It’s not every day that a new state park is created. Lizard Mound State Park (POTA K-9704) in Southeastern Wisconsin was added to the list of Wisconsin State Parks in the Spring of 2022 and made available as a Parks on the Air entity in August, 2022. I explore the rich history of this small park and get it on the air.

I do return QSL, if you made a contact with me and would like a QSL, please send me one. Return postage not necessary, but always appreciated. As they say, KB9VBR is ‘good in the book.’
