  The Nelson's Landing to Snake River Confluence sector is a nice 8-mile-long class I-II run of whitewater on St. Croix River. The Nelson's Landing to Snake River Confluence sector of St. Croix River is well suited for whitewater paddlers who haven't been whitewater rafting and kayaking for so long. The below Big Eddy to St. Croix River segment has a distance of 5 miles; you discover this sweep of whitewater on Kettle River. It's a grade I-II sweep. If by chance you are an experienced whitewater paddler, you should probably seek a different sweep of whitewater
    than this sweep of Kettle River to run. Of course, kayak paddling is amusing but risky; check restrictions prior to departure. The Minnesota-Wisconsin Boundary State Trail is a glorious hiking trail in the neighborhood of Governor Knowles State Forest; you'll possibly meet some
people from Grantsburg here. Clayton Lake Dam is not far at all from Governor Knowles State Forest. A great spot to camp here at Governor Knowles State Forest is Old Logging Trail Campground.
