River Levels

This list includes real-time river level gauges along all of Minnesota's state water trails. The gauges have been interpreted for paddling on a scale ranging from "scrapable" (so low that paddlers may have to get out of their watercraft to avoid rocks); to "very high" (where paddling is considered dangerous and not recommended).

Search for gauges by using the "Search" bar above the list. Click the "Site Name" to view more details including river level graphs, full gauge interpretations, and a link to view the gauge on a map.

To access river gauges in a map view, visit the State Water Trails Interactive Map and click "Show" River Gauges in the legend.

Disclaimer: River levels are subject to rapid change based on precipitation and other factors. It's best to keep a close eye on river levels as the date of your planned trip approaches.
