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.

Step back in time by seeing the Eagle Mound! Beautiful surroundings! A good place for youth activities at the 4 h conference Center.

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

This was on my route thru GA so I had to stop. It is would be difficult for people who have a hard time walking to maneuver the walkway and the steps to see this. No strollers or walkers here. And one must go up to the top of the tower to see anything resembling an eagle. Worth a stop.

It was fun to look at the Rock Eagle Mound and to climb the tower to get a bird's eye view (ha! pun intended). But it was a brief 10 minute stop. A great way to break up a long drive.

If you are travelling near Eatonton, Georgia, (including Macon, which isn't that far away from Eatonton) make certain to go see this interesting site. The eagle, made up of smokey quartz by ancient peoples unknown, is protected by a high fence. To see it properly, one must climb to the top of the wooden tower at one end of the... More
