This statue is pretty cool to see and well maintained- check it out if in the area! It's right in front of the Casino!

It's a giant fibreglass statue of a lumberjack. He has a very strange grin on his face. The attraction of this attraction is indeed hard to explain and I don't know that I'd have thought to visit this, left to myself, not least because it isn't quite in town and it really isn't worth more than about ten minutes.

nice to see the statute and get a picture. Just sitting there across the street from a casino but worth the 5-10 minutes to get the picture

My husband was very impressed with this Paul Bunyan as it was much better than the one in Bemedji, MN. The only thing lacking was a statue of Babe the Blue Ox.

For an "attraction" to attract, there should be something other than size. Paul Bunyan is a very large legend. This is a large statue... if you have not seen a large statue of Paul Bunyan, and want to see this one, then it is worth the side trip... maybe while driving past this, you can take a picture for yourself....

This is a must see, it helps that it's across the street from Hollywood Casino! It is located south of Downtown Bangor and very close to the riverfront.

We actually passed it and couldn't find it. It's in the front of a stadium/arena managed by a company. There's a gas station across the side street and we parked there.

Paul Bunyan is a classic American icon. This worth a quick stop and snap a few pictures and maybe a selfie. We did not want to pay for parking so we pulled in the gas station across the street. This Paul is much better than the Paul in Bemiji, MN.
