There is a must see museum in the visitors center. Stop here first to learn the history of this interesting place. There are some nice easy walking trails. See the Indian mounds. A very good place for birding as well. Go in the morning if it is a hot day. Good place to stretch your legs. They close at 5.

The highlight of this National Monument is the 1,000-year-old Earth Lodge. I loved that we were able to go inside (through a tiny tunnel) to see what it was like. The day outside was hot, but it was much cooler inside the mound. There are trails and a CCC-era visitor center, which housed a small museum with artifacts and a... More

Really well presented information in the visitor centre including a very good film that provides the context for the site over the millennia, also covers more recent history from civil war to major archeological investigations in 1930s.

Third year in a row visiting for the Indian Festival. Love the food, the atmosphere and so much to do for all ages. I have a family with a teenager and younger child and it is just as interesting and fun for all of us. We will continue to keep retuening, year after year. It is also great any other... More

I visited Ocmulgee NM as part of a summer trip across the Southeast US. It's very close to Macon, GA, and inexpensive motels were relatively easy to find. The monument focuses on two widely spaced eras: the period of use by native Indians, and the impact of the US Civil War and the spread of industry, especially railroads. The museum/visitor's...

Had a wonderful time, very educational learning about our nations history..Ocmulgee's visitor center includes an archaeology museum. It displays artifacts and interprets the successive cultures of the prehistoric Native Americans who inhabited this site, as well as the historic Muscogee and diverse peoples of the colonial era. The large park encompasses 702 acres (2.84 km2), with 5 1⁄2 miles (8.9... More

Interesting park. The park rangers were very nice and informative. The 17-minute film in the visitor center is worth watching. Nice scenery around the park. I enjoyed a few of the trails. They were pretty and well maintained. It was very hot the day I went so I was glad that I brought water along with me. The river trail... More
