Middle Georgia has a lot to see if you take the time to look! This is a site well worth visiting. A great place for a picnic, stroll and gain insight on the land and its people.

We stopped in Macon on our road trip, to break up the trip. We enjoyed the mounds and teaching the kids about Native American life at the museum, could have spent more time there if it wasn't so hot

This place is great to come to. A good walk and exercise. There is a sidewalk taking you to the different mounds, or there are different natural trails to walk on. You can go inside one of the Indian mounds which is very cool! There is another that has a lot of steps, but when you reach the top you... More

I grew up going to the Indian Mounds but as an adult there are things I wished someone would have pointed. I have taken my daughter and tried to do that. Well worth the visit be prepared to do some walking! Better to do in the cooler months!

It was extremely hot and humid when we visited. There's a well-maintained walking trail to the top of the monumental hills which provide a nice view over the swamps and the Atlanta skyline in the distance.

A great place! I could easily spend a day here, and really learn what life was like in Macon BEFORE the Europeans arrived. I'll be back here again when I visit this area. P.S. Kids will love this!

Close to the freeways so an easy stop for travelers. Nice museum that explains the mounds and area history. Short video is a good intro. Easy walks on paved or unpaved trails. Grass covered mounds are not the most scenic but very historic. Stand on top of the Great Temple Mound and soak up the sun.

I'd previously visited the Etowah Mounds and several others, so we carved a few hours out of our trip from North Georgia to St. Pete, FL, to visit the Ocmulgee Mounds outside Macon, GA. I was blown away! Continuously inhabited for over 17,000 years. Yes. 17, 000. Used by 4 cultures, this is now a 1000 acre park, run by... More
