I had read about Indian mounds but never had the opportunity to visit one. I was surprised to learn about the Ocmulgee National Monument and it's location in Macon. My visit was extremely informative and thoroughly enjoyable. I felt peaceful as I walked the site and entered the mound. I urge everyone interested in history to visit this site. I... More

This is a fascinating NPS site that explores some of the history of the Mississippian culture that built a city on this site. There are a series of mounds and a few foundations around the park that are connected by some gentle nature trails over the fields and through a wooded area. There is also a great Streamline Moderne style... More

Amazing park with very cool indian mounds. I didn't know anything about the place before we visited, but the informative museum and movie really teaches you a lot. After you visit the art deco visitor center make sure to drive and see the mounds themselves. Amazing they are so old!

We've been here several times for either organized events such as 5K runs, as well as just to spend some time walking the trails and enjoying the scenery. It's very peaceful here, especially if pick the time of day when it's comfortable. (Meaning early morning in the summer or afternoon during the winter.) Parking is easy and you almost have... More

We were visiting Macon and looking for things to do on New Year's Eve day. Some things were closed, and it was a beautiful, clear, crisp day making this a perfect place to visit. The park ranger greeted us upon entering the museum or the indoor part of the national park. He was extremely knowledgeable and welcoming and told us... More

This is a wonderful outdoor place to visit. So much history and beautiful views. The park is free unless you come here for a special event. Wish I had more time to spend here.

I had no idea what I would find here before I came. Nice trails, Civil War history, Indian burial mounds, and even got some photos of 2 deer that I spooked which had been hiding under a foot bridge. What fun!

I grew up in Macon and frequented "Indian Mounds" as we call it many times. I now live out of town but every time I come home, I make it a point to take my kids and walk. It's the perfect place to reconnect to nature. They have walking trails and the history lesson is awesome.

Learned about Mississippian Indian and got a chance to look at some great views. Be sure to bring comfortable shoes because it can be lot of hiking and there are elevation changes.
