As most people know, this is the state where all the women are strong and the men are good-looking. I won't go so far as to confirm that the children are above average.

ShereKhan: In St Cloud the Mississippi is about 150-200 yards wide north of the dam, and about 30-40 deep. Downriver from the dam its 5-20 feet deep and 100 yards wide until you get to the Coon Rapids dam about 60 miles down river. It becomes Navigable in Minneapolis with minimum depths of 9 feet for barges, but in St Paul it starts moving very fast.

///Floated on a tube from Little Falls to St Cloud
////Canoed from St Cloud to Coon Rapids

That sounds like a whole lot of "not fun" to swim in. MS or not.
