  • It is a statue of folk hero Paul Bunyan. The story is he was a lumberjack who worked hard. A very big guy. Not much to see, but a real large statue of this guy. It's free, but there is nothing else to...  more »
  • This place was a good place to get a family photo it is neat to see but the parking is not ideal. Just a statue but so much more when making memories.  more »
  • Just at the roadside. If its your thing I guess you can have your picture taken with Paul. I would not make a specific stop to see it.  more »

  • Very nice location at the right time of day. Great for a picture.
  • Pretty cool. Not a lot of parking anywhere near this
  • Cool photo op if you're in the area
  • I thought it was kind of a cool quirky landmark, it kind of fits Bangor.
  • This enormous, creepy statue is surprisingly well hidden. We drove past it three times without even noticing it. Which seems crazy once we finally had it pointed out to us. The statue is hidden behind trees and the corner of a building. What is meant to be charming and campy is vaguely terrifying. If you're on the roof of the casino parking lot, you can get a good view of this weird giant man with too many teeth. There is no Babe the Blue Ox to accompany Paul. Find raising efforts have stalled, over the years, we were told by a local guide. So what you're left with is this big butch lumberjack which I assume the homosexual Bangor residents worship as a homoerotic icon. All Bangor gay pride parades should start or end here.
