Murawaski said canoe/kayak rentals in the reserve have averaged about 300 a season in the past six years, with 312 rented by this mid-August. That’s about double the number rented before the creek barrier was removed, he said.

Since the creek wanders out of Anoka County, Ramsey County maintains its share of Rice Creek in Shoreview and New Brighton. The reserve rents canoes, kayaks and life jackets at Wargo Nature Center on George Watch Lake, but the craft can’t be taken from the park. Call 651-429-8007 to check watercraft availability.
