“Such a scenic, and historic place that calms the soul”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Super place to sail, or enjoy the summer joy. This is a blast but can be swamped with those cigarette boats, tailgater folks and lots of river traffic. Come early

“Canoeing down the St. Croix”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Rented a canoe in Grantsburg, WI and paddled our way down to Osceola. The St. Croix is a wild and scenic river, wonderfully unspoiled and perfect for canoeing.

We have canoed and rode the paddleboats from Taylors Falls, Stillwater and St. Paul. Always an enjoyable time.

“One of the most scenic rivers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Living in Stillwater, which is right on the river, it is easy to take for granted the lovely views from the river. Stillwater's main street is great any time of year for great shopping and good eats! If you visit when the paddleboats are running they are a must do! The price is very resonable for a great view of the river and great food.
