Dower Lake Pier

Staples, MN

This one-of-a-kind, 600-foot public fishing pier replaced the original railroad structure on the northeast side of Dower Lake. The City of Staples worked in partnership with the Trails and Waterways Division of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to develop this project. Anglers and wildlife enthusiasts now have a quiet, safe place adjacent to the Dower State Wildlife Management Area to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and escape the stress and pressure of day-to-day life.
