15 in our group did tent camping in the park. We doubled up with two tents per site. It seemed like a long distance from the park entrance back to the campground. If you are visiting Lake Mille Lacs, this is a nice place to...More

This is a great park for hiking and fishing. While I was only there to do the former, it is easy to see that this place would be great for a nice day on or by the water. I was only in the park briefly...More
