Sauk River-Sauk Centre to Richmond Professional Review and Guide

"The upper Sauk, a meandering farmland river, has several public accesses and campsites, making possible overnight trips or several different day trips.

Put in below the dam in Sauk Centre. For its first 25 miles, the river winds through marsh and lowlands, which provide habitat for many kinds of waterfowl. Many of these areas are protected as state wildlife management areas. Throughout the river’s length, the valley is heavily farmed, with only a thin screen of hardwoods flanking the river."
