Do you live for the outdoors?

This is a great place to see the outdoors

Paddle the Mississippi’s gentle backwaters on one of our scenic canoe and kayak trails where regal water birds watch you glide by, or take the family for a spin in a rented canoe or kayak on Lake Winona. Watercraft rentals are also available at Prairie Island. See the Winona Canoeing Guide of popular water routes with directions and tips.

Broken Paddle

Our focus is to provide an intimate perspective of the rich and diverse life that thrives in the oxbow meanders and hidden backwaters of the Mississippi. Bald eagles, rare migratory birds, deep forest canopy, and a plethora of unique mammals, reptiles, amphibians and flora are sighted each trip.

Picnic on the beach

Prairie Island Park

An easy bike ride from the heart of downtown Winona, Prairie Island Park is the perfect getaway for an afternoon picnic. Pack some sandwiches and dine at the beach on the calm backwaters of the Mississippi River where you can watch eagles fish for their lunch in the Lock and Dam 5A spillway.

We love climbing

Rock-climbing enthusiasts love scaling Sugar Loaf bluff, a city landmark that rises 500 feet above the Mississippi River Valley to provide an unmatched view for any willing to mount the summit. Sugar Loaf Trail parking is along the roadway on Lake Boulevard and the trailhead is located behind the Edina Realty parking lot. The Winona State University Outdoor Recreation Department offers guided climbs during the summer. Looking for even more adrenaline? Try our Winona Ice Park in the winter!
