Atlas Obscura Tom’s Logging Camp

Since opening its doors in 1956, little has changed inside Tom’s Logging Camp. The camp offers an insight into the early 20th-century logging of the region. A true relic, the camp also represents the peak of roadside attraction fervor that once swept across the midwest.

Upon entering, visitors are greeted by a 10-foot-tall Paul Bunyan cutout. Along a short path through the woods are various barns, sheds, and shacks, many of which display fun plaster figures in recreated settings from the period.
