Lake Mills - Aztalan State Park

1213 S Main St

Aztalan State Park is a National Historic Landmark and contains one of Wisconsin's most important  archaeological sites. It showcases an ancient Middle-Mississippian village that thrived between A.D. 1000 and 1300. The people who settled Aztalan built large, flat-topped pyramidal mounds and a stockade around their village. Portions of the stockade and two mounds have been reconstructed in the park.

  • Aztalan State Park is open year-round from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
  • The Aztalan Museum [exit DNR], operated by the Lake Mills-Aztalan Historical Society, Inc., is just north of the park and includes displays, two pioneer church buildings and other structures from the 19th century.

Small but interesting be place to walk around. The kids (ages 10, 9 & 7) loved running along the paths and up and over the mounds.

It's really cool, you get to explore the outdoors and walk through forts and walk along the river

One of the many State treasures so close to Madison and Milwaukee. Living History so close to so many.

We didn't get to explore as much as we wanted because my daughter got sick. What we did see was pretty cool. We stopped at the Visitor's Center, which is temporarily in a trailer. The volunteer was very enthusiastic an knowledgeable. The video was very good. It is fairly easy to get to the reconstructed village. I wish the signage was a little better, but it wasn't bad.

One of the smaller state parks. Not as built up as some. But, that makes for a more peaceful hiking experience. Be sure to read the signs about the areas history.
