The Redwood Falls Park offers visitors access to trails, camping, picnicking, overlooks, and shoreline fishing access. Stocked annually with German Brown Trout the Redwood River found in the heart of the Park has two shore line fishing ramps. The author has taken the liberty to distinguish the two ramps by location, one being in the northwest while the other next to it is to the southeast.


The Southeast Ramp has two levels to insure that anglers have access to the water at various water heights.  This pier is the closest of the two from the designated parking area but both are linked via a concrete walkway.  A maintenance road is located in close proximity to this ramp which looks as though it could be used to drop off fishing gear, coolers etc. to cut down on the multiple trips it may take to bring personal items to the ramp from the parking area.  Users could also bring a wagon or something similar to move items from the parking area to the ramp.  At the time of the site review it had recently rained 5 inches, resulting in a water level higher than normal making the lower ramp rather muddy so anglers would have had to use the highest ramp.  This design greatly increasing the access to the river no matter the water level.  

This ramp is located at the inside fork of two rivers.  The streams are very fast moving so fishermen will have to be attentive to their rigs while in the water due to the speed they will be taken down stream.  Anglers can expect to catch walleye, bluegill, and northern pike along with the  brown trout that are planted here.  This park has a high visitor level with many using the trails part of which connects the Ramp with the parking area.  Cell phone coverage is limited due to the elevation, this part of the stream is at a lower elevation than the surrounding area.
