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.

This is neat to see if you are in the area. You walk up about 3 flights of stairs in order to view the rock formation. There is a sign that tells the history and once at top there is ample view.

I love visiting local attractions and Rock Eagle Mound did not let me down. Interesting archaeological site (Native American) but once you have seen t once there really is not much else to do. Choose your time of year carefully as a lot of school groups visit; can be very noisy.

This free site was made almost a millennium ago by the native Indians. It is gated to prevent tourist destruction, but you can get a perfect view from the tower. If you go on Sunday, there is a terrific luncheon buffet on the grounds

If you find yourself on 441 near Eatonton, GA, then Rock Eagle is definitely worth a visit. The entire site can be viewed in about 20 minutes. Measuring slightly larger than 120 feet tall, with a wingspan of 120 feet, this is a moderately impressive ancient site. Thought to be between 1,000 & 3,000 years old, it is evident early... More
