About Governor Dogde State Park:

Currently, there is no "established" climbing, but with the help of local climbers and Wisconsin Outdoor Access, climbing at Governor Dodge will be "official" sometime in 2003. To insure that the area isn't destroyed, and to kindly abide by the DNR's (Department of Natural Resources) wishes, trails are being established.
Nearest town or city: Dodgeville
Directions: Take US Highway 18 to Dodgeville, which is about 48 miles west of Madison, Wisconsin. Then go north on State Highway 23. The park entrance is on your right about 3 miles north of Highway 18. You also can take the scenic Highway 23 south from Spring Green or north from Mineral Point to reach the park. By foot or bicycle, you can get to Governor Dodge by way of the Military Ridge State Trail. There's a surfaced access trail from the Military Ridge to the park just east of County Highway Z.
