Mississippi River-Coon Rapids Dam to Hastings Professional Review and Guide

"The metro stretch of the Mississippi varies dramatically. At times gritty and industrial, nonetheless offers an oasis of nature in the heart of the city.

The metro stretch of the Mississippi varies dramatically. The 6-mile stretch from Coon Rapids Dam (river mile 866.3) to I-694 (river mile 860.4) resembles the river farther upstream, with several easy rapids, deep rocky holes, a fringe of woods along the bank, and good fishing. Homes line the banks in places, but the river appears largely natural."
