We happened upon this place and boy, are we glad. It doesn't take a long time to drive through, but it changes, so we keep going back. This guy really has both talent and a desire to share. Take the time, drive through, you won't regret it.

He had done a fantastic job developing his creations with junk and he had a fantastic sense of humor with the structures.

Our 3rd or 4th visit here - a place we love to bring our guests! Many of our friends and family are art lovers and this sculpture park is a real treat to show off to them when they come to visit us at our summer home. Drive or walk through this fascinating and fanciful artist's work. Lots of room... More

My wife and I had a blast catching frogs and seeing a garter snake by the pond. We then enjoyed a cool bog walk. There is a great area to picnic. Finally, we drove through the sculpture park. Great for all ages.

We had so much fun at this sculpture park! The owner and artist is extremely talented and we enjoyed every minute in the park. The park is open 24/7 365 days and since we were on a photography trip we couldn't think of a better place to spend some time taking pictures. Take some time to go through this park... More

A great gem hidden up in the woods this man has spent years building one of the most amazing sculpture gardens I have ever seen. I promise you if you stop you'll enjoy the entire park . He deserves great recognition for all the effort put into it .

Completely surprised by this drive/walk thru park with a ton of sculptures! I can't believe it's free! We had to look for a donation box (because it's worth it) & found it close to the entrance. It's a little further out of Marquette (toward Munising) than I I expected, but so glad we went. We spent about 20-30 minutes here.

Your on a drive out to see the lake, the rocks, the falls and lighthouses and all at once your at Tom Lakenenland's : Junkyard Sculpture Park FREE roadside attraction. The 80 or so sculptures are fantastic, amazingly imaginative some are politically funny and right on the money. The picnic shelter and fireplace are beautiful. There is a nice play... More
