17,000 Years of Continuous Human Habitation! Welcome to Ocmulgee National Monument. This park is a memorial to the relationship between people and natural resources. Native Americans first came here during the Paleo-Indian period to hunt Ice Age...more

My spouse and I did the S,C.A.R.E. (Sudden Cardiac Arrest Research and Education) 5K on 20 October 2018. It's always a pleasure to go to the Ocmulgee Mounds-well maintained, living history. Great Park rangers-will answer any question you have. Wonderful place to visit and experience...More

I have visited the Ocumolgee national monument many times and have enjoyed it every single time. There are trails for exploring, interactive exhibitions (walk inside of the mound), a museum with friendly staff, and a picnic area. Everywhere you go you are surrounded by a...More
My family and I went back-and-forth on if we wanted to stop here on our way to Atlanta, and I am so happy we did! The trees were changing colors, leaves were falling, air was crisp, and history was interesting. I wasn’t really sure if...More

A nice way to learn that the Native Americans inhabited this land for a long, long time before the Europeans came! If you desire a walk in the nature just few minutes from the city center, Ocmulgee is a place to go. The trails are...More

Previous responses are all valid points. Mounds themselves might be a challenge with a wheelchair but doable. The excavated floor mound with viewing Windows probably not an option as entry is low and narrow. The Visitor Center is excellent and very accessible. Combining that with some parts of the outdoor sections that are easier could be an excellent visit for a wheelchair bound person
