Sunrise River

Sunrise River Professional Review and Guide

"A small woodland stream with lively current and several easy rapids, the sunrise is a good bet in the spring or after rain, when the water is high.

The Sunrise, a tributary of the St. Croix River, is a swift, intimate river. The stream is often less than 50 feet wide. From Kost Dam County Park, the Sunrise winds through mostly open land. But below the town of Kost, the stream slips into bottomland and low-lying forest, passing some houses but running primarily through undeveloped land. About halfway through the run, the Sunrise joins the North Branch of the Sunrise, gaining considerably in size."
