St. Croix National Scenic Riverway
Traveling north on the St. Croix River, the atmosphere changes. Boat traffic subsides from motors to human-powered vessels, deep water thins to streams around islands and attention falls from the sweeping flow of the river to the scenic landscape beyond. That is what its like traveling to the Town of St. Joseph, too.
The Town of St. Joseph is an agricultural and small-acreage residential community in beautiful St. Croix County, Wisconsin. Grown from the lumber-baron years, our mixed-use districts of Houlton and Burkhardt serve a small population of less than 4,000 residents living on thirty square miles of rolling hills, hardwood forest, open prairie and wetlands. Our geographical assets include the St. Croix River, Willow River State Park, Perch Lake and Bass Lake
Residents of St. Joseph enjoy fresh air and privacy in country living. With space between us, all our homes and businesses are serviced by private well and waste systems. Many of us savor the quiet by working, playing and even vacationing at home as a lifestyle. We tinker in our pole sheds, volunteer at the parks and participate in recreational activities at and around our own backyards. Simply a lovely community, conveniently located near a full range of urban amenities.
Whether traveling automobile or by foot or bicycle on the Loop Trail's Lift Bridge, over the stunning St. Croix River Crossing, or meandering on Rustic Road 13, St. Croix Valley's best restaurants, employment, shopping and entertainment are nearby. You'll find us just twenty miles east of the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area, on the western banks of the national scenic St. Croix River. nestled between historic Stillwater, Minnesota and the charming river town of Hudson, Wisconsin.
