2018 Namekagon Paddle
Celebrating 50 years on the River
2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway, comprised of 255 miles of the St. Croix and Namekagon rivers, in Northwest Wisconsin. Plan to celebrate this momentous occasion on the Namekagon river!
The St. Croix River Association (SCRA) is hosting 2018 Paddle Namekagon June 9-15. This 6-day, 92-mile river camping trip offers incredible scenery and a chance to explore one of the nation’s first wild and scenic river national parks. SCRA makes it easy for those that want to experience a multi-day river adventure with some conveniences. The shuttle truck carries all overnight gear, a camp kitchen is set up daily, and we offer fun and educational programs.
The Namekagon is one of two rivers that make up the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway. The Riverway is home to many types of fish, birds, and wildlife both large and small including deer, bear and beavers, as well as endangered species such as the Karner Blue butterfly. The Namekagon is a clean river that changes around every bend. It is generally a ‘friendly’ river, prized for its fishing and floating. It has a few class I and II rapids to make it interesting.
