Relocate Osceola Landing Boat Launch Area for Visitor Safety and Enjoyment
The purpose of the project is to address visitor safety concerns between pedestrians, motorized boaters, and non-motorized boaters. Improve management of commercial use operations (landing, launching, staging, loading, and shuttling), enhance day use activities (fishing, picnicking, walking, etc.) and address shoreline erosion and hazardous tree removal.
Osceola Landing is the busiest National Park Service landing on the St. Croix River. Well known as the take-out point of the popular day trip from Minnesota or Wisconsin Interstate Park through the Dalles, the landing also provides access for motorized boats and paddlers headed downstream. Additionally, the day use area is a place for picnicking, fishing, walking, and enjoying the beauty of the river.
