A Dog Day Afternoon at Ashland State Park

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. Ashland State Park

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