We really loved this short hike around the grounds. They had recently had a windstorm, so there were some trees down, but it made for a more exciting experience! I loved the museum, and going into the "mounds" . The staff was incredible , Highly recommend!

It was a nice afternoon visit. Everything was pretty accessible. We enjoyed walking from site to site but you can drive between many of the sites. It was a very good afternoon.

The park rangers are so kind and informative! I loved going here. They span the whole human history of the area. The museum is wonderful, there is a mound you can go in and see the reconstruction of what they think it looked like (based on evidence). You can also walk on top of a few of the mounds which...

Wasn't sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised by this small national monument. Always interested in learning more about our native culture. Beautiful, peaceful, setting. Next time we will pack a picnic lunch!

The information centre is excellent and the rangers are very helpful. It was really interesting to walk the extensive sit,e once the tribal base of native . Americans. The effect of a rampant railroad company driving through it is clear to this day. Well done to the authorities for securing, excavating and showcasing it.
