We go to Father Hennepin State Park on a camping trip with our church. We decided to make an epic nature video from what was surrounding us for the weekend! Hope you enjoy it!

Beyond The Tent recently visited Father Hennepin State Park on Mille Lacs Lake. We had a great time and absolutely loved the campground. There are multiple play grounds, natural wooded campsites, wooded campsites with mowed grass, fishing, beaches and fantastic hiking trails.
