The Rum River is Part of the Iron Range Audio Tour

Rum River Minnesota Tourism Information

The Rum River, designated as a “wild and scenic river” by the DNR, begins in Lake Mille Lacs and ends at the Mississippi River in Anoka, MN. The Rum River was an often used route for travel among the Native Americans, and the upper valley of the Rum River contains some of the highest concentration of artifacts in the state, some as old as 3,000 years. The river has been called the Rum as far back as 1776, but the name has been seen as distasteful and over the years has been changed to the Anoka, the Temperance, the St. Francis and the Volstad in honor of the Minnesota legislator who introduced the bill that brought prohibition to the United States. Some things to see and do along the Rum River include visiting any of the three sections of the Rum River State Forest, canoeing, kayaking, fishing and white water rafting.
