Cheeseheads keen on celebrating National Parks & Recreation Month need to look no further than the region’s many lakes and rivers.
The Apostle Islands National Lakeshore is more than an archipelago in the midst of Lake Superior. The landscape, boasting 21 different destinations, is rich with Ojibwe culture. Lighthouses abound, as do pristine places to paddle – via kayak or canoe (deriving from the Carib word “kenu”).
Located at the confluence of the St. Croix and Namekagon rivers, the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway includes 200 miles of fresh water flowing through the forested landscape – perfect for paddling, fishing, hiking and camping.
