I haven't been in 20 years but it was as cool and as mysterious as it was back then. Not much to see around but that there isn't much known about the origin which adds to the enjoyment of seeing this mound!!

This is a phenomenal effigy to view, considering how very old it is. It is on the National Registry of Historical Places, which means it should be handicapped accessible. However, one must climb three flights of steps to get to the top. There is a similar effigy about 20 miles due east on state Hwy. 16, entitled the Rock Hawk... More

This is a great place to view at least once. We have been several times and taken different friends to see it. No cost involved.

Attended a Conference in which my family accompanied me. The cottages were newly constructed with central A/C and WiFi. Each room had its awn bathroom. We had all the comforts of home. Did i mention the pool with water slide? i was impressed just a short drive from Atl will come again!

Had opportunity to visit this site a couple of times while attending a Full Gospel Businessman's Retreat near here. A historic site with lotsa rocks!

It's amazing to see this effigy that is over 2200 years old! The view from above is quite impressive.

I have visited the mound at Rock Eagle 4H Center many times. We took friends that have lived in Georgia many years but had never seen the mound this time. I always find the site worth visiting but wish there were an interactive guide available there at the site.

If you really have nothing to do in Eatonton and are looking for some quiet time I would recommend this. I came on a Thursday afternoon and did not see another person. My title says that it may be better for kids because the rocks look more like a fish than an eagle, and the tower used to see it... More

The Rock Eagle is situated on a campus belonging to the University of Georgia. It is easy to access this but as the campus has students you can't get into the main grounds. There is an exception on Sunday's when you get have lunch between 12:00 and 14:00 and see a bit more of the grounds.

After an unchallenging walk or an even easier drive, would you like to see an eagle roughly shaped in the form of rocks, from a tower that isn't quite high enough? I rest my case.
