Bayview Park Ashland

Ashland, Wisconsin

Located on the NE side of Ashland, Bayview park is a favorite of locals and travelers due to its great amenities and views of the Ashland lighthouse.

The park facilities include a picnic pavilion, restroom and drinking water, ample parking and an AMAZING swimming and fishing peer complete with a diving board.

Easy access to town and local restaurants make visiting this park a breeze. If you are in the area in mid- July, be sure to check out the Bay Days Festival held here annually.

Dogs are allowed on leash. Please pick up after your pet. No lifeguards are on duty at the park so swimming is done at your own risk. Additional questions can be directed to the City of Ashland at 715-682-7059.

Please be sure to read and observe all posted regulations. Prior to enjoying your day at the beach or on the water, please check the local weather forecast and be attentive to changing conditions.

Source Information

Heath Units in Wisconsin test beaches from May through September. When sample results are posted on the Wisconsin Beach Health website, Milwaukee Riverkeeper updates Swim Guide.

Recreational public beaches in Wisconsin are tested May through September. High priority beaches are sampled at least five times per week. They are posted when a single sample exceeds 235 E. coli / 100 ml or when the geometric mean of samples collected over a 30-day period exceeds 126 E. coli / 100 ml. Medium priority beaches are sampled at least twice per week. Low priority beaches are sampled at least once per week. They are posted when a single sample exceeds 235 E. coli / 100 ml. All beaches will be closed if E. coli in a single sample exceeds 1,000 / 100 ml.

In the USA, the Environmental Protection Agency has two sets of recommendations for freshwater and marine beaches. A single sample at a freshwater beach should not exceed 235 E. coli / 100 ml of water. A single sample at a marine beach should not exceed 104 Enterococci / 100 ml of water. The geometric mean of 5 samples from a freshwater beach should not exceed 126 E. coli / 100 ml of water. The geometric mean of 5 samples from a marine beach should not exceed 35 Enterococci / 100 ml of water. States may choose to use this standard or they may substitute a standard that is "as protective as" the EPA's recommendation. The Beach Act is the nation's primary beach protection law.
