The river! In the midwest, we are very lucky to be surrounded by many great rivers, lakes and Great Lakes. The St. Croix stands out among them all. With many parks, campgrounds and overlooks along the St. Croix, it's quite hard NOT to get out...More

We passed over the St Croix on the second day we were in the USA. Being from southern Australia where fresh water is at a premium and rivers with actual water in them are rare, the St Croix was a really awesome sight for me......More

Seriously,,get yourself out on the St. Croix at least once every summer. It's the most beautiful river you can imagine.

Stillwater is a great place to walk around. Although it is mostly shops, you will be able to see the historic homes and waterfront. The dining is excellent. At least 2 candy stores and several ice cream shops.

Enjoy the water as you dine outside at the Dock Cafe or the Freighthouse. The old town feel of Stillwater along with the St. Croix river provide a great day/evening for yound and old.

Great for boating and water sports, whether with your own yacht, speed boat or even canoe, or riding atop one of the classic paddle/river boats. Water Fun, plus great views of the foliage and nature's finest on both sides of the river.

I always enjoyed hiking along this river and boating on it also. Nice sandbars to a picnic stop, access to Stillwater, and hiking trails along the state parks. Canoeing is great also.

Stillwater is right on the St Croix River and provides a quick 'get out of town' from the larger cities of Mpls/St Paul. It's roots are that of a lumberjack town and Main Street still hold the ambience of by-gone days. Great restaurants too.

Swimming, boating, fishing and even camping are a great way to spend the days.
