We enjoyed the trails and beaches at Father Hennepin! A great family destination. There are a few fishing docks, too.

“Magnificent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

Truly one of the most beautiful parks in MN. I came here this summer with my wife to do some hiking. The hike starts along Lake Mille Lacs with some amazing views. It was a perfect sunny day with a nice warm breeze coming off the lake. The actual views of the lake are stunning, much like an inland sea due to the size. You can't see the other side just a dotting of islands and shoreline stretching off into the distance. The hike thru the woods yielded some mosquitos but not too bad. All in all well worth the trip and worth spending some good time at. Also the campgrounds looked great.

“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We had planned to camp at Scenic state park on our back back to Canada from Minneapolis. Our van broke down on the way, and we would have arrived to late after all the repairs were said and done. We literally looked up state parks we could get to by 10pm and this is where we landed. Are we ever lucky the van broke down.

Clearest water I've ever seen. Huge campsites, beautiful, thick woods. We only wish we had more time there!

“Beautiful Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Wow, A great place to stay instead of Hunter Winfields. You don't get screwed on the Price and the Park Rangers are very friendly. It is a jewel in the crown of Mille Lacs.
