This is a small city park. Interior roads are tight due to narrow roads, some large boulders, and RVs with awnings out. It's a one way loop through the campground so backups can occur as people are scouting for a site. Most, if not all, the waterfront sites are taken by monthly renters. It's first come, first serve. Sites have some gravel, dirt and grass and some are not well defined. Our site was just on the side of the road. There is water and electric - some are just 30 amp and some are 30/50 amp. WII FI worked off and on and mostly off. Directv worked fine. Verizon signal was very weak even with our amplifier. Even in town, the signal is not very good. This campground is right on Lake Superior, and they have a boat ramp and small beach area. A bike path runs right by the Lake and you can access it from the campground. You can easily walk, bike or drive downtown. Take a fun afternoon drive to Bayfield. There are tours to the Apostle islands as well as a vibrant downtown. We stayed here in a motorhome and would stay again if in the area. We camped at Ashland City RV Park (Kreher Park) in a Motorhome.

Was so glad we spotted this little city park as the hiway east was washed out and Walmart would not let you stay there even with major washout east on hiway 2 after major flooding. Beautiful spot. No office. Self check-in but does have a host camper to give you code to restrooms. We camped at Ashland City RV Park (Kreher Park) in a Motorhome.

As previously stated... city run campground. Interior roads do have some potholes but they are easy enough to navigate if you heed the 5 MPH speed limit. All of the sites are on packed gravel have plenty of grass and space between sites. All sites are back-ins. Reservations are taken only for monthly stays only. The park did not fill up the entire time we were there. Most RVs show up in the late afternoon. Not all sites have 50 amp service. The dump station is making it al most impossible to completely drain the tanks. The campground was quiet at night. We would come back to this park if we were in the area. We camped at Ashland City RV Park (Kreher Park) in a Motorhome.

This is a city park with a playground, picnic tables, and a beach, literally a couple blocks from downtown. There is a fishing pier adjacent to the campground. Locals walk or drive down from their homes to the beach, park, and pier. It is a clean nice place I would bring my family. Food and shopping is near by. There is Internet, (password from the camp host) but I did not use it. All sites are water and electric. Access in and out is good. The dump station is not level. We camped at Ashland City RV Park (Kreher Park) in a Travel Trailer.

We were fortunate to find a site right on Lake Superior, since everything is first come first served (no reservations except monthly). Campsites are very large, however there is little privacy between sites.

Bathrooms/showers are dated, but acceptably clean.

Free WIFI was surprisingly good!

The city of Ashland is awesome, offering everything we could ask for.

This is a beautiful, peaceful campground. We will be back! We camped at Ashland City RV Park (Kreher Park) in a Travel Trailer.

Nice quiet spot right on the shores of Lake Superior. The host was very kind and helpful. Nice playground and beach. Easy walk into town. Great value. We would stay there again. Unfortunately first come/first served unless you are staying for more than a month. We were there off season (late June) just overnight and there were several open spots - I'm guessing it fills up quick later in the summer. Price increases to $30/night peak season. We camped at Ashland City RV Park (Kreher Park) in a Motorhome.

Siri took us the wrong way initially (6th st) - that road is a dead end and does not access the RV park - follow the blue trailer sign.

Nice little park right on Lake Superior. A bit hard to find and access, entrance road goes down a hill through residential area. As mentioned, the construction in the harbor continues 24x7 but we didn't hear much noise. A bit cool and windy when we where there but several sites are right on the water so can sit and watch the waves coming in. We arrived about 1 pm and had our choice of spots right on the water. Place was nearly full by nightfall even though it was mid-October. The view of fall foliage on the hillside across the bay was beautiful. We would stay here again. We camped at Ashland City RV Park (Kreher Park) in a Motorhome.

There is a nice quilt shop a couple of blks away. Visit nearby Bayfield, very quaint. They have sailboats for rent, great dining options. Sail or kayak around the Apostle Islands - they are breathtaking. Take the ferry out to Madeline island, have a drink at Tom's Burned Down Cafe just to say you did...

What a hidden gem. It is a small park located right on the water. It was clean and the hosts were very friendly and informative. It is located adjacent to the city beach. Only spent one night but wished we had more time. It was a great place to relax. Only water and electric with a free dump station but a great value.

This city run campground is very close to town. The interior roads are on asphalt and are full of potholes. All of the sites are on weedy packed gravel. Some sites are larger then others and all sites are back-ins. The sites overlooking the lake were taken by monthly renters. Almost all of the sites were taken by 3 P.M. during the middle of the week. Reservations are taken only for monthly stays only. The utility box contained 20/30 amp service. The electrical voltage was a little weak, hovering around 119. The electrical box and water spigot were on the appropriate side. The dump station was located on a sloop, making it hard to drain the tanks properly. The campground has WiFi but we did not use it. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. There were 3 showers per sex and you needed the code to use them. The separate bathrooms were for the public as well as for the campers. The showers and bathrooms were clean but not very appealing. We did not use them. There is a camp host onsite. There is a EPA Super Fund project going on next to the campground. This will last at least for 2 years. The only entrance to the park was being worked on while we were there. There was some noise from the construction site but it was not that bad. The campground was quiet at night. We would come back to this park if we were in the area. We camped at Ashland City RV Park (Kreher Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great park in the heart of Ashland. Some of the other reviews I read were not very positive and I'm not sure why. The sites were some of the largest we've ever experienced, most other RV parks would cram two campers in the sites, this park reserved for just one. The trees weren't large, but they are growing. The grounds were very well kept and the park sits right on Superior with a fabulous bike trail that goes for miles around the lake--wish we would have had our bikes! Also, if you are a fishing person, there is a really nice boat ramp adjacent to the park. It's a great location for checking out Bayfield and the rest of the area. We would definitely go out of our way to camp here again. We camped at Ashland City RV Park (Kreher Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

A wonderful little park in the heart of Ashland. No reservations and no plastic accepted. Cash or check. Self register, very easy. Recommend arriving early afternoon to claim your site. Make sure there isn't a receipt on the post at your site. That tells your someone has it already. The park fills quickly by late afternoon. Sites are open and very level. Easy satellite setup. No big trees in the way. Kids can swim from the lake beach very close by. Can't say enough about Ashland. We were so impressed with this small, but very clean and beautiful downtown district. They have maybe 15 +/- outside building wall murals that are simply amazing! Two ladies did them all over several years. Local restaurants are real nice and people there were so courteous and friendly. It is a great place to stay to get to the Apostle Islands tour if you're towing your car. Enjoy! We camped at Ashland City RV Park (Kreher Park) in a Motorhome.

Nice park with a great location in Ashland. Beautiful view of Lake Superior and old iron ore dock. Located next to a swimming beach, boat launch, and a running/walking/biking path that follows the waterfront. The park is open (very few trees), but most of the sites are spacious and look to be able to accommodate larger RVs. The bathrooms/showers were OK. They weren't excessively dirty, but the facilities are older and showing their age. On the plus side, the showers were hot and free. We camped at Ashland City RV Park (Kreher Park) in a Motorhome.

Kreher RV Park is the city campground of Ashland,WI. Having recently stayed at another city campground, we have a good basis to compare the two parks. Both parks had nice adjoining beaches, fire pits, picnic tables but here the similarities end. This park has shower facilities that are only open from 6-9 both AM and PM, has no Wi-Fi, the sites are gravel and only somewhat level as opposed to paved in the other park. If you are here for a month, then you probably got a 50 amp hook up. Otherwise, plan on 30 amps. They have no site sewers but do have a dump station and their $30.00 per night ( $10.00 increase from the 2010 rate ) was $5.00 more than the other city park and in our estimation is OVERPRICED for what they give you. Kreher’s dump station is not level but is on both sides and so you need to check it out to maximize the emptying of your tanks. Campers staying in Kreher for a month at a time get to make reservations. The rest operate on a first come, first served basis for available sites, so arrive early to have a chance at a site. Our Verizon cell worked as did our Mi-Fi but the latter was kind of slow. We ended going to the in town McDonalds and posted our blog photos from their site while enjoying coffee. Lastly, their address is 310 Prentice Avenue. We tell you this because this information is not available on any internet sites we came across and nobody seems concerned enough to make this correction/addition to their internet listings. Their sites are spacious with grass around the gravel and viewing the 12 huge building murals and a visit to the Benoit Cheese shop, (23920 County Hwy F ) in Ashland is a great way to see the area and entertain yourself. If coming to the park as a drive in camper, get off the road early to have a chance at getting a site. One last comment, we had our 30 power pedestal cause a problem. The host and maintenance foreman for the park was there to remedy (replace parts) within 15 minutes. That kind of response is a huge plus in every camper's opinion including us. Well done and thanks. We camped at Ashland City RV Park (Kreher Park) in a Motorhome.

Ashland’s Kreher RV Park has 33 rentable sites with water and electric (14) 50 amp, (19) 30 amp, but no sewer. The sites are gravel and not very level. There is a dump station but it is on an incline, making it very difficult or impossible to completely empty your tanks. There are showers located in the public area of the park but they are locked except for the hours from 6:30-10am and 6-9:30pm. The rate is $30 per day or $550 monthly. We camped in site #23, a 50 Amp waterfront site renting it for one month. This site is adjacent to the public area of the park including a children’s playground. The park has no curfew and we observed unsavory activities late at night that made us question the level of security. There is no barrier separating the public area from the RV area except a shallow drainage ditch. If fact, there is a footbridge that connects the playground to campsites #22 & #23. This created constant foot and bicycle traffic through our campsite, by local residents as well as other RVers. Many people here seem to be genuinely ignorant of basic campground etiquette; others just don’t care if they offend. When we brought this to the attention of park authorities, we were told that the people here are not accustomed to having boundaries. Being from Wisconsin ourselves, we expected better! This constant annoyance made this one of the most unpleasant camping experiences we have had. If privacy and security are important to you, you will not be comfortable in this campground. After noticing cautionary signs nearby, we learned that Kreher Park is situated on a contaminated landfill and is adjacent to an area designated as a Superfund site. While swimming is permitted at the park beach (there is no lifeguard) it is prohibited a short distance away due to the presence of toxic sediments. For official information, go to: www.epa.gov/region5/cleanup/ashland/pdfs/ashland_rod_201009.pdf. The Iron Ore Dock, a current attraction, has been designated as being unsafe and is scheduled for removal 2011/2012. Our experience in Ashland outside of the park, has been very pleasant. In fact, the people of Ashland are clearly proud of their city and they make visitors feel welcome. The one exception is the local coin laundries which are a disgrace and greatly over priced. The laundry in nearby Washburn is nice and cost is reasonable. Ashland’s many murals, brownstone buildings, unique shops and cafes are a unique feature. The town has many areas to bike and public parks for recreation. Although Kreher RV Park is in a beautiful setting with gorgeous sunsets, we would not have stayed here if we had known about the situations we described. We will not return. We camped at Ashland City RV Park (Kreher Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

As described by previous posts. Didn't give it a higher score because sites are gravel, no sewer hookups, and not all sites are really level. We barely made leveling out with jacks at site #16 without having to add blocks to keep support under rear tires and jacks. Limited hours for use of showers in morning and evening at least at this time of year. Good Wi-Fi is available at the Great Northern Lakes Visitor Center on Hwy 2 at west end of town and is much better than at the Vaughn library at Main St. and Vaughn. Wal-Mart super center at east end of town on Hwy 2. We had service on our car at the Honda/Toyota dealership and were very satisfied with service and cost. We would definitely return if in the area again. A beautiful spot and a good value We camped at Ashland City RV Park (Kreher Park) in a Motorhome.
