Landfall is a city in Washington County. The population was 686 at the 2010 census, and it is the smallest community in Washington County in terms of area. It lies on the eastern shore of Tanner's Lake on Interstate 94.

Landfall is an incorporation of a manufactured home community. Landfall is one of only two incorporated cities in America that consist primarily of manufactured housing; the other is the Twin Cities suburb of Hilltop.


From 1953 to 1997 all of the land in Landfall was owned by one family. Mobile homes were built on the land after there was a shortage of affordable housing. The city was incorporated in 1959. In the early 1990s a developer attempted to purchase the city for a shopping mall. The Washington County Housing and Redevelopment Authority purchased the land and sold it to the city in 1997. Since then the city has rented mobile home lots to residents. All homes in the city are owner occupied. Rental of mobile homes is prohibited.
