Featuring 200 miles of clean water and numerous recreational activities, Saint Croix National Scenic Riverway is a must visit RV getaway destination for those who love the great outdoors. Located in eastern Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin, the Saint Croix National Scenic Riverway consists of 252 miles of river and the adjacent land along its bank. One of the original eight National Wild and Scenic Rivers, the river is also the largest scenic riverway east of the Mississippi River.
The Saint Croix National Scenic Riverway was first inhabited by the Dakota and Ojibwe Indians who made their own clothing, built their own homes and hunted for their food. The river later was used to transport logs, steamboats carrying cargo, and ferries for cars that were operated by pulleys before bridges were built.
Since the riverway is so large, you have plenty of different options for those seeking recreational fun. Some of the most popular activities include fishing, paddling, boating, and birdwatching along with two great visitor centers that will give you the chance to learn more about the history of the river.

Interstate State Park and Wild River State Park are two of the most popular camping destinations but you can also stay further downstream at William O'Brien State Park. The Saint Croix National Scenic Riverway is available to visit all year round.
