|MILL CREEK -Known by Native Americans and early fur traders as the "River of Teeth" due to the rocks.
The Mill Creek is a stream of seasonal short lived lives as many rivers located just west of the Wisconsin River are. Early spring can be very dangerous, mid-late spring is the best time to enjoy this rocky and difficult stream at times.
You may encounter the river almost 6-10ft over the normal water line. The best drop-in is at County C but there are other spots and will take 3-5hrs depending on your experience level. It is beautiful with hardwoods and several rocky rapids near the middle and end of this section. The river ends almost like it began, mellow and sluggish as it meets the Wisconsin River. By mid-summer the creek is only a trickle. There is a light (beer) at the end of the trip where you can pull-out at RUSTY'S BACKWATER. Every spring the drunken, daring and fool hearty take part in the "Brews and Canoes" outing. P.S. THEY HAVE THE BEST BLOODYMARY'S!
