We are a member owned marina and have slips available for rental and sale as well as guest and transient dockage. Governed by a Board of Directors and operated by a General Manager, Sunnyside Marina is member focused, serving "one boater at a time." Our goal is simply to be the premier marina on the St. Croix River, and the staff works to provide the highest quality service and to exceed our boaters' expectations.

Boating from Sunnyside Marina gives our members many options. To the north past Stillwater are numerous islands , limestone bluffs, and incredible natural scenery. To the south of Sunnyside, the river widens and runs through Bayport, Hudson, Afton, and finally meets the great Mississippi in Prescott. There are opportunities for recreational boating, fishing, cruising, anchoring, and beaching your boat on the St. Croix, creating a myriad of boating possibilities. The sunsets are remarkable, eagles soar, and the wooded shoreline and bluffs are breathtaking in every season. The St. Croix River is a nationally protected river and has been designated by Congress as a Wild and Scenic River.

Located at Sunnyside Marina, we offer a ship's store, service department, gas dock, and numerous amenities including cable, picnic and grills areas, and clean restrooms. We also offer launch and haul-out services, as well as winter storage. At Sunnyside Marina, we take care of all that your boat requires. We are a pet friendly marina, asking our members to clean up after their pets and to keep them on a leash. Our membership consists of renters and owners, new and seasoned boaters, families, couples, and singles looking for one thing— a marina that exemplifies quality, competence, and exceptional value in a beautiful setting.

As a private marina, we have the ability to focus on our members' satisfaction as our primary goal. We are not profit driven but strive to run a fiscally sound and professionally managed marina that makes boating at Sunnyside effortless for our boaters and ownership a valuable investment.

We invite you to make Sunnyside Marina your home on the St. Croix in Stillwater, Minnesota.
