Big Marine Park Reserve is in the northern part of Washington County. The park was selected as a regional facility because of its excellent natural resource features, including the St. Croix Valley/northeast ground moraine and high-quality upland and wetland wildlife habitat. When completed, the park will be 1,800 acres, with 80% of its acreage set aside for preservation and protection. This 80% will eventually resemble the land as it was prior to the arrival of the settlers in the mid-1800s.

Vehicle permits are required for all vehicles entering the park.
