Visitor Tips and News About Swiss Trail Muffler Man
Our local muffler man has been spruced up a bit! Still missing his right arm, though.[Dan Busha, 04/07/2015]
Some good news on the Lake Vanare (or Adirondack Memories Campground) Muffler Man. After years of neglect, storms and missing body parts, this Bunyan is almost all back together again. I was pleasantly surprised on my visit to the Lake George area to find him repainted and restored near the entrance to the campground on a hillside by the road. They have cleared the area around him so he no longer is in the woods but stands at the edge of it next to half a tree that one can assume he cut down with that saw of his. His head has also been returned and reattached and he is looking much better these days. He is now just missing a foot and his right arm.[Joel Baker, 07/25/2012]
It's always good news when we hear that a Muffler Man has been re-headed.
My brother David and I have recently purchased the campground formerly known as Swiss Trail (now Adirondack Memories Campground). We have resurrected the headless Muffler Man. We call him Paul Bunyan.
We are hoping to find the head and restore him to his full glory. We would be forever grateful for any tips to the whereabouts of his head![Paul Magliato, 09/24/2010]
Good luck recovering Paul's noggin. There's something about that guy and his surroundings that encourages spontaneous dismemberment. Perhaps it's the handy saw?
The poor condition of the campsite Muffler Man in Lake Luzurne, a few miles from Lake George has further degenerated. Driving past it just three nights ago I realized that the head of the "Paul Bunyan" muffler man had been removed. The figure still stands with a "Campsite" sign propped against the tree, but he is now headless, casting a gloomy impression down upon the road as you drive by.[James LaGoy, 05/22/2004]
