The Rum River was added to Minnesota's Wild and Scenic Rivers Program in 1978. The designated stretch extends along Mille Lacs, Sherburne, Isanti and Anoka counties.
The Rum River has segments in all three "wild", "scenic", and "recreational" classifications (see: general information on river classification).
The original management plan for this stretch of the Rum River was adopted in 1978, and the current rules that govern management of state lands and local land use regulation along the river are contained in Minnesota Rules, chapter 6105.1400 – 6105.1500.
