Kinnickinnic State Park Current conditions


All park trails are open to foot travel. Trail surfaces are generally dry. Mountain bikes and/or fat tire bikes are not allowed on park trails. Trail Map [PDF]


Fishing on the Kinnickinnic River is open. A valid Wisconsin fishing license and trout stamp are required. Anglers have been finding success with Pink Squirrels, Caddis Larva and Soft Hackles. Several hatches have been observed in the area.


Warmer temperatures have kayakers enjoying the scenery along the lower Kinnickinnic river. The river and associated lots can be busy on warm weekends. Please respect other users and plan ahead to avoid congestion.

All vehicles parked adjacent to the park, and those that are parked, loading or unloading in the Angler’s parking lot, are required to have a valid Wisconsin state park admission sticker.

The St. Croix River has fallen below the 683-foot slow no wake threshold. However, boaters should monitor river levels and conditions prior to venturing out on the river. 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.


Trees are filling out with newly sprouted leaves and the grass is growing fast. Some early blooming bushes are adding color to the landscape and other spring flowers should soon be following suit. White-tailed deer fawns should be arriving any day and newly hatched clutches of pheasants and turkeys are on their way. The spring mushroom season has been delayed because of low soil temperatures, but improving conditions will have mushroom hunters searching for their new secret spot. Bluebirds, Humming Birds and Baltimore Orioles have all been spotted in the area.

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 not accepted at Kinnickinnic State Park.
