Geography

The main attraction in the area is the Serpent Mounds Campgrounds and Historical Site. It has an effigy mound in the shape of a snake, constructed as an earthwork nearly 2,000 years ago by indigenous peoples of the Hopewell culture. Formerly a Provincial Park, the government returned the site to the Hiawatha First Nation as a historically significant burial ground for the Native people.

In addition to the mounds and campgrounds, the park also has a groomed beach for swimming and several kilometers of walking and biking trails. Another popular pastime in the area is fishing. Rice Lake is known to many as a great spot for some boating and fishing. There are also several resorts with water access points.
