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

Well worth the stairs. Really one of the most unusual sights I've seen here in Georgia. All of the ground around Rock Eagle Mound are beautiful for hiking, picnics, etc. On Sundays from 11AM to 1PM the main building they servce an old fashion Southern Lunch that's pretty much to die for, I believe the cost is under $15.00.

We traveled here to see some Native American history and were not disappointed. The backdrop of the CCC building was great.

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...
