Last Camp of the Season

Stephans Falls and Lost Canyon Trail
Our finally days for the camping season included a trip to southwestern Wisconsin for Governor Dodge State Park. Located in the driftless region of the state, the 5000 acres offered two beautiful lakes for paddling and fishing plus 40 miles of trails for hikers, bikers and horse back riders.

Even though it's already October the park was busy. The campground caters to family groups with many shared sites. The grounds were noisy with kids making it difficult to enjoy our natural surroundings. It became more restful on Sunday night when the retirees started arriving.

Bobs' Bitchin BBQ

We did a little hiking and feed the fish (aka fishing).

We ventured into Dodgeville to shared a sampler platter at Bobs Bitch' BBQ restaurant. They really got creative on the sauces with rootbeer, raspberry and chipotle creations.

Besides camping we chose this area to attend a class in Mineral Point. You'll never guess what for!


  1. How can it already be the end of camping season? Can't wait to hear what class you two took.

  2. Governor Dodge is a lovely place to stay, what a good way to end the season. I'm very curious as to what class you took.
