When you think of beaches – Wisconsin is probably not the first place that come to mind. BUT. Even here in WI… smack dab in the middle of the country – we do have a lot of great beaches on the shorelines of our lakes! In addition to the regional beaches, there are also neighborhood beaches.
We have compiled Madison, WI area beaches here – if we missed one (or if you have a favorite) please leave a comment so we can add it.
Be sure to also check out Lakeforecast.org which does water quality monitoring and shows open/closed for blue green algae and water clarity.
*Many of these are FREE to access/use; some may require a fee, including the State Parks beaches.
