Even before they were protected as part of a unique National Park in 1968, the St. Croix and Namekagon Rivers were well-known paddling and fishing rivers. Over 50 years later, these waters continue to create memories. Whether you are a beginning kayaker looking for an easy day paddle or an experienced canoeist searching for a weeklong adventure, over 200 miles of protected waters at the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway await your discovery!
