We were on a quick weekend trip here and saw good things about this place. Unfortunately, we didn't get here until 4 and it closed at 5. We rushed to see as much as we could and can't wait to go back and spend several hours here. Highly recommend you take a visit here.

Such a great time walking around the monument and grounds! You can make it as long of a day as you want. Absolutely beautiful and very historic.

My wife and I go walking here occasionally and it is always beautiful! The museum is very interesting and they even have a gift shop. Be sure to bring your walking shoes if you want to visit the earth mounds.

I'm a Macon native and I still love this place. So do my dogs. It's perfect for a Sunday afternoon stroll and the weather is great right now for it!

Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Don't miss the presentation. It helps to set up the rest of the visit. Be warned. It can be very hot and humid. Some paths offer... More

This is an amazing historical site with artifacts going back to the Clovis period and right up to the Civil War. Mostly you will see mounds (from the outside) so to properly appreciate the site you need to visit the interpretive center first. There are also some nice hikes.

My daughter and I love it here. Whether we're going to enjoy the educational exhibits about the life of the Native Americans who once lived there, or to hike one of the many trails, we always have a great time, and pack a lunch to enjoy in the picnic area. Our favorite trail is about 5 miles round trip, and... More

These Indian mounds were created by the Mississipians. One can go in the ceremonial mound and climb up on the other mounds which look upon the Ocmulgee River. A museum exists to visit. A walking path runs all through the park so wear walking shoes. I felt a very spiritual, calming connection while visiting these mounds.

Well set-up site to educate oneself on the Native Mound Builder. Area of historic significance that has been well-preserved. Helpful staff that is willing to answers any questions about the area and site.
