Namekagon River (pronounced NAM-uh-Kah-gun) is a 95 mile long river which is a tributary to the St. Croix River. Known for camping and fishing, the Namekagon provides lake and river canoeing with some low hazard rapids. Low water is the chief obstacle; levels should be checked locally. Access is available at the towns of Trego, Earl, Springbrook, Hayward, Seeley and Cable, and road crossings. The Namekagon River offers everything from rapids for the experienced kayaker/canoeist to wide, quiet flowages below the dams. Trout fishermen can meet their challenge, and anglers will fish to their heart's content. In most places, no development has been allowed within sight of the river, providing miles of unsurpassed beauty for canoeists and hikers.
