Prairie Moraine Park is often called the best dog park in Dane County, Wisconsin. There are many paths available, so you can go a different route each trip and there is plenty of space to run. Disposal bags, benches, and picnic tables available for humans. Dogs will love the grassy meadows with big hills, prairie grass, and beautiful wild flowers (in season). The entrance to Prairie Moraine is reached by taking US Highway 18/151 to County Highway PB; the entrance is two miles south on County Highway PB. Badger Prairie is located just a few miles from this park.

    Great trails to walk with your dog, some go into woods, some trails are hilly - multiple options and a dog play/fetch space

    I would love to give this park a top rating; in many ways it is a wonderful spot to take your pup for a long run, and get some good exercise in for yourself. But beware! People, for some reason, do not appear to pick up after their dogs. You are in danger of stepping in it and worse, if you have a poo eater like me, your dog will find plenty to scarf up here. Wish it weren't so...... great park otherwise.

    I had heard about Prairie Moraine dog park and finally took my two labs there. This dog park is awesome! A huge area for the dogs to run, hike and play! I would suggest anyone with dogs to check it out!

    This is a expansive fenced in park with many paths thru both woodlands and praire. It has some elevation changes so be prepared for some moderate hills. Benchs are located throughout. No water so bring some for you and your dog. $5 fee or license required. For those interested in geology, this area is part of where a glacer once ended. The ridgeline on the north side of the park represents debris left by the glacer when it melted away. Multiple strange rocks not native to wisconsin (erratics) have been left by the glacier. The only warning, if you have a dog that might run away, this is not the place for you. With a great amount of room to run, with cover in high grass, bushes and trees, you will have a hard time getting your dog back.

    All of our dogs have loved this place. We have outside dogs who need to romp and this place does the trick. We all get our exercise walking these trails and the dogs love running in and out of the grass. They've never encountered a mean dog, and every person we see is really nice. The trails could be a little better marked as it is easy for a newbie to get lost and wander in circles.

    This park is great. It has space for dogs to play and trails within the dog park that are off leash. There is another entrance next to the park to the Ice Age Trail (leash required). So whatever you wish to do, your dog is guaranteed to have a fun filled day.

    As the description says, best dog park around! Who doesn't love hiking with their pooch? Tall grass, woods, and areas to play! Plenty of apple trees around to satisfy any hungry owner as well. This park is HUGE and I do not recommend it to anyone who has a disobedient dog or one who will take off and go exploring on their own.. It may take you a while to find your pup!
