The Kinnickinnic River is one of many that flow down from Wisconsin’s unglaciated western boundary into Minnesota’s border rivers such as the Mississippi and, in this case, the St. Croix. Renowned as an active trout stream, its fast-flowing waters push sediment out into the St. Croix, where it settles to form the Kinnic kinnic delta, reducing the width of that river’s channel by half. It was the mouth of this river that first drew attention to the area as a prime candidate for a Wisconsin park.
