If you're looking for a theme park, or to be entertained, then you should skip this location. This is an opportunity to stand on a historically and 'spiritually' important spot. It isn't here to give you an adrenaline pump, or make you laugh, or give you a breathtaking vista. If you're interested in archaeology and/or studying native cultures, this should... More

Nothing too interesting but it is what they say. Could get some pretty pictures if you want. Beware of bugs. Might have been a little nicer if it was cool. Will I be back no.

The mounds is nice to stop and view, stretch your legs and enjoy nature. But dont drive out of way just to see. We spent about 15 minutes on way to beach area

Nice place for bird watchers, if you aren't one just a good place to collect mosquito bites, although if you're lucky you can catch a glimpse of lizards scurrying about.

We were staying at Daulphin Island for a Spring Break beach vacation and stopped by the Indian Shell Mound after reading about it on the web. This place is filled with VERY serious bird watchers. Which is fine. I just didn't catch that part when doing my research of places to go while we were on the island. From the... More

We had heard that this was the place to see a lot of birds. We went at dusk, and followed some of the paths, but did not have any luck finding too many birds. Some of the paths were not passable, due to mud and water. Not a lot of markers to indicate the shell mounds, or anything about the... More

You pull up to it thinking you'll find shells.....and you don't. It's pretty much just a place to nature walk and bird watch.

Great place to walk and take pics. Interesting background to read about the history. Beautiful different trees and amazing low branches and great tropical plants.

We stopped by the shell mounds on our way off the island from the ferry. The mounds are the shell remains of centuries of Indian habitation and have grown quite large in size. If you didn't know it you would think they are just hills. The park is a stop on the Coastal birding trail and is a favorite stopping... More
