For the past 5 years, SCRA has sponsored a 6-day paddle on either the St. Croix River or the Namekagon. For 2016, we will be paddling the beautiful Namekagon River once again. The journey will last 6-days, cover 92-miles, and is perfect for both canoe or kayak. This is a partially supported paddle; we will haul your overnight gear and provide other limited services.
Expect to unplug and reconnect with the natural world. You’ll challenge yourself, be inspired, and build lasting relationships with a new community of paddlers. Namekagon River communities will welcome you, each sharing their unique personalities. You will explore a national park and see an abundance of wildlife. In addition, every night at camp you’ll inspired and informed by a variety of educational programs.
We’ll be making updates to this site over the next several weeks with route and resources information. While you wait, you can read about the 2015 Paddle Namekagon Route, take a look at the photos taken by previous participants at scraphotos.org, or start planning with our What to Bring and Food & Meal Planning pages.
