Kinnickinnic State Park Current conditions


All trails are currently open for foot travel. Surfaces vary from dirt and dead leaves, to grass and gravel. The Hidden Falls Trail on the park’s south side, is one of the most scenic and popular trails in the park. It is accessed off of 770th Avenue.

The Kinnickinnic River is open for fishing through Oct. 15. The river is running at slightly above normal levels and clarity is generally good.

Kayakers are enjoying the last warm days of the season and can find quiet solitude on the river. All vehicles parked adjacent to the park, and those that are parked, loading or unloading in the Angler’s parking lot, need to have a valid park admission sticker.

Due to recent autumn rains the St. Croix River water level has risen from its low summer level. It is currently at about 685 feet above mean sea level and is expected to remain above 683 for the foreseeable future. The entire St. Croix River is currently slow no wake and will remain so until the level drops below the 683-foot threshold.

The hill from the St. Croix parking lot to the beach is closed to vehicle traffic. It is still accessible to foot travel and is the most convenient access to the St. Croix River.


Autumn colors are beginning to replace the greens of summer. Maple trees are enveloped in red and orange. Oaks are holding fast to green, which makes the gold of the birches and aspen even more distinguished. Cooler weather will begin pushing waves of migrating waterfowl south. 

More information

A vehicle admission sticker is required year-round. When the park office is closed, use the self-registration pay kiosk to buy daily or annual admission stickers. One-hour stickers are no longer accepted at Kinnickinnic State Park.
