Enjoy the River Safely · Wear your life jacket. Make sure your child wears a life jacket! · Use alcohol responsibly. Many river accidents involve alcohol. · Wear sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat to prevent sunburn. Water reflects the rays of the sun giving you a double dose of ultraviolet light. · Avoid trees that have fallen in the river. They can catch and overturn your vessel. · Don't jump from cliffs, bridges, or trees. · Protect your feet with river shoes, water sandals, or old shoes. Fish hooks, glass, and rocks can injure your feet. · Bring your own drinking water. Treat river water before drinking to avoid giardia, a serious stomach irritant. · Blastomycosis is a fungal infection that is commonly contracted by dogs and sometimes by humans. Avoid digging in moist soils. · Check for ticks often and know the symptoms of Lyme disease. Deer ticks are common along the Riverway and some carry the bacteria that cause the disease. · Know how to identify poison ivy and avoid contact.

Gordon Dam marks the northern boundary of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway. This upper section of the St. Croix River is very remote, with few, mostly unpaved roads. If you camp along this section of river keep your ears open at night--you may hear wolves howling. Several wolf packs live along or near the upper St. Croix. They are here because there is an abundance of food, water, shelter, and space. While wolves are keystone predators at the top of the food chain, campers and canoers are not on their menu. They prefer white-tailed deer and beaver for their meals.

Discover clean water, lush landscapes, and quiet solitude along the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway, a national park that with your help protects 255 miles of wild and scenic river corridor.
