Like all the other photo op statues. Do it if you are there. Great view of Long Lake, Very large so stand close to show the perspective. Loon's are quite an interesting bird so do some research.

The kids always enjoy the stop to see the giant loon. Easy to see right off the highway next to Loon Lake.

If you are into this sort of thing, stop. Take a quick picture, and perhaps enjoy the beach. If you aren't into big statues, keep driving. You will find this on the north end of Long Lake.

Go loony and make it a photo op! Vergas has the largest loon, Minnesota's state bird. Playground in the park, picnic shelter there too. Pretty views!

Every city has their "thing" and the loon in Vergas is no exception. Nestled by the lake in a nice park and beach area.

Nice, small lakeside park to take a break and relax. You have to look for it or you may miss it, but worth a stop.

Minnesota is the home of large statues in small towns. the loon is the state bird. Another place to take a picture.
