My favorite time to visit is in Mid-May when the leaves are G R E E N and the bugs are minimal. Plus the crowds are typically smaller at this extremely busy park.

My favorite trail at Governor Dodge is the Lost Canyon Trail that starts with the decent to the gorgeous Stephen's Falls. My favorite time of year to go is around Mid-May when the leaves are G R E E N and the bugs are minimal.

We grew up going here every summer. Sites are more private than they used to be, although weekends in the summer are packed! Must book a year out to ensure an electric site. Stevens Falls is a beautiful hike, even with a 2&4 year old in tow! Multiple beaches, some very full of goose poop, but so many great trails to hike!

The Lost Canyon Trail is a must see. Stephens' Falls and the spring houses are great photo opportunities. The backpacking sites available in the park are secluded and very private, just remember to bring lots of insect repellent/mosquito nets.

Great campsites in a huge park! Many trails, lakes, forest and savannas to occupy you. Many electric hookups. Wisconsin requires a State Permit in addition to daily fees.
