The mounds at Lizard Mound are remnants of a prehistoric culture unique to Wisconsin.
In 2011, Washington County constructed an Interpretive Center with signage and audio exhibits to tell the story of the site.

Lizard Mound and the Interpretive Center is available in spring, summer and fall for free to the public and other groups who want to visit. Come, explore and learn about peoples who built these monuments in Wisconsin a thousand years ago.

Note: Please stay on the trail, treat this area with respect and do not walk on the mounds. It is illegal to remove or to otherwise disturb archaeological sites on County lands without a permit.
