Though our 70-acre property has plenty of hiking and walking trails on it, guests often find they want to venture a little further afield.  One of our favorite places to explore in the area is Governor Dodge State Park, which has the distinction of being one of the largest Wisconsin State Parks. In total, this park encompasses more than 5,000 acres of land, and it offers a glimpse into the unique topography of Wisconsin’s Driftless Area. Within the park, you’ll find the steep hillside bluffs and deep valleys that are characteristic of the Driftless Area, along with two lakes and a waterfall.
