Governor Dodge State Park is located just north of Dodgeville in the unique Driftless Area of southwestern Wisconsin. The Friends of Governor Dodge State Park is a 501 (c) 3 organization whose mission is to support recreation, education and environmental stewardship at the park. As the equestrian committee of the Friends, we serve as a great resource for both horse enthusiasts and the park.
Since forming in 2015, our committee has completed many trail enhancements including new trail location signage, a rest stop/picnic area on the long Driftless Trail, and a new vault toilet "comfort stop" at the trailhead adjoining the future campground. We have presented annual Share the Trails educational programs and have hosted community events.
Our major goal is to see the park’s master plan for a new equestrian campground become a reality. We have DNR approved plans in hand and have raised $205,000 since our campaign began in mid-2018. We encourage everyone to get involved. Together we can make a difference now and well into the future.
