  • These fun and quirky rock gardens are definitely worth the trip! Note that they seem to be accessible by boat only, they have a large public dock on Kabetogema. Built by some fellow named Ellsworth who was really into rocks and art, the gardens took numerous years to build and feature an interesting array of animals and other strange creations made from rocks mortared together. The path through the gardens can be a bit confusing at times, but overall the experience is unique.
  • So peaceful and beautiful views of not only the lake but the rocks that Mr. Ellsworth put so much of his life into. Left me with my jaw open.
