The river offers many venues from small town festivals, camping, canoeing, hiking, biking, and adventure parks. You will come back over and over to this area because there are many places and activities to share.

The Upper St. Croix River Valley is one of the Most Scenic Wild Rivers in the Country. Rent a car for a day or drive from Stillwater, MN (great local town) North on MN 95 to US 8, Head East about 3 miles and you find two great State Parks on opposite sides of the St. Croix river. Rent a canoe and paddle down the St. Croix for an afternoon. (Vendors pick you up and return you to your car). Picnic in one of the parks or along the river. Cross the river at Taylor's Falls (another small river town) to Wisconsin. Consider a paddleboat trip through the rock formations of the St. Croix Dalles, rock formations carved by glaciers. Travel East on Hwy 8 for more choices: 1. turn Left on Hwy "H" and travel 15 miles to Wilkins Bone Lake Bar & Resort. Great local food, (Best Pizza in the County) and enjoy views of beautiful Bone Lake from the patio (covered and open) or from many views inside the Bar/Restaurant. Return South to Hwy 8, head West and turn South on WI 35 to travel through more small towns. You have option of crossing St. Croix River in Osceola (about 15 miles) or Stillwater (about 30 miles). This trip is great any time of year. Fall color trips are a MUST.

While we preferred our trip to Stillwater, MN on the St. Croix River, over our time in Hudson, WI on the St. Croix River; Hudson does have a nice beach with restroom/changing facilities and and area to rinse off the sand after a day of play. For sight seeing and scenic views, Stillwater is the better option.

We are boating a lot on the st croix river. You can swim, stay overnight on the beach make a camp fire and meet other boaters. It' s a very good brake after a long week at work.
