i know most of the states forest land is in the north, but what’s worth visiting in the south?
Everyone loves devils lake, but nearby mirror lake state park is underrated, especially if you have a canoe/kayak. An old fashioned at nearby Ishnala supper club is worthwhile.
Theres’s also Governor Dodge State Park and many corps of engineers rec areas along the Mississippi.
There is also Yellowstone Lake State Park and Wyalusing State Park. Both have great hikes and Yellowstone Lake is good for swimming and leisure kayaking.
