Stewart County Park Beach open

Public Health Madison & Dane County tested bacteria levels and checked for algae blooms on 6/12/2024. The results were acceptable. The shallow near-shore temperature was (temp) 68°F. Even though the results were acceptable at the time of monitoring, algae levels can change quickly depending on waves and wind. Always take a look at water conditions before you enter the water and avoid contact with algae blooms.

Stewart Park was established in 1935, making it the first County Park in Dane County. Within this 191-acre park is shimmering Stewart Lake, an artificial lake on spring-fed tributary of Blue Mound Creek. The lake offers a challenge for Trout and Bass fishing. Recreational facilities include picnic shelters, play equipment, and cross-country ski and hiking trails.
