Shetek State Park

Our last camping trip took us to Shetek State Park here in Minnesota. It was a very hot and humid weekend so Renner and GrandGreyhound Ruby spent most of the time inside the air conditioned camper.

One way to cool off was with water gun fights!

Someone is looking a little wet!

There was also biking and hiking.

And lounging mid-hike, since the weather was quite warm.

Ruby in the upper corner, Renner lower middle.

Little guy kickin’ it with his hound, Ruby.

Needless to say the hounds were glad to get back and lay in the shade that our awning provided.

We also did some geo-caching, which is using GPS to find little treasures that are hidden ‘someplace’….once you happen upon a treasure box you take a treasure and also leave a little treasure of your own for the next person to find.

There were other things we did while at Shetek State Park like visit a railroad museum and the Koch cabin.


Renner: Yep, we all had a good time but there is no place like home. Ahhh…my favorite bed in the coolness of my own kitchen. :)


  1. OMG these pictures are just so fun. And the 4th one is priceless. What a fun time had by all :) Thanks for sharing. :)

  2. Looks like a fun trip, but I agree with Renner. There's no place like home!

  3. It looks like such a great trip! We've taken the girls hiking, but no camping so far! One of these days, maybe. They definitely feel like Renner, though!

  4. Another way to cool off is vodka-filled waterguns, which pretty much excludes kids and dogs, but what kind of vaction would that be?! Skip my idea; have a great vacation your way!


  5. Much fun was enjoyed by all - and arriving home is the perfect ending :-)

  6. We love camping, too! It looks like you had a wonderful time!

  7. the boy is having fun.
    very cool water gun fights...
