    The site consists of a trail of mounds plus an interpretive center of the Hopewell culture, which is not a tribe, but rather a way of life we can identify through their artifacts. They constructed geo...  more »

    Green and rolling fields have an almost Stonehenge atmosphere when you learn the history. The Ranger tour is fascinating, but there's ample signage if you'd rather just walk the area. Hard to imagine ...  more »

    It was a nice area, interesting and quiet. I liked the museum too. It is nice that you can still visit historical areas for free.

    Excellent park that is associated with the National Park System. Best of all, this park is FREE. There are multiple locations with mounds to visit that have a great wealth of information to learn about the Hopewell Native Americans. The Visitor Center has a small but very informative museum with several artifacts. Definitely worth a visit.

    Beautiful park despite being surrounded by state prison facilities but once inside the short, wooded drive to the parking area all things modern and ugly are forgotten. A very peaceful park with a near immediate calming effect. Get off that awful paved Yoctangee flood wall path and experience the real beauty of Ross County. "Serenity Now!"
