This is neat to see if you are in the area. You walk up about 3 flights of stairs in order to view the rock formation. There is a sign that tells the history and once at top there is ample view.

I love visiting local attractions and Rock Eagle Mound did not let me down. Interesting archaeological site (Native American) but once you have seen t once there really is not much else to do. Choose your time of year carefully as a lot of school groups visit; can be very noisy.

This free site was made almost a millennium ago by the native Indians. It is gated to prevent tourist destruction, but you can get a perfect view from the tower. If you go on Sunday, there is a terrific luncheon buffet on the grounds

If you find yourself on 441 near Eatonton, GA, then Rock Eagle is definitely worth a visit. The entire site can be viewed in about 20 minutes. Measuring slightly larger than 120 feet tall, with a wingspan of 120 feet, this is a moderately impressive ancient site. Thought to be between 1,000 & 3,000 years old, it is evident early... More

You walk up a stone tower and the view is great you can really see the structure and how much work went into this years ago worth a stop

This us one of the best places to go in Eatonton. I grew up there and also was a 4H club member for years. The camp is awesome and the scenery is great. Good place for family and kids.

No fee and a nice history of the indians that inhabited this area of Georgia. The facility is getting a little run down but you can still walk to the top of the tower and view the Rock Eagle. Good informational signage is available at the start of the parking lot.

Outside of Eatonton, GA, are two ancient mounds worth visiting. They are both effigies of birds - Rock Eagle and Rock Hawk mounds. Rock Eagle is bigger and better preserved, but they are only 13 miles apart and both are worth seeing. Rock Eagle has a wing span of over 100 feet, made of white quartz rocks, and is well... More

Rock Eagle Mound is located inside Rock Eagle 4H Camp. There is a rock tower with stairs so you can climb high enough to view the Rock Eagle. The surrounding area that you walk through to get to the tower is pretty unlevel and would be challenging for some. Those same people might have difficulty climbing the stairs in the... More
