overnight parking on the river?

6 posts in this topic

Is it allowed to camp on the st croix? I see a lot of people with bigger boats beached by the kinni narrows in the summer Just wondering if a guy could pop up a tent there for the opener?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Yes you can. I have done the camping opener in a tent out there more than once. There are lots of nice islands north of Stillwater too, but the high water may not leave much extra room for a tent. You should definitely try it though. It's a lot of fun. Always seems to rain though. Bring plenty of dry firewood!

Which launches if any could I leave my truck and trailer parked at overnight? I dont mind if it costs a couple bucks but I would hate to get my rig towed.

I don't think that I have ever seen a no overnight parking sign at the launch in prescott of course I have never looked either. I don't remember ever seeing a vehicle parked down there all night long but if it is legal that would be a worth while place to park. Don't take my word for it that launch being ok for overnight but maybe someone will prove it or disprove it whichever the case may be.

At St Croix Bluffs you can't park in the parking lot overnight, but you can rent a campsite there and keep your rig at the site overnight while you camp out on an island.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
