Serpent Mounds Park is a family campground and day-use area that is owned and operated by Hiawatha First Nation. The land was leased to the Ministry of Natural Resources in 1955 and used as a provincial park. In 1995, Hiawatha First Nation assumed management of the park. Serpent Mounds Park is special to the people of Hiawatha First Nation. On a high point of land near Rice Lake are nine burial mounds that enclose the graves of the Point Peninsula people. Of significant interest is the largest mound which has a zigzag or serpentine appearance. It is the only one of its kind in Canada. In 2002, Serpent Mounds Park was officially designated a National Historic Site of Canada.
