I miss the original Paul Bunyan land in downtown Brainerd, that my parents used to take me to as a kid. I couldn't wait to go year after year. It was a fun, family park, unique to Minnesota. It now looks like a small county fair that has a campground on it. (Is that where the park runners live? ie.... More

Spent 1-1/2 hours here with our 8 and 10 year old grandkids. They absolutely loved it! Their favorite was the rock climbing wall. The rides were well staffed and ran pretty continuously on a beautiful Friday afternoon. There were no lines so they rode lots of rides multiple times. The kids were very impressed that Paul Bunyan greeted them by... More

My 3-year-old son absolutely adored this place; it was a county fair, a petting zoo, a museum, an old-fashioned town, and a chance to see the famous Paul Bunyan & Babe all rolled into one! I know some people have commented that they thought it was expensive, but we felt like it was a great value. (We can drop $18... More

This was a big disappointment and not worth the nearly $20 per person admission fee. The rides are rickety and poorly staffed, had to ask multiple staff before we found someone to run the carousel for my two year old nephew, the train also. Babe the blue ox in the parking lot is neat and a good photo op. If... More

We visited Paul Bunyan land for the second time this June. Not a park for older kids but fun and entertaining for younger ones -- ages 10 and under. Paul Bunyan greets the kids by name when you first enter and from there, the kids can climb on the climbing wall, ride a small train, get on the bumper cars,... More

We spent the day with our son and family at the park. The price was $17.95 for each with a $2 discount for seniors. It was a bit pricey for 6 but the rides and Old Farm is included in the price. The huge statue of Paul Bunyan greets you after you enter--he talks to all and even knows the... More

My young family of four spent nearly $80 to enter a run down carnival. The entry was great and looked well taken care of...however as soon as we got passed the giant Paul Bunyan we soon realized that was where the fun ended. The rides were dirty, rusted and needed repair. The grounds looked like it needed a good lawn... More

The rides were free with the entrance fee (a bit expensive for a whole family) There is this old farm area with old buildings and antiques.
