About This Blog

Rivers are flowing, changing, currents of water. We are drawn to rivers to paddle, fish, camp, or to just sit and watch moving water. Follow this blog for updates on recreational opportunities, park programs, current events, and the changing seasons of the St Croix and Namekagon Rivers.
