  • I am Muscogee Creek born & raised here in Macon, Ga. It is great to know that the Ocmulgee National Monument preserves the history of my people The Creek Nation, Mvto! Which means Thank You in Creek language. I encourage everyone to come out and visit & learn; embrace the History of my people.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful and Interesting Place for my first time!! I really enjoyed my day here!!! Very quite and peaceful!!!
  • Cool place to come and walk around and learn about America's first settlers. Very interesting.
  • 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!
