The Rum River flows south from Lake Mille Lacs 145 miles to its confluence with the Mississippi river in the city of Anoka.

Enjoy smallmouth bass along the river and northern pike near the headwaters as you relax in your canoe or near your campsite.

The Rum is designated as a wild and scenic river.

Water levels are usually sufficient for canoeing, with Class I to Class II rapids throughout the summer. About rapids classes.
