1. Aztalan State Park, Aztalan
This state park located in Southeast Wisconsin is home to the ruins and excavation sites of an ancient Native American tribe who abandoned the town around 1200 AD. The mounds and stockades located near the Crawfish river give an idea of how the ancient Native Americans lived.
Shelters at Aztalan State Park can be reserved near the park, however camping is not permitted, as Aztalan is strictly a day park only (open from 6AM-10PM). The entrance to the park is located right off Highway Q, not too far from the interstate that connects Milwaukee with Madison.
Aztalan State Park also allows visitors to kayak, canoe, and fish on the Crawfish river. The park’s hiking trails through Wisconsin’s prairie land are quite beautiful.
