Had a wonderful time walking around the sculpture park with my husband and 3 year old son. Unique and fantastic. Tons of great photo ops!

Not to be missed! Totally unique experience. Mr. Lakenen is giving back to the community in a very fine way and setting a fine example to the residents of the Upper Peninsula. Every year, Lakenenland has expanded it's offerings. Can't wait to see what 2015 will bring.

This was one of highlights on our 3000+ mile trek from Georgia to Maine, Vermont, Minnesota, Missouri and all the states between. Such a delightful hidden treasure.

I will be generous and give it an average rating. It is not really artistic sculpture park, but more of a hodgepodge of things that may make an adult think are the products of someone learning to use a blowtorch and welder. On the other hand, kids should get a kick out of the drive around the mini-park as they... More

Located a few miles east of the Ojibwa Casino outside Marquette on the south side of the state highway on the way to Munising. You can park and walk or drive through the collection of at least 40 welded art. Located on the main snow mobile trail as well. Free.

We were told to visit this park by our B&B hosts and decided to check it out. We'd passed it many times and thought it looked odd, but decided to give it a chance. We ended up LOVING IT! The sculptures were great and really showed the artist's creativity. Some of them made us laugh and others we thought were... More

The person behind this is quite amazing. Not only did he create all the sculptures from "junk", but he made the space where they are displayed available 24/7, with no admission charge. You can either drive or walk the paths where the sculptures are located; it would seem that driving is the best way to go, unless you have a... More
