Providing a unique camping experience...

The City of Ashland offers a variety of camping opportunities for all sorts of travelers. Whether you drive a Class A motor home, or prefer the simplicity of a 2-person tent, we have a site for you. If you like the open lake air or the feel of the woods surrounding you, we have both! Ashland is approximately 24 miles from Bayfield WI and access to the Apostle Islands.  

Kreher Park

Kreher is a 33 site RV only park, with restrooms and showers, onsite water & electricity (30 & 50 amp), Wifi, playground, swimming beach, pavilion and dump station. We do not have full sewer hook up. The park is located on the southern shores of Lake Superior in Chequamegon Bay with easy access to/from US Hwy 2, the Waterfront pedestrian/bike trail, the Ashland Ore dock, City boat launch & City Center. 

Prentice Park

Prentice is located on the western edge of Ashland, offering 6 primitive tent camping sites (no electricity) and 7 RV sites with onsite water & electricity. The park also has restrooms and showers. There is no Wifi in this park. Prentice Park is one of the “jewels” of the City’s park system with multiple artesian wells, 2+ miles of ADA trail, playground, pavilions, and easy access to US Hwy 2 and Lake Superior.

Our campgrounds are run on a first-come-first-served basis. At this time we do not take reservations for daily or weekly camping.
