Ashland Marina

We’re just a short walk up from the marina!

Whether you’re sailing from Bayfield, fishing the bay, or circumnavigating Lake Superior on a paddleboard, tie up your rig and stop in for a cold drink and a great meal!

The Ashland Marina is located at the foot of Ellis Avenue North on Lake Superior’s Chequamegon Bay. Lake Superior is known for its fresh water and the Ashland Marina reflects this clean tradition. Their 121 slip marina includes washrooms with showers, fuel and pumpout, water, electricity, the marina office and ship store, and a dock attendant. All amenities are conveniently located next to the piers. 

Allow the Ashland Marina to be your starting point to sail thousands of square miles of easily navigated water. Enjoy breathtaking views of sunsets on tree lined shores. Swim in crystal clear fresh water. Discover abundant fish and wildlife. Embrace our historic city and downtown shops, along with restaurants and grocery stores - all with the appeal that only northern Wisconsin can offer and within walking distance of the marina. Our view is Superior!

What Our Customers Say

  • "Splendid view overlooking the bay, large portions, no one left hungry and it's interesting to dine in a historical hotel. Sam is a great waiter, he made us feel at home!"
  • "Very good dining experience....excellent food, great portions, and friendly staff. Great view of the lake and a beautiful sunset. Highly recommended!"
  • "Went to Ashland from Bayfield for a change on our mini vacation and hit a home run here! Our server Heather admitted she was in training but did a wonderful job taking care of us. She was personable and checked on us often. My ribeye was cooked perfect and my wife had the shrimp dinner which was excellent. Big fresh and cooked right battered and fried Shrimp. The bill was very reasonable as well."
  • "For starters, the chicken artichoke soup is the best soup I've ever had. The steak sandwich was very tender and extremely flavorful. The fries were crispy, seasoned and cooked to perfection. My only regret was I should have ordered a bowl of soup instead of a cup. Awesome view, atmosphere and the service was first rate. Love this place!!"
  • "Their new restaurant looks great. The food was amazing and service was great. We sat on the deck and had a great view. The perfect meal is crab cakes to start, Cobb Salad, and finish up with some Swedish Cream. Delicious!!"
