We toured the Museum compound adjacent to the State park on the north. It did include info on the archaeological digs at the park and some artifacts. The park has good walking trails, representations of the original stockade, clean restrooms and 3 picnic areas. We...More

Very much dependent on visitors expectations. Those interested in accepted history will find the site long in generality and theory, little in evidence. Educational markers decayed or vandalized. Disappointing. The average visitor will find little more than a lumpy field with restrooms and a nice...More

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.
