On our way down through to the Madison area, little lady and I decided to take a visit to Aztalan State Park in Lake Mills, Wisconsin. It was the perfect spot to quick stretch our legs through this Wisconsin State Park.
It’s crazy to think over 1,000 years ago this was a popular place for Native Americans, and we had the chance to walk the three platform mounds that still stand today. You can read more about this place on the Friends of Aztalan State Park’s website here.
Parking was very easy to find, we went on a beautiful summer afternoon during the week. The mowed trails offered such an easy path to trek through, making it much more enjoyable when you have to cart around a 20 pound cutie. I always recommend having your car packed and ready for these types of summer hikes. If you’d like to see more of what we pack and how we dress for our hikes together as a family, definitely check out this link (arriving soon).
For any of those history buffs, they have numerous signage that offers detailed information about the long history this place tells.
The reconstructed stockades near the Crawfish River were our favorite part of the adventure. We’ll definitely be back if that river lives up to it’s actual name. Crawfish hunting is something I haven’t done since I was a kid.
