Beginning its 164 mile journey southward, the St. Croix River flows from Upper St. Croix Lake about 20 miles south of Lake Superior. Here in the northwest corner of Wisconsin, the St. Croix and Namekagon rivers create miles of beautiful valley scenery, sections of steep walled gorges and plenty of recreation sites. The majority of this Wild and Scenic River is protected by the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway. The lower St. Croix River, marking the border between Wisconsin and Montana, is surrounded by five state parks, three national forests and two wildlife refuges.
