Champlin is a city in Hennepin County, Minnesota. The population was 23,089 at the 2010 census.
The settlement of the Champlin area began when Father Louis Hennepin, a Franciscan priest from whom Hennepin County, Minnesota gets its name, Michael Accult and Peter Dulay were captured by the Sioux Indians. An Indian trading post was eventually established in the area. Charles Miles created the first permanent settlement in what came to be called the Marshall Township. In 1859, it was split into six towns, Champlin and Dayton. The name Champlin came from the family name of U.S. Navy Commodore Stephen Champlin.
Champlin is home to many industrial based businesses. The recent completion and addition to the 610 by pass project has allowed the area to expand and accommodate the growing population of the area.
