This is a favorite spot for my entire family. There's a lot of little picnic areas spread out throughout the entire park. We've spotted lots of deer, Turkey, and even some beautiful birds. This is great for picnics, parties, hiking, exploring, and to just sit...More

I was raised near the park and still go back every time I return for a visit. Special area is Dakota Point look out. You are in Iowa and can a vast expanse of South Dakota. Breath taking.

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 been a part of Northwest Iowa for decades. It's situated in the Loess Hills along Big Sioux River and covers a little over 1,000 acres of land. Being in the Loess Hills gives this park a very unique look. It's a...More

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!

On a mid-day Saturday visit, I found this park under-utilized. It was a gorgeous day and should have brought out the picnic crowd and hikers, but the park was nearly empty. Very quiet, serene and beautiful. Massive oak and walnut trees which I estimate were...More

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.
