Champlin is a progressive suburban community situated on the banks of the Mississippi River just fifteen miles northwest of downtown Minneapolis. Although discovered in the late seventeenth century by French Explorer Father Louis Hennepin, the area was not recognized until 1859. Today, Champlin celebrates its heritage with the annual Father Hennepin Festival held in June.

Mother Nature provides much for residents and visitors to adore. Stroll alongside the Mississippi River, hike or bike through the 5,400 acre Elm Creek Park Reserve or relax in one of the City’s many parks. Recognized as a “Tree City” by the Arbor Foundation, finding the perfect shady patch shouldn’t be a problem.

In a recent survey, ninety-four percent of residents agreed that Champlin has a great quality of life. Inviting well-planned neighborhoods, abundant recreational opportunities, and exceptional healthcare facilities make for happy residents, but it’s Champlin’s added sense of community, that makes life here…simply better. Whether you’re just starting out, raising a family, or nearing retirement, Champlin offers the perfect home to suit any budget or lifestyle.
