I decided to stop by on my way home to stretch my legs and to learn more about the mounds. It was a cool little stop. It was raining the day I stopped so I did a quick driveby and took a few pictures of the mounds. I did go into to little museum which was very informative about the... More

The museum is very interesting and offers insight into the lives of the native inhabitants at the time of the construction of the mounds, a short video is also available. It is peaceful walking along the trails and exploring the park and mounds - the large temple mound is very impressive and dwarfs the temple mound at the Kolomoki Mounds... More

While on a road trip from Georgia to Florida and back again, me and my wife decided to see Ocmulgee National Monument. I had visited before (although it had been years and years ago), but this was my wife's first visit. First, let me point out that when you are following directions to get to this National Monument it may... More

We were in Macon for the State Tech Fair and had some time after lunch, so we decided to take a walk around Ocmulgee. It ended up being a great idea and all I can say is I'm hoping we can go back. All we had was about 1 1/2 hours or so and it was clearly not enough. We... More

We had been in the car for about 2 hours and we were looking for somewhere to stop and stretch. Found this amazing piece of history on line. A little out of way and at times you think you are going the wrong way but worth the visit. It always amazes me to see the ingenuity and skills that our... More

This park is free, cleaned, great visitor center and an incredible travel to past. You discovered our native Indians lived there. Interesting paths to trail.

For those of us who have visited mound sites like Effigy Mounds in eastern Iowa, this offered quite an addition to our knowledge. The museum features many very attractively made displays and the staff, like everywhere I've visited in our national parks or monuments, is extremely helpful. The grounds offer further experiences especially entering the large ceremonial mound several hundred... More
