The St. Croix River is one of the cleanest and healthiest river systems in the United States. It flows through some of the most scenic and undeveloped country in the Midwest, which makes it a favorite recreational river for young and old alike.
Be sure to watch for wildlife along your float. Thousands of birds migrate up and down the river every year using the backwaters for shelter and feeding. Keep an eye out for beaver, otters, white-tailed deer and even bald eagles during your canoe or kayaking trip.
Conveniently located approximately one hour from the Twin Cities, Taylors Falls Canoe and Kayak Rental is prepared to outfit you and your family/group with the equipment you will need to enjoy a wonderful day in the Minnesota great outdoors.
Our most popular trips vary in length from two to seven hours starting in Minnesota Interstate State Park in Taylors Falls and continue downstream on the St. Croix to either the Osceola Landing or William O'Brien State Park. Local one-way canoe or kayak rentals are available 7 days a week.
