1. Lake Kegonsa State Park

One of the best-kept secrets in Madison, Lake Kegonsa State Park offers endless outdoor adventures. In the summer, grab your wakeboard out of storage, throw the boat on the trailer, and get ready for an epic day shredding on the waters. If you need a day to refresh, drop your line in anywhere around the lake and test your luck for largemouth bass and Northern pike. If you happen to be visiting in the winter, grab your snowshoes or cross-country skis and tour along fresh powder on any of the many hiking trails.
