“Beautiful piece of what makes Wisconsin great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

I can't believe it took me as long as it did to finally visit this park. It is absolutely wonderful and I just love taking my son to visit. I have many wonderful memories and photos of him playing in the lake and beach. Great family time!

“Great Park showcasing Western Wisconsin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

This is a great park tucked in the hills and bluffs of western Wisconsin. The trails are great, there are two lakes, a small yet interesting waterfall. The bathrooms are ok, a bit dated. The sites themselves are good. The group camp bathrooms seem brand spanking new though! We went during the annual candle light hike and was a great time. A huge park which seems to have everything for recreation! I highly recommend it!

“Huge State park!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

We went to check out the swimming beach. Nice beach the kids were happy. We didn't get a chance to walk the trails but there are many and have some neat things to see. Would be great for a weekend trip so you could see the whole park.

“Governor Dodge State Park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

What a Great Park!

We spent a long weekend in central Wisconsin just taking in some parks. We had a great time enjoying some the nature and scenery Wisconsin has to offer. Governor Dodge State Park will not disappoint. It has plenty to see and do just enjoying nature and being outside. We hiked some very scenic trails that included several different types of terrain. The park has several different trails, many that connect to one another and are well marked. Make sure you take in Stephen's Falls and the Lake-view trail. This large state park has plenty to offer and is a another must-stop of the Wisconsin's park system.
