We were traveling on vacation and this park had little signage and I was truly disappointed. The upkeep on the park is very poor compared to other state parks I have stayed it. We had reservations and it was a good thing that we did...More

I was raised near the park and still go back every time I return for a visit. Special area is Dakota Point look out. You are in Iowa and can a vast expanse of South Dakota. Breath taking.

Stone State Park has scenic hiking trails, picnic shelters, and acres of woods. One of the trails leads to an overlook where you can view all three states - Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota. No admission fee required and parking is available.

It has trees and trails and a pond. There are even lodges you can rent. I like to go mountain biking. The ranger does a very bad job and should be fired!

I don't manage the park, I just enjoy it. Most people are there to camp or hike, and I haven't seen any dogs, but you should probably contact the website to find out if they are allowed.
