St Croix Boat landings??????

9 posts in this topic

Looking for a decent boat landing on the St Croix between Hudson and Stillwater. Our monday night fishing league has 10 boats. Looking not to pay if we can avoid it. Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure if this is out of your way or not, but I launch from the Bluffs. One if the nicest launches I've been on and it's like $25 for a 1 year pass. Just get a washington county pass and it works for several parks.

I'll second the St. Croix Bluffs regional park. good well protected launch and slips. Gets pretty crowded at times. may be a little further south than you are looking for; but a quality palce to launch.

There's a public access just north of the marina in stillwater. Can be tough going if the water level is low, but otherwise a nice spot. The parking lot (about 15 trailer spaces) is right on 95, you can't miss it, then the launch is down the hill.

As posted above,the public launch on the north end of Stillwater is the only free launch around these parts.It usually gets pretty full though.Beachhouse marina in Bayport is 10bucks during the week for fishing boats but if you have to use the park for parking your trailer thats another 10.You can get a season pass over in Hudson for the launch at the park,I think its around 75bucks, less if you are a resident.Beanies is on the Mn side,Im not sure what their weekday rates are,but those are your options up in the area you want to go.

Benies is $15 on the weekends, nice and deep but gets busy. They do have several different summer packages. I think the unlimited one was around $450 for the season.

Otherwise further south is windmill in Afton but that's $19 but they do a good job. They have some there to help launch or load your boat (works well if your alone) and they will pick you up in a golf cart from where you park.

Welcome to FM, oldguy!

Good luck with the fishing league this year. I'm the new guy in the league this year, but watch out!!! grin.gif (Who are you)?

My vote...Boomsite (north of Stillwater). Its free, and shouldn't be very busy during the week. Beanies is right by I-94 if you want to fish further south, and I think it is $10 during the week.

Team Undecided (for now)

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.
