Kinnickinnic State Park is a 1,242-acre (503 ha) Wisconsin state park in which the Kinnickinnic River, locally known as Kinni River, joins the St. Croix River. The mouth of the Kinnickinnic River forms a sandy delta upon which boaters can picnic and camp.
Over 140 species of birds visit the Kinnickinnic Valley[ citation needed] during the bird migration, such as anseriformes. In the summer months the number drops to 85-90 mostly represented by pheasants and Grey partridge. In addition, there are also bald eagles in the winter months. In 1989 wild turkeys were resettled in the State Park.
The mammal wildlife that frequent Kinnickinnic State Park include various species of white-tailed deers, raccoons, American minks, red- and gray fox, Eurasian red squirrel, rabbit, weasel and North American beaver.
