A Dog Day Afternoon at Ashland State Park 

 

It was a lovely opening day at Ashland State Park today as people launched boats, looked for their favorite fishing spots and just enjoyed the sun-drenched day.  

Ashland State Park is located right off of Route 135 in Ashland.  The park has 470 acres including the 157 acre Ashland Reservoir.  

It is notably early right now but when the season is full swing the park can become a bit crowded; however, today it was quiet and serene with the first few local people setting out to embark on a leisurely day.

There are numerous points off of the reservoir that can be enjoyed by the public during the summer months with beach areas of Ashland State Park that are staffed with lifeguards.  There is also a great picnic area in the forest right next to the beach. 

Bicycling and hiking trails also run through the forest and and the park is wheelchair accessible. 

With picnic tables, barbecue pits and crystal clear water, Ashland State Park offers many pleasurable days during the spring and summer months. 

The park opens early in the morning and you can stay until dusk.  And, there is ample parking available for all. Dog in a boat

 

 

With plenty of wildlife abound as a well as our domestic friends, Ashland State Park is clearly not limited only to human enjoyment.

Great photo. Love the photo of the dog even more. Hopefully you'll be seeing a lot more beautiful days with nice weather! Have a great weekend!

I hope you'll remember me if you learn of anyone moving to "The OC" and I will do the same!

Hi Claudette:

And what a beautiful day it was indeed!

Love the water photo and you know, I especially LOVE the Yellow Lab in the boat.  He was looking right at you to the photo!

Have a great weekend...

Hi, Toula:

He was staring at me wondering why I was taking his photo, I am sure. But, he was having a lovely boat ride out on Ashland Reservoir.

Claudette, that is a beautiful lake/reservoir.  It reminds me of a place I go to in Wisconsin.  I'm thinking right now would be very nice to rent or borrow a row boat, canoe or kayak and be alone out on the lake...just to get away from business for a while.

Hi, Nick:

It was very nice out there today. You would have enjoyed it. You have been working hard and I am sure you need a break.  Why not come to Ashland?

Chris Ann:

After all the snow you had this year, you are definitely due for some nice weather.  I hope you have a chance to enjoy it.

Kathy:

We had record-breaking temperatures that day - 75 degrees is unheard of this early in the season.  It was wonderful.

Hi Claudette...If you were out on the water also, good for you.  If not, that lab was probably wondering why you weren't. 

The water is a beautiful blue and very inviting.  I'm a goner when it comes to water so Ashland State Park would be a great hangout for me.

Hi, Kate:

I am not much of a water person (I can't swim) but the dog was certainly loving it. You are welcomed at Ashland State Park anytime.
