We went to the Rock Eagle 4-H center for a 4-H program. While there we stopped at the Rock Eagle Mound. The kids enjoyed seeing it, and getting to the top of the tower.

The drive into the area where Rock Eagle is found is very scenic - especially early on a Saturday morning when no one else is around. There is a rock walkway leading to the massive rock tower, From the tower you can look down and see the Rock Eagle Mound. However, the rock walkway is not "walker-friendly" for anyone unsteady...

This is a great place to visit for free. It's very interesting and pretty amazing. Can't appreciate it without climbing the tower, so not for the elderly or disabled. The effigy is located inside the 4-H park/camp. This is a beautiful park with a private lake and trails, a museum, Sunday buffet, picnic areas/pavilion etc. Located in Eatonton on Hwy... More

This is a fun, quick visit for anyone interested in history or ancient cultures; while the site itself is well laid-out, has good parking, and is easy to get to, there's not much in the way of explanatory information or background. There's a large informational sign at the parking lot entrance to the site, but aside from that, there's not... More

First of all there is no charge to stop by and see the effigy. There are signs to explain why the mound is there and how it was built and what they have found in it. It is a great piece of native american history, it's easy to get to, not much walking, not handicapped accessible and when you climb... More

This is a quick jaunt off I-20 and a nice add-on to a trip to Madison. It's a great WPA site that provided work for the unemployed during the Great Depression, and still provides a free and interesting staycation venue for those short of cash from the Great Recession. There are picnic tables and hiking trails once you've gazed long... More

I've been intrigued by this since I was young so we took the kiddos to visit. Parking is nearby and so are picnic tables. The girls wandered around and enjoyed the beautiful day and park. It is a quick stop so don't plan to spend all day - the surrounding 4H park is gorgeous. You must be able to climb... More

This is an interesting archeological feature easily accessible from US 441/US 129 near Eatonton. You may want to research online before visiting as little information is available at the site. There is the mound, an observation tower, parking lot, and a nearby picnic area and that is about all. It is part of the large Rock Eagle 4H Center.

This site is really well laid out and easy to find. It is self-directed with markers and a tower so you can see it from above. It is amazing that something so old is so well preserved.
