The mounds was a wonderful place to visit. The road is closed right now so everyone walks out to the mounds. If you aren't up for a half mile walk and have an hour to spend then it might not be the best place to visit until the get the park road back open. Walking up on the biggest mound... More

This was completely amazing. It is reminscent of Stonehenge. I grew up in an area rich with native american culture and heritage, but never have I seen such a village and mounds as this. It was completely fascinating. Loved it. If you love history, and nature, being outside, you will love this place. The ranger was so friendly and willing... More

Road was closed for paving so the only way to see anything was on foot. Usually not a big deal but we were not prepared. Flip flops aren't good hiking shoes and there are a lot of stairs, very narrow walkways and hills. Strollers or wheel chairs wouldn't be able to go very far. The view however, once you get... More

Not good. Place run-down. Nothing to see. Mounds. That is all. Andersonville far more interesting. I was shocked by its ineffable dullness. Awfully boring.

We are passport stamp collectors, and we were looking for a day trip and ended up here. This site is incredible, with a wealth of history about the area that anyone can appreciate.

The museum gives a nice overview of the history & is good to visit first. Kids enjoy going into the mound. Great place to walk around if you are in the area.

The beautiful museum offers a 15-20 mins film which gave a great over view about the history of the Mississippians Indians and the "Mounds". Makes the hike around the park more meaningful. The trails are nicely marked and varied. You may take your dog on leash here but they ask that you not climb the mounds with them out of... More

We had seen this on Tripadvisor and thought it would be interesting. Got there, parked, and went in the Visitor Center. The Park Ranger that greeted us and another person showed us exhibits and gave us a 15 minute presentation on the history of the area. We looked around the visitor center some and then asked for suggestions on where... More

Fun historic museum. Has a huge mound where you can climb up to the top and has a great view of the country.

This is a trip for any history buff. The mounds are beautiful and well maintained. I went with my children and grandmother and we had a blast learning new things.
