All of these structures exhibit exceptional engineering skills, detailed information of materials and working by a mobilized force. A visit to Macon certainly requires you to pay a visit to this stunning site.

Ocmulgee National Monument, Macon Reviews
A great example of our nation's park system. With approximately five miles of trails to walk and additional trails soon to be added there's quite a lot to see. The great temple mound sports an amazing veiw of Macon you can't get anywhere else in the city. Park rangers and staff are very friendly and helpful. Dog walkers friendly provided they follow leash laws. There's a small set of trails for bikes to ride as well. Best of all admission is free, leaving your wallet ready for the museum store on site.
This place is truly a national treasure for all to enjoy. My family attended the annual Ocmulgee Indian celebration. If you don't visit any other time, come in September when this festival is held. (and try some "fry bread" while you are there). You can also visit the Indian mounds in their historical splendor!
It was fun. The trails are really long. I recommend cold water while you walk. There is also a gift shop with reasonable prices.
Always, always always great coming here when the Nations return to one of their home areas! Great stories, dances, activities and souvenirs. I make it my mission to come each year to learn and pay tribute to my ancestors
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.
