Here’s a nice video of paddling around William O’Brien State Park earlier this fall:

From creators DogWolf and CrystalDove: “An absolutely beautiful day of kayaking on the St Croix River. Starting at William O’Brien State Park, working our way upstream, then cutting across to the Wisconsin side of the river and working our way up one of the many backwaters of the St Croix.

“This route is rarely open this time of year, but extreme rains up North has filled the river to spring levels.”
