Lower St. Croix River Professional Review and Guide
"This river trip begins with some lingering: Take time to paddle around the picturesque rock gorge, the Dalles of the St. Croix, before following the slow and wide river south amid bluffs along the border between Minnesota and Wisconsin. The stretch is mostly undeveloped but easily accessible. Pass another rocky constriction and then enjoy an easy paddle to a Minnesota-side takeout across the river at Osceola.From the concrete ramp at the put-in, paddle upstream to the right and explore the impressive cut in the basalt rock. This gorge is known as the Dalles of the St. Croix an dis the most scenic thing you'll see all day. The estimated paddle time does not include whatever time you spend here ogling the towering rock cliffs."
