On Hoinville Lake you can venture out on row boats or kayaks, or if you’re interested in exploring further, we offer Namekagon River Canoe/Kayak Trips or River Tubing Trips. These give you the opportunity to leisurely float down river and be picked up and brought back to Heartwood Resort. These excursions are offered four times per day. For the river trips, we drop off at the Whispering Pines Landing and pickup at the Howell Canoe Landing. The Namekagon River is a 99.5-mile long river that is a northern tributary to the St. Croix River. It is protected under the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway. Therefore, most of the river is undeveloped and home to abundant deer, muskrat, beaver, turtles and blue herons, eagles and ospreys.
