Nothing but a small house. Not much to look at but a decent walking trail. There is a buried Halloween skeleton to dig up. Only gets about 4 visitors a day.

The park is small but it does have a hiking trail down to the Oconto River where you can fish from the bank. It is a very important historical site encompassing 7500 year old original people history, an old Belgian 100 year plus farmstead, to...More

This State park site has been a topic of great debate on many television programs. It isn't exactly clear how long ago the Copper Culture Tribe inhabited this location but many speculate that they first lived here up to 9000 years ago. What is certain...More

Actually a really nice history here, but the park itself isn't much. A small museum and a picnic shelter (wedding there they day we were there). There's a nice hiking trail to the river that has some markers about the historical significance of the area...More

This burial site is over 7,500 years old. Located right on the edge of town it is a quiet and moving experience to envision what the area was like for the inhabitants so very long ago. There is a stone grave marker designating where a...More

Went there on our motorcycles for a break. We were the only ones there for most of the time. It is very peaceful and well maintained.

We arrived at opening time of 11am and the museum was closed up tight. About 11:15 the docent arrived to open it and set off the alarm which brought an officer. An exciting beginning to our visit. It is a small museum which offers insight...More

I took the kids here to check it out. It was basically a parking lot, a field with a sign in it, and a pavillion. Not much, or anything, to do here. The kids were confused as to why I brought them to this place.

We live in the area and love taking our dog on walks to Copper Culture Park. We see a variety of wildlife every time we venture to the park, which intrigues our kids, as well as our canine family member! The museum, while small and...More
