Located on the Black Warrior River 13 miles south of Tuscaloosa, the park preserves 326 acres where, 800 years ago, Mississippian Indians constructed 28 massive flat-topped earthen pyramids, arranged carefully around a vast central plaza. The mounds served as elevated platforms for civic and ceremonial structures and the homes of nobles. Today, the panoramic landscape provides stunning views of these ancient monuments while the park's museum displays many of the beautiful treasures that have been unearthed at the site. A campground with modern amenities and a conference center available for private function rentals compliment this historically and culturally significant site. less
