Online Payments

In an effort to serve the public better, effective August 1, 2017 the Parks Department began accepting Online Reservation Requests and Payments (credit/debit card or electronic check, also known as eChecks) for County Park Shelters.

Park Shelter Reservation Fees:

  • $35 per shelter on weekdays, excluding holidays.
  • $60 per shelter for county residents on weekends and holidays.
  • $75 per shelter for non-county residents on weekends and holidays.

To reserve one of our shelters you must complete the following:

  • All required information on the Shelter Reservation Form
  • Determine payment type:
    • ONLINE:  If you wish to make an online payment, use the link provided during the reservation process that will take you to an External/secure page to obtain your 7-digit confirmation number.
    • CASH:  Hand deliver (cash or check) or mail (check) your payment to Chisago County Parks.
  • Return to the Shelter Reservation Form and Complete the Payment Box:
    • For ONLINE PAYMENTS enter the 7-digit confirmation number received.
    • For CASH PAYMENTS enter CASH.
  • Click the [Submit/Submit and Print] button at the bottom of the Shelter Reservation Form Page.

The calendar should say pending when you are finished. Once we confirm your payment has been received we will confirm your reservation request and it will be time/date stamped. If you processed your payment online, but do NOT submit the Shelter Reservation Form the date you were requesting will be available to others. After you have completed the process, please review the calendar for the specific shelter you were wanting to reserve and make sure that the date shows pending. If not, please contact Chisago County Parks via email or call 651-674-2345.

You have the option of using the links above to make a reservation request for a specific park shelter and then pay online via credit card, debit card or electronic check. You can also, after submitting your reservation request online, either hand deliver or mail your payment to: Chisago County Parks, P.O. Box 815, 38871 7th Avenue, North Branch, MN 55056.

Note:  A 2.5% ($2.00 minimum) fee will be assessed when paying with a credit/debit card or a $1.50 fee will be assessed for eChecks up to $10,000.


  • Each request may only be for one day.
  • Each day requested must be submitted and paid for separately.
  • Reservations are not confirmed until payment is received and shelter availability is confirmed by parks staff.
  • Any requests for multiple days will be denied.
  • Requests will only be accepted for the current year.
