A great "get away" park only one hour from the Twin Cities, William O'Brien provides a beautiful setting for quality recreation along the banks of the St. Croix River. Hiking trails offer quiet exploration of the park's rolling, wooded hills. For anglers, the channels of the St. Croix have northerns, walleye, bass and trout. Ideal for canoeing, the river is also a migratory pathway that offers visitors an exciting diversity of sights and sounds. In the winter, snowshoeing, skiing and camping attract enthusiasts.

Great MN State Park and River Access

William O'Brien State Park is a great Minnesota State Park that is located right on the shores of the St. Croix River. This park offers a Fishing Pier on Lake Alice, as well as bank fishing on the St. Croix River and it's backwaters. There is also a boat launch available with ample parking. Not to mention this section of the river is usually pretty good for fishing!
