Etowah Indian Mounds Historic Site Reviews & Ratings
This is one of Georgia's hidden treasures. I have been here twice and each time there's something new I discover. Definitely start with the museum inside and get to see the artifacts found at the site and others from the southeastern area of the states. After seeing the museum walk out to see a recreation of one of the huts the natives use to build. We were there on a hot summer day and it was remarkably cool inside. There is a good bit of walking so have water and good walking shoes. If you have time and energy I'd start with the smallest mound which is the furthest walk down the walkway. You pass the largest and the medium sized one before you get to the tallest. The property is very well kept and you get some awesome views of the area.
I found this place by accident on my way to another attraction and wound up spending half my day here. The gentleman at the front counter was super friendly and helpful and even suggested other attractions to enhance my experience. I was impressed by the great knowledge inside the small museum part and wandering around the grounds was beautiful and a great place to connect with the earth.
One of my favorite places! Very informative. Up on top of the mounds is so serene as is sitting by the river.
Me and my family really enjoyed this place. Staff is super friendly. We enjoyed learning the history of this place. We came on a whim while camping on Allatoona lake for Father’s Day. Glad we did!
Very evocative spot with the river running along the boundary; almost deserted. Nice interpretive center. I was there conducting research for a novel, but very much worth the detour if you are in the vicinity.
