Autumn on the St. Croix River

Wild and Scenic

Did you know the St. Croix River is a National Wild and Scenic Rivers System? Less than 1/4 of 1% of rivers are protected as National Wild & Scenic Rivers and can be considered some of the most beautiful, valuable and unspoiled environments left in the U.S.


Tree City

The City of Hudson is an official Tree City and has received the Honor of Tree City USA each year since 2010. Tree City USA is a national program that provides communities around the country with a framework for managing their tree resources.


Bird City

Hudson is also a "Bird City Wisconsin," which means we enhance the environment for birds and educate the public about the interactions between birds and people. Visit and see a wide variety of birds, including bald eagles, warblers, pelicans, and trumpeter swans.



Whether you paddle, sail, or cruise, Hudson is for you. The St. Croix Sailing Club promotes sailing activities for all family members. St. Croix River Cruises offers tours throughout the season. And Homestead Parklands on Perch Lake provides canoe, kayak, SUP, and paddleboat rentals!
