Near the end of travel on scenic byway Rt. 12, you will come upon this small but very good state park. A small entrance fee gives you access to a museum and actual ruins of these ancient people. A recreation of their living quarters, history...More

This place is OK. The museum has nothing striking but there's a nice snack wagon and playground nearby.

This had very interesting exhibits inside with lots of information I didn’t know about before. Outside there was a partially excavated home/village site that built on the inside information. Also a very nice gift shop.

This was a lovely stop on our trip. Not overwhelming but historically informative. There is a short self guided walking tour around ruins of an Indian village. The staff person was wonderfully helpful. The five dollar entry fee is more than reasonable and the gift...More

We really enjoyed our stop at this little park. I think the admission fee was $5 per person, which is very reasonable. This park consists of a visitor center/museum, and a short trail right behind it which showcases reconstructed dwellings. This is one of the...More
