Welcome to Ocmulgee National Monument this park is a memorial to the relationship of people and natural resources.

The Mississippian culture arrived here around 900 constructing mounds for their elite. Today the mounds still remain for all to see.

  • We ended up in Macon GA due to hurricane Matthew evacuation of SC. This is a wonderful informational park We followed the informational trails and the wooded walking trails. 
  • Finally saw an inside of a Indian mound. The museum was very worthwhile. All was free. Highly recommend. 
  • Awesome place. A must to visit. I take everyone I can visiting to this spot. Many cool trails and sites to see. Museum is even pretty sweet. Great history to learn about. I'm proud of the Monuments and am glad its keeping preserved! Visit here frequently for nice weather day trips.
  • Put on your hiking boots, and check out this awesome local history attraction. The rangers are friendly, and the preservation and interpretation are top notch. Don't be afraid to explore the trails away from the main mounds! Be sure to visit during the heritage festival and cherry blossom festival for special events!
  • Cool place to come and walk around and learn about America's first settlers. Very interesting.
