Located on a northern bay of beautiful Lake Pepin, Bay City enjoys scenic views of the Mississippi River bluffs and ample opportunities to experience the lake. Bay City prides itself on the frequent eagle viewing and fishing opportunities available. Head out on the lake in a canoe or on a boat to enjoy fishing, swimming, boating, and wildlife viewing.
Today, its small town charm and family owned businesses welcome you to camp along the river and enjoy their peaceful community. Bay City Campground allows campers to pitch a tent right along the lake shore and make use of amenities such as a public boat launch, sandy beach, and play area. Just minutes from shopping in Red Wing and less than an hour from the bustle of Minneapolis, Bay City is a great escape to the Mississippi River Valley.
