The City of Anoka provides boat slips for lease at 3 locations on the Rum River. Each location provides a public dock with the lease slips separated by a locking gate.
The slips at Akin Riverside Park provide boaters with access to the lower Rum River and the Mississippi River.
The slips at Riverfront Park and Rum River North provide boaters access to the Wild Scenic Rum River (above the dam).
Water levels permitting, the slips are installed in time for the fishing opener each season. The boards that raise the recreational pool above the dam, are installed prior to any of the docks/rental slips being installed above the dam.
