    The Namekagon and St. Croix Rivers are experiencing late season high water levels due to recent rainfall. River users should prepare for swifter than normal currents, cool water temperatures, and floating or submerged debris in the rivers. More »


The St. Croix National Scenic Riverway is able to accept donations directly, or through the St. Croix River Association, the friends group for the park.

Public support is an essential element in the management, preservation, and restoration of National Park Service lands. No other federal agency relies as heavily on the generosity and kindness of its visitors.

The St. Croix River Association is a nonprofit organization that protects, restores and celebrates the St. Croix River and its watershed. It partners with the National Park Service as the Riverway’s Friends Group and others so that the St. Croix is a place where

  • Waters run free and clean
  • Habitat remains plentiful to sustain our unique and diverse flora and fauna
  • People have access to our National Park and the park flourishes
  • Towns throughout the basin thrive and people celebrate the river

If you are interested in donating directly to the park you may contact the Riverway Superintendent by phone at (715) 483-2290 or e-mail. Donations (checks payable to the National Park Service) may be sent to:
