St. Croix River: Minnesota Highway 70 to Taylors Falls Professional Review and Guide

"The St. Croix broadens below MN 70. Though often swift, the river rarely breaks into riffles. The watershed is not as wild as in the upper reaches; nonetheless, state parks and forests protect much of the riverside. It's a fine stretch of river to paddle for a day trip, overnight camping, or fishing for smallmouth bass, walleye, and the occasional northern pike and muskie.

Below MN 70, the St. Croix continues its placid but often swift character. It’s a fine stretch of river to paddle for a day trip, overnight camping, or fishing for smallmouth bass, walleye, and the occasional northern pike and muskie. Much of the riverbank is protected in public land holdings, including Governor Knowles State Forest in Wisconsin, and in Minnesota, Chengwatana State Forest and Wild River State Park. Wild River, one of Minnesota’s newest state parks, fronts nearly 20 miles of the St. Croix. The park is worth a trip in itself: Its 6,800 acres have 35 miles of hiking and ski trails, 20 miles of horse trails, several backpack and canoe campsites, and a large auto campground."
