Governor Dodge is My Childhood

Love coming here on hot days in the summer months. Renting a canoe with my sisters and paddling over to the rope swing is such a fond memory of mine!

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!

Pretty Place

There were a few scenic sights on the hikes. It was fun and easy.
