Friends introduced us to this well kept park. We hope to stop back again and also check out the museum nearby.

The location along the Crawfish River in Jefferson County WI has fortunately been preserved to protect the archeological earthworks. There are platform mounds and conical mounds at this site. There is evidence that is related to the Cahokia site.

Beautiful park and grounds. Museum somewhat disorganized, and there are items here that have little to do with the Native American history. A volunteer told me that documentation for many of the items had been lost over the years. There are plans to build an...More

The park is quite large, with some real history. Indian Mounds and a Indian settlement to learn about. There are park rangers there sometimes and a small history museum with some very knowledgeable staff. The only thing to remember is that if you park there...More
