Directions to Square Lake

From the Twin Cities (Southern Metro)

  • Take I-694 N and exit right onto Hwy 36 East.
  • Take Hwy 36 E toward Stillwater for approx. 5 miles to Hwy 15 North and a set of stop lights.
  • Hwy 15 North (also called MANNING Rd.) runs to the left.
  • Stay on Hwy 15 until you turn right onto Hwy 7 (Square Lake Tr.).
  • Follow Hwy 7 for approx. 3miles as it curves downward a hill, turn left into Golden Acres Campground. (Look for chain link fencing).

If you make it to the County Park, you've gone too far; turn around.

We'll occupy several picnic tables next to the beach at Golden Acres.

From FantaSea Scuba & Travel, this trip should take about an hour. See you there!
