Father Hennepin State Park

For the long holiday weekend we made the short trek (93 miles) from Kingston, Mn over to Isle, Mn. (Father Hennepin State Park sits on the shore of Mille Lacs Lake.)

Ben(9) and Joe(7) stayed in the tent. Jacob slept in the rear bunk of the camper. Cristy and I used the front bunk of the Roo.

On Saturday we ran over to Kathio State Park (west side of Mille Lacs Lake.) The naturalist had a kids program on how to make a fishing rig out of a pop can.

Overall we had a nice weekend and enjoyed spending some time with the Christie family. The park was pretty full but relatively calm. (Lots of boats, RVs, kids on bikes, and mosquitoes.)
