I made a quick stop at Governor Dodge State Park – Stephens Fall Trail in Dodgeville, Wisconsin. This Wisconsin State Park is massive in size. But the Stephens Fall Trail is very short in length. There are stone steps leading down into it.
This park is over 5,300 acres in size, and we have heard it’s great for camping and horseback riding as well. I will definitely be back for camping with the family this summer. Anywhere in the Driftless region of Wisconsin is our favorite. So expect to see steep hills, bluffs, and deep valleys when you are visiting.
I took my hike on a quiet Wednesday afternoon. It was a great stop to check out the rock formations and all of the greenery during these summer months. While you are down visiting the falls, pick up the “Lost Canyon Trail”. This is a three-mile loop through the woods along the small stream fed by the waterfall. It won’t disappoint.
The bst time to check out this trail would be Early Spring when the snow begins to melt and the falls are flowing strong. Check out more of the trails at Governor Dodge State Park here.
We would love to come back and take the kiddos fishing and swimming as well here at Governor Dodge State Park. The perfect time to explore in the summer while they are off of school for a bit.
On your way out of town, make sure to stop at Hook’s Cheese. You can’t go wrong with some award-winning deliciousness! You’ll be so glad you did.
