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.

A project to improve safety, commercial operations, and the day use area at Osceola Landing on the St. Croix River will take place throughout 2022 and into the spring of 2023. Site layout, tree maintenance, and repair of the existing landings is planned for October and November 2021.

The National Park Service will be adding a new launch for motorized boats, so that the launching and landing of motorized and nonmotorized watercraft can be separated. This will ease congestion and address safety issues among pedestrians and vehicles at the river access locations. The project also includes additional parking, a paved walking path, a new orientation/waiting area, new vault toilets, and upgrades to the comfort station and other amenities.
