Extent of available data.
This data layer indicates the locations of Public Water Access sites. It was developed by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (MN DNR). These sites allow users to launch their boats into a water body. They include both MN DNR-managed sites and sites that are managed by other organizations and are free for the public to use. Boating is an economically important and popular recreational activity in Minnesota. Many boaters depend on public access sites to participate.
