The Aztalan State Park holds one of the most significant archaeological locations in Wisconsin. Here, you will find the remnants of the early settlements of Middle-Mississippian villagers which date back to AD1000-1300. Archaeology experts agree that this ancient community had a similar culture and tradition with Cahokia, a bigger Middle-Mississippian settlement discovered in Illinois.

Inside the park, you will see what seem to be the remains of flat pyramid-like mounds where the ancient peoples build their houses and fortifications that used to surround the village. Some of which have been recreated. This includes 2 mounds and parts of the village wall.

The 172-acre Aztalan State Park is mostly grassland and 38 acres of which is covered with oak wood. Here, visitors can enjoy picnics, canoeing, boat rides and fishing at the nearby Crawfish River. The Aztalan Museum is located north of the park.
