  • This was a great national park. The movie was informative, and the staff was very informative and helpful. You are able to walk into the earth mound, which was amazing. The other mounds have to be hiked to, but the views are worth the effort of climbing the stairs. There is also a nice trail that goes around the small pond and river.

  • So many things to learn here about the aboriginal tribes that were here. "The largest archeological dig in US history"? Who knew? Right outside of Macon! The help center is jam packed with relics and reconstructions. It's an entire day adventure. Don't forget to see the burial mounds!

  • Love it here! Has always been the nicest people that work at the park my whole life. They have awesome crafts for the family and guided walks to better help you to understand more about the area and the Indians that lived there. The best part is when they have their Indian festival in the fall and they actually have native American men and women come and help celebrate. It's just something everyone should come and see at least once in their lives.

  • Very interesting, and the movie was better than expected. Nice trails and a good place for nature pics. History at your own pace. The ceremony mound is always my favorite.

  • The park speaks for itself through the excellent visitors center and staff. I was brought to the park through an organized event. I will be returning with my whole family for them to experience the park also.
