  • This park is definitely something to see. The mounds here are very fascinating and there are quite a few of them. There's at least two nice trails that I saw. Also check out the gift shop/museum.
  • Such a beautiful spot in Chillicothe! Always great to learn the history of our area!
  • Love the peaceful view of the sunrise. Witness God's magnificence.
  • This is a cite rich with history that's easy to overlook. My wife and I started with the visitor's center where we met with a U.S. National Park Ranger who gave us a wonderful and enthusiastic overview. We also watched the 18 minute video. Then after an enjoyable walk around the area, we returned to the visitor's center and chatted with a newly assigned Ranger. He gave us an additional perspective of the area, including information about an active dig where we could observe archaeologists in action. How much you enjoy your visit here will greatly depend on your effort to uncover the history.
  • Definitely recommend a visit. The artifacts and the video were fascinating.
