There are a handful of potential lines here, all located in and around a waterfall. Some potential exists here for drytooling, but be careful because the rock is soft and would probably scar easily, and the DNR probably would not take kindly to that. Most ice is WI2-3.

Getting There 

Park at the Cox Hollow parking lot, at Enee Point, directly across from the parking for Box Canyon. Hike away from Enee Point(the prominent rock tower) and cross a small creek, which can be jumped. Continue up the main drainage for maybe a couple hundred yards, the ice will be on the right.

The Waterfall WI2-3  Wisconsin : Governor Dodge State Park : ... : Cox Hollow
This is the main line, and it is usually in. Other harder and thinner lines form occasionally. Good for an afternoon. This will have a fairly high volume of water flowing inside it on all but the coldest days....[more]   Browse More Classics in Wisconsin

Heard from an enthusiastic ranger yesterday that this area is sometimes called "Harms Falls" (I'm not sure where to put an apostrophe in that). Good name!
