Canoes & Kayaks

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 Park, 6330 Sunwood Drive located at the intersection of Sunfish Lake Blvd and Sunwood Drive. The kiosk holds two single-person sit-in kayaks and two three-person canoes. Paddles and life-vests are also provided.


How to Rent

There is no charge for use, but a ‘swipe card’ authorizing access to the watercraft is needed. You may obtain a swipe card (which is yours to keep) by visiting the Public Works Facility, 14199 Jaspar Street NW, during the hours of 8:30-11:30 am and 1:00-4:00 pm. You must read and sign the terms of use agreement and liability waiver and provide proof of identification. You must be a resident of Anoka County and be 18 years of age or older to obtain a swipe card.
