this river overlooking the bridge was an island with bushes 5 feet tall on them. All under water....
