Copper Culture State Park

Mill Street, Oconto, WI


The 42-acre Copper Culture State Park is on the north side of the Oconto River on the west side of the City of Oconto. It was the site of a prehistoric cemetery of the Old Copper Complex people who occupied the northern Midwest about 2500 B.C.

The park has a picnic area, ball diamond, grass, brush, and a few groves of trees. A road leads to a plaque describing the prehistoric importance of the property. The park is for day use only.

An independently-operated museum in an old farmhouse details the life of the Copper Complex. The museum is open from from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend.
