One of My Favorite State Parks
I've been going to Governor Doge State Park since I was a little kid and I've always loved it. The park is massive with tons of things to do. You won't be bored, believe me. Hike. Swim. Explore. Fish. All that and more. The scenery is beautiful, too. Go out and enjoy it!
