With 32 parks in Dane County, the County park system offers many opportunities for year-round outdoor recreation, including camping, disc golf, bike trails, equestrian trails, dog parks, hiking, boating, ice fishing, etc.

During winter months, trails cannot be opened unless there is at least a 6-inch trail base and steady below-freezing temperatures. Please contact the 24/7 Information Line at (608) 242-4576 as conditions warrant.

The Dane County park system oversees permit distribution for the public's use of the parks (such as camping, picnic, trail and dog permits). See website for further information about each park's contact information and services.
