St. Croix flows placidly through the rolling Appalachian Hills on a journey from the to the tidewaters of Chiputneticook Lakes Passamaquoddy Bay, where in 1604 Samuel de Champlain established the first European settlement in North America north of . Florida
Native peoples, Acadian settlers, British Loyalists, logs floating to mill and shipyard, canoeists, fishermen – its waters have carried them all past unbroken forest, murmuring rapids, and shimmering lakes to the craggy shores of the estuary.
St. Croix offers excellent opportunities for canoeing and camping, for lake and river fishing and boating, for river touring by families and groups, and for more skilled white-water canoeists. Paddle and fish the sparkling waters under the watchful gaze of bald eagles and ospreys - relax in the serenity of its historic towns; feel the currents and tides of history flow.
