|Just got back from 3 days at Father Hennepin. If it's hiking you're looking for, this is not the park for you. I covered the entire park my first afternoon. Much better hiking can be found at nearby Mille Lacs Kathio State Park, about 5-8 miles away. That being said, the park is well cared for, has a good beach if lake swimming is your thing, sand volleyball, swings and such, fishing pier and 2 boat launches. In my opinion, this is place is mostly for families with kids, which I am not, so it wasn't my favorite. But if you're looking for a manageable state park with things to keep the kids from screaming, this could fit for you.
I stayed at Maple Grove campground. It's a bit more rustic than Lakeview, with reminded me of a field with RVs strewn about. I'm a tent camper and enjoy more privacy. Maple Grove sites offer some privacy, but there's not much understory to speak of so you can see and hear your neighbors pretty easily. All-in-all, this park is fine, but not one I would visit again. |
