St Croix Canoeing/Kayaking Day

Let's canoe/kayak the St Croix. The weather should be nice on this day or at least that's my forecast

 

We'll canoe down to Osceola, but people can go down as far as William O'Brien State Park and take one of two shuttles back. Reservations for the William O'Brien shuttle are required and the shuttle times are 5:40pm and 7:40pm. For more info on shuttles and to reserve a space if going down to William O'Brien please click

 

COST: $41.68 ÷ 2 = $20.84 pp. A kayak is $41.68. These are discounted rates and includes the shuttle back to Osceola, paddles and life jackets.

    A fantastic trip down a beautiful length of river! Thanks for organizing this so well, Sue!

    Although the 2nd half wasn't what we were expecting-life is an adventure :-) and I look forward to the next paddle; thanks Sue for organizing these - fun group!

  • Diane P

    Thanks for organizing Sue! A great group of people!!! Several of us went to P.D. Pappy's after, had a great time on the patio with a cover and watched in pour rain. We were all hoping that others that paddled to William O'Brian were ok. : (

    Hi Everyone, Thanks for coming out yesterday morning. Look on the calendar for the next time we hit the St Croix. Found out when I paid that we got one free boat yesterda. Since there were two kayak rentals they only had to pay what the rest of us paid for sharing a canoe. (I owe Jeremy money, as he paid full price.) As for the rest of the money that people over paid, I'm applying that to the cost of running this group. We are all out of sponsorship money so the cost comes out of my pocket. Thank you all for your donation to keep this group running. We have a great group with lots of fun people and I've made many new friends here. OK I'll shut up now. :-)

    Oh it was awesome getting poured on. We did a little breaking and entering with no lock on a screen porch. Please note Traci does not like lightning or snakes especially at the same time. We are dry now enjoying wine on a dry porch at Marine on st. Croix.

    Whew! I think we were pretty smart getting out at Osceola! Started to pour about half an hour after leaving the park. Traci, hope the rest of you were safe heading down to William O'Brien.

    As stated in the event notice, please meet at the canoe rental area inside the park and down by the water. If you need to get your State Park sticker they can give you precise directions. I will be at the rental shack looking like I'm looking for people and there may be a large group near me.

    Is anyone else planning on fishing the way down?

    • A former member

      And if you are fishing, I recommend light tackle for
      small mouth bass and walleyes. Beetle-spinners with a white grub used to do the trick.

      Either or, it is border waters. Unless you are on land. Then you need the license of the land you are standing on.

  • julie

    Does anyone have any room in their car to shuttle a body (without watercraft) back to Interstate Park from Osceola?

    June 12, 2013

  • Sue

    I'll make the reservations for the number of canoes. If you are bringing your own canoe/kayak please contact the canoe company to make a reservation for the shuttle. I plan on going to Osceola, but if someone wants to go further to William O'Brien State Park please let me know.

    June 5, 2013
