We love this park. In summer, we visit for hiking and biking on trails. We have recently started kayaking more too. The two lakes here are perfect for kayaking with limitations for boat traffic that keep the water calm for paddlers. Love the structure of...More

Walked around Gov. Dodge state park today and really enjoyed Cox Hollow Lake and Stephens Falls. Many more places to see there as well. Places to picnic, canoe, kayak etc.

Typical state park for camping. Friendly employees. Rates vary for out of state and in state campers...Also it seems weekdays and weekends differ. Nice settings for sites. Mosquitoes decided to populate while we were here!

This is a beautiful park with hiking trails, camping, and swimming. The staff is courteous and helpful. You can buy a day pass and go hiking, etc or buy a year pass and go whenever you like.

I haven't rented one in years, but I recall it being rather expensive. Something like a 2 hour minimum and approximately $20/hour.
