This place should be better maintained. Spiro is one of the great archeological sites in North America. Oklahoma, please take better care of your treasures!

Beautiful archelogical area where the Indians camped on their journeys by the Arkansas River. They have discovered lots of dishes and tools where they stayed. Mounds where they camped.

You pay $9 to walk an open field. All the signs need updated as you can no longer read what you're looking at. They do offer you a book to drag with you the two miles to read what the signs used to say before...More
