    There is a small but good information center where you can get information about Garrison and the Mille Lac Area, located at Garrison Concourse. The lady working there when I visited was very nice and knowledgable about the area.

    When I visited the Garrison Concourse was undergoing restoration. It was built by the CCC between 1936 and 1939 using the "National Park Rustic" style of architecture. It's purpose was to enhance the experience of driving along Mille Lac, the biggest lake in the area. It was listed on the "10 Most Enndangered Historic Places in Minnesota" prior to the restoration. A sign said it is "eligible" for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.

    The Big Fish

    According to the sign, this Walleye was caught by Paul Bunyan after a three day fight. Could just be a "Big Fish" Story. The fillet from this thing would feed a decent sized VT Meet.
