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.

I was intrigued by my reading of this site and decided to stop for a brief visit while in the area recently. I talked for a while with a really friendly and knowledgeable ranger before heading out to her recommendations for the must see sites on a short stay. I thoroughly enjoyed my stop and will make it a point... More

Stopped in Macon for the night and wanted a place to walk our dog. What a treat! Yes, there are great walking paths but the historical treasure we found was amazing. Learned so much about the Native American tribes that lived in the area, their culture, and life style. The ability to walk into one of the mounds was very... More

A great National Monument to see. Very professional film and museums inside. Great to see the mounds and tour the park by foot also.

Well restored mound site of the Mississippian culture, later known as the Creeks in this part of Georgia. There were several mounds and a very nice visitor center with artifacts on display and an informative film. Barcodes at site placards give self-guided narration. Very helpful.

Nice easy trails for hiking. The lake is great for bird watching also. The museum is small but nice and has a hidden theater area for relaxing in a/c after hikes and watching films on the area history. There is a picnic area at museum for groups or families to use. They also host events throughout the year that are... More

We had a good hike. Most of it is unshaded but it's fun with sunshine or light drizzles. I recommend going up to the tallest mound. Macon city view is great from there.

We attended an Indian festival here with out young sons and had a blast! there were exhibits and shows, museum, film, and more. We've also attended field trips with Kindergarten groups that seemed to really enjoy it as well. Not as much fun as the festival, but still plenty to learn from. Hiking the burial grounds and reading along the... More
