ST. CROIX NATIONAL SCENIC RIVERWAY
This National Scenic Riverway is comprised of 252 miles of the St. Croix and Namekagon Rivers. Both of these rivers have National Wild and Scenic River status, with the St. Croix River forming part of the Wisconsin-Minnesota border.
Along the Riverway are some high cliffs, as well as forests, marshes, swamps, and pools. The rivers are dammed in several places. Among the area’s wildlife are bear, coyote, and fox.
Activities: The Riverway is especially suitable for canoeing, with outfitters and canoe rentals available nearby. Limited hiking is possible on some trails, most of which are short. Fishing is allowed, and hunting is permitted in season.
Camping Regulations: There are primitive campsites at many locations along the shore and on islands. Visitors are asked to use these established sites, although camping is also allowed at nondesignated areas along the way. No permits or fees are required. Campfires may be built, but only in established fire rings. It’s recommended that a stove be brought for cooking.
