Our adventure begins at Loon Bay Lodge on the St. Croix near St. Stephen
New Brunswick. Built over 55 years ago in the tradition of the Great
Camps of the North Country, Loon Bay provides the perfect setting to
begin our journey. After a great breakfast we are off to the put in.
After a brief orientation and instruction we pull away from shore and
settle into the gentle pace of the river.
We will make camp at a scenic secluded sights at rivers edge. Over the
next two days we will become fully immersed in the wonderful isolation
of the St. Croix. Mornings find some of us up early enjoying the solitude
and the mist rising off the water, while others curl up deeper in their
bags waiting for their first cup of coffee. Rapids like Elbow Rips,
Mile Rips, and Rocky Rapids fill our days with excitement. In between
the quickwater sections we can slow down and wander through English
Cove and other quiet sections where we can take the time to fully appreciate
our surroundings. The St. Croix provides the perfect playground for
novices wishing to learn, or for those simply seeking a relaxed and
tranquil river sojourn.
Our journey ends as it began at Loon Bay Lodge. We are enchanted by
the lodge and our warm and rustic surroundings. During our final dinner
we reminisce about our adventure together and look forward to the next
