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.

Great place to stretch your legs out of a long car ride! Easily located off Hwy 441 with good signage.

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...

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
