This is a wonderful drive on a sunny day with the top down on our convertible. We don't hike through there but it has able areas to hike, ride bikes and explore. Great place to go for a picnic!

Stone State Park has scenic hiking trails, picnic shelters, and acres of woods. One of the trails leads to an overlook where you can view all three states - Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota. No admission fee required and parking is available.

It has trees and trails and a pond. There are even lodges you can rent. I like to go mountain biking. The ranger does a very bad job and should be fired!

Wild life at its best. Trails to follow and the scenery is awesome! Make sure you go to the top of a hill so you can see three states, IA, Ne, and SD

Small, but beautifully kept state park. They have a couple overlooks with great views of the land. Worth a visit if you're looking for something to do!

Two questions -- ONE: we are in a 40' motorhome with 4 slides. Will we fit in the 50 amp sites? TWO: how far are the cabins from the electric camping sites?

I don't manage the park, I just enjoy it. Most people are there to camp or hike, and I haven't seen any dogs, but you should probably contact the website to find out if they are allowed.
