Lakenenland: Junk Art Park

This is really remarkable. You can make a whole day of this with the kids, some fishing poles, and a picnic lunch. There is also a major cross-country hiking trail nearby, so plan the sculptures into your cross-country walk.

Lakenenland is so fun! We had to almost run through as mosquitos were relentless (late July).

If you are in the area and miss seeing Tom's sculptures, your life is simply not complete! We were fortunate enough to meet Tom Lakenen on the day we visited and what an incredible story about the evolution of his park. Be sure to see it.

Lakenenland - Offbeat Sculptures

Lakenenland is amazing, and if it doesn't truly DEFINE offbeat roadside America, then I don't know what does! Tom's sculptures are gorgeous and whimsical, an often biting commentary on the American political scene. You can hike thru, drive thru, and in the winter, snowmobile thru. It is right on one of the major snowmobile trails, and he keeps a shelter, stove, grill, and "facilities" all for the comfort of his snowmobiling pals. What a kind-hearted and talented artist!
