Depiction of a traditional lake land explorer, looks to be made of imitation wood, and he is big -- maybe 25 feet tall.

Standing tall since the nation's Bicentennial in 1976, the big fiberglass lake country explorer was made by F.A.S.T. Corp..

It took us a while to find the Voyageur statue, too. It's near the fort by the river, not in the campground.

This is definitely still there, I visited it August of 2009. It is along the river and I think north of Veterans Park. There is also a replica fort nearby.

I looked for this statue for quite some time. I was able to find veterans park, but no sign of the statue.

Doesn't look like the kind of statue that would be moved capriciously or easily destroyed. Anyone else seen the Voyageur, uh, voyaging?
