I stopped here while on a road trip. I didn't have my RV with me, but the campground looks nice, with hookups and lots of shade. All the sites are grass, no pavement or gravel. Pam's diner just down the road seems nice. This place has a bunch of mounds you can walk by or drive by. There are a... More

Native America is brought to life through artifacts, Indian mounds, trails and huts. The yearly October Native Festival is wonderful

Barely a dozen miles off of Interstate 59/20 south of Tuscaloosa, this park offers peaceful observation with a number of large placards to reveal the history that has been discovered here. The modest admission price for this archeological park is well worth the sights and the stories you will find from natives past. There is a slow-speed paved road with... More

I loved this place! I had been so excited to go to visit and it didn't disappoint. If you like walking and history you will enjoy going to Moundville. It is a 300 acre park. My husband and I was here for two hours and forty minutes. So depending how long you want to zip through, because you can drive... More

Located just outside Tuscaloosa this is definitely a treasure. A short film provides the history of Moundville which includes the mysterious disappearance of Native Americans in the mid 1500's. Archeologists and historians have pulled together the story of people based on artifacts that have been discovered onsite. Less than ten percent of the grounds have been excavated. The grounds are...

My father is from Moundville, and I grew up going to this park, which locals just call "The Mounds." Recently. I returned to the Mounds for the first time in years. I was very impressed with the renovations/upgrades at the museum, including an observation deck atop one of the Mounds. Loved seeing the pottery and stoneware artifacts on display. It... More

As locals we have been visiting Moundville Archaeological Park since we were kids. It's a great place to appreciate the past and all that the Native Americans endured. All of their mounds are beautiful, and you should check our their museum during business hours as well! The land sits right up to The Black Warrior River. It sparkles in the... More

We passed thru here on our road trip. It was $8 adult & $6 child/student. You pay in the 1st building you come to upon entering the park. You can then drive around the mounds. There are only 2 that you can climb up & they have stairs. I recommend tennis shoes as you do walk through grass to get... More

This site is impressive and next to Cahokia, outside of St. Louis, perhaps the largest in size or height and preservation. The 300+ acres and circular road take you around the grounds after you pay $8 admission and are able to set your eyes on the grounds, museum and chieftains mound. The Chieftain's mound was closed when i visited as... More
