camping

Father Hennepin State Park is located on the southeast shore of Mille Lacs Lake. Visitors enjoy a large sandy beach for swimming, two boat accesses, fishing piers and picnic sites with a panoramic view of the lake. The park's 320 acres include two campgrounds and hiking trails that wind through a hardwood forest and along the rocky shoreline of Mille Lacs. The park's original vegetation was northern hardwoods mixed with marsh areas and pines along the lake. The hardwoods provide shade during the summer and spectacular color in the fall.

      Terrific. Yes, your dogs are welcome. I want to be there by 5, but will probably be later. I'm in site 100, don't want to pitch a tent in the dark!

    This is obviously last minute, but this trip might be just what I need right now (stressful divorce - need a break!) However, does the park, and would you allow me to bring my dog? She's quite calm and very well trained (a therapy dog, in fact). But if you don't like dogs, she's still a dog. Let me know. I also wouldn't be able to be there by 4:00. I teach until 3:00 on Friday, but I'd do my best to be there as soon as possible.

    How does everyone feel about a 2 year old joining us? I'm interested in attending the Father Hennepin trip, but I haven't seen any kids in the group photos - so I'd like to check with you all first.
