We, at Wild River Outfitters have served paddlers and anglers on the Upper St. Croix and Namekagon Rivers since 1990. Our primary service is canoe and kayak rental and shuttle on this National Scenic Riverway managed by the National Park Service. However, we also have a wonderful small gift shop featuring local crafts and art and have a campground on site. We’re located less than 90 minutes North of Minneapolis/St. Paul. Although paddlers are never very far from civilization, the 150 miles of the river that we serve is relatively remote and has a “wilderness” feel to it.
