“Very unique State Park”
Reviewed 7 February 2013

This park has a great history of the Mississippian People with its burial mounds and pyramid mound. There is also a number of old building and a museum just outside of the park. It is a great place to walk around and see the historical information exhibits.

“Interesting and easy to complete in a half day”
Reviewed 24 December 2012

We were interested in finding our more about the mound building culture of Wisconsin. We were able to complete a walk through Aztalan in a couple of hours. We found it informative, with good supplemental I formation to help support understanding of what you are viewing. We were glad we took the time to walk through Aztalan.

“Indian Mounds with beautiful hiking trails and picnic spots”
Reviewed 23 December 2012

If you're in the area, you must stop and see Aztalan State Park. It's a wonderful spot to picnic, right on the river, with the historic Indian Mounds to explore. There are several hiking trails (many new) that make it a worthwhile stop anytime of year.

“Mediocre interpretation”
Reviewed 7 December 2012

This is a disappointment for anyone really interested in archaeology. I would not get off the Interstate to see this one. Instead exit earlier and visit Old World Wisconsin--an amazing site built of transferred historic buildings for the nation's bicentennial. The tours are terrific as is the restaurant.

“Good for walking”
Reviewed 5 December 2012

Okay to walk around in or lounge for a tan, but nothing you need to drive out of the way for. No beach, either.
