Wild River is located along 18 miles of
the beautiful St. Croix River. The park attracts people who enjoy
camping, hiking, horseback riding, canoeing, interpretive programs,
self-guided trails, and cross-country skiing. Day visitors can enjoy a
leisurely paddle down the St. Croix River from the Sunrise river access
to the southern park river access. The park provides opportunities for
semi-modern camping, group camping, backpack camping, canoe camping,
and walk-in camping. Visitors who want modern amenities can reserve the
guest house which provides a living room, dining room, kitchen, and
fireplace. The park also has two camping cabins which include bunkbeds,
a table, and benches. An all-season trail center is a great spot to
relax after hiking or cross-country skiing on the 35-mile trail system.
A visitor center with exhibits and environmental education programs is
camping with no showers. Picket lines available. For reservations
contact the state park reservation service by phone or online. Some
sites kept available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Trail runs through a variety of landscapes.
