St. Cloud / ˌ s eɪ n t ˈ k l aʊ d / is a city in the state of Minnesota and the largest population center in the state's central region. Its population is 67,109 according to the 2015 US census estimates, making it Minnesota's tenth largest city.  St. Cloud is the county seat of Stearns County  and was named after the city of Saint-Cloud , France (in Île-de-France, near Paris), which was named after the 6th-century French monk Clodoald.
St. Cloud State University , Minnesota's third-largest public university, is located between the downtown area and the Beaver Islands, which form a maze for a two-mile stretch of the Mississippi. The approximately 30 undeveloped islands are a popular destination for kayak and canoe enthusiasts  and are part of a state-designated 12-mile stretch of wild and scenic river. 
St. Cloud owns and operates a hydroelectric dam on the Mississippi that can produce up to nine megawatts of electricity.
