Riverway Camping

Jack's Canoe Rental

National Park Service (NPS) shoreline campsites are primitive, and only accommodate tent camping. State and private campgrounds in the area offer vehicle camping and more facilities. Motels, cabins and resorts are also located in the vicinity of the Riverway.

NPS campsites are mainly accessible by water; there are a few sites accessible by parking the vehicle and carrying equipment in. Upstream of the hydroelectric dam (St. Croix Falls/Taylors Falls), camping is permitted only in designated sites.

A three night-per- site limit is enforced. A time limit of seven nights per site exists downstream of the hydroelectric dam, where there are camping zones.
