Canoes and Kayaks Available for FREE at Sunfish Lake Park

Sunfish Park Canoe Rental

Whether you want to reduce stress after a hard day’s work, try your hand at recreational fishing, or challenge your upper body and burn calories by paddling as fast as you can – Sunfish Lake is the place to be!

The City of Ramsey, in conjunction with grant funding from Anoka County State Health Improvement Program (SHIP), has installed a self-service canoe and kayak kiosk at Sunfish Lake, located at 6330 Sunwood Drive. The kiosk holds two single-person sit-in kayaks and two three-person canoes. Paddles and life-vests are also provided.

There is no charge for use, but a ‘swipe card’ authorizing access to the watercraft is needed. You may obtain your swipe card (which is yours to keep) by visiting the Engineering Department at Ramsey City Hall. You must read/sign the terms of use agreement and liability waiver and provide proof of identification.  You must be 18 years of age or older to obtain a swipe card; however, children are welcome to accompany adults.
