Derge Park

Derge Park, 13 acres, located 5 minutes northwest of the City of Beaver Dam, is on the west-central shore of Beaver Dam Lake. The 6,600 acre lake provides excellent fishing and is popular for sailing, speed boating, and water skiing. Besides providing access to Beaver Dam Lake with a boat launch, piers and over 500 feet of shoreline, Derge Park contains 25 campsites with 30 amp electric hookups and asphalt pads, picnic shelters, a shower/restroom building and a dump station. Derge Park is an excellent place to hold group campouts and picnics, family reunions and other group events and an ideal location for hunters and fishermen seeking access to Beaver Dam Lake. A system of paved pathways makes Derge Park facilities handicap accessible.
