Join us for a camping trip to
Father Hennepin State Park June 27-29. The park is located on the southeast corner of Mille Lacs Lake. It has a sandy swimming beach, a scenic overlook, interpretive hiking trails, fishing piers, docks and a fish cleaning shelter. The park is also home to several albino deer, beaver, and mink. Bald Eagles also can be seen in the park. Mille Lacs Lake has walleye, northerns, bluegills and sunfish. We will be in group campsite 6. It is a short walk from the parking area. We are 'supposed' to only have 6 tents so people may have to share if more then 6 people camp. On Saturday the park will have two presentations about the states history. Click
here for more information on these presentations. The cost will be $25, based on 6 people, if more then 6 attend refunds will be given at the park. Brett

    This was a great trip. The other people were great company. Thank you for the kind words, it's good to know the camping trips are appreciated.

    The book was Mental Floss: Scatterbrained.

    If you can't find that one, you can't go wrong with any of the Mental Floss books (or the magazine).

    Great place. The camp sites are private and large enough for everyone to have their own space. Very nice sand beach!

    The state park rule is:

    Pets are welcome in state parks but must be kept on a leash of not more than six feet and must be personally attended at all times.

    Personally, I would like it if you did but can only speak for myself.

    Andy, I'm leaving early Friday if your plans change to where you could leave that early.

    Donald, I have an extra tent if you would like to borrow it.
