Spent the weekend on the St.Croix. Nice little overnighter to Loon Bay. Lots of sun and no rain (it did rain quite hard for those on the river Friday night). Water level was just over 1000 which reduced issues with rocks. Lots of groups on the water, we were away early camped at Gravel Island (just past the camp ground).
My oldest came with us for his first taste of moving water, even tho he's not a big kid it made a nice difference to have someone else do the work for a change . Pic's can be found here for the curious.
Our put in for this trip was at Vanceboro, near the train bridge just down river from the border crossing on the Canadian side. It's the put in most use for this river. There are plenty of camp sites along the river so you can stretch the run out for 2 nights in a few different ways. Many paddle down to Kellyland or grand falls flowage? Map is packed up and I don't recall the specific name. Paddling down that far get you into a lot of dead water. You can just as easily stretch a trip to Loon Bay to 2 nights by taking your time on the river and camping earler (or putting in a little later in the day). We've started in the Spendic lakes (launch at the campground) one year to stretch the trip to Loon Bay to 2 nights. Just be sure to stop in at the border patrol office before portaging you canoe and gear across bridge otherwise they'll come out and visit you... don't ask how I know
