The Paul Bunyan Logging Camp Restaurant now has a very large Paul Bunyan and Babe statue right in front, in addition to its huge sign. We saw families posing kids on Babe for photos.

On the Hwy 51 North in Minoqua is Paul Bunyan's restaurant. This restaurant features an approximately 25' Bunyan w/ Babe in the parking lot.
