Wild River State Park is located along 18 miles of the beautiful St. Croix River. The park attracts people who enjoy camping, hiking, horseback riding, canoeing, interpretive programs, self-guided trails, and cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

Wild River Canoe & Kayak Rental is open on weekends at the main boat landing. Shuttles run from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sunday and holidays. Visitors can rent a canoe or kayak, take the shuttle to the park's Sunrise landing, and paddle back to the main park boat landing. Reservations are recommended on weekends. Reservations are required for trips on Monday, Thursday or Friday. Call 651-465-6315 for information or reservations, or visit http://www.wildrivercanoe.com/.

Easy Launch and Good Camping Available.

We rented a paddle in campsite through the State Park. The launch works well and is in good shape for canoe/kayak landings. The water was very high and fast during our trip so I wasn't able to get a good gauge on the fishing in that stretch of the river. Shuttle and Rental services are offered and available through the State Park.
