  • The park has so much to do. The museum tells the story of the Ocmulgee Indians and how they lived. The ceremonial underground mound is amazing to see. It is so well preserved after a 1000 years. The I...  more »
  • Earthworks with a ceremonial lodge and a temple and a funeral earthwork. The walking can be a bit much. There is a boardwalk. And you can drive to the temple. The visitor center has a great exhibit on...  more »

  • Beautiful park that is well maintained. The staff is very proactive in removing invasive species, and it shows. It was really cool to see them replacing invasive privet with native river cane. The trail system is easy to hike, but has a lot of variation. One trail takes you to the top of the tallest mound, and another takes you on a boardwalk to the riverfront. Others meander through the park's woods. It's a wonderful place to wander through on a warm fall day.
  • Great place to visit. The Ranger was very friendly and informative. Learned a lot in the visitors building. The mounds were interesting and the hike through the woods was pleasant and relaxing. Lots of birds. Plenty of benches for quite moments with the birds and beauty of nature.
  • I'm not extinct! It's funny how your ancestors become a scientific study. Dig up your own grandparents. I know who I am and where I came from, but you don't! Study yourself and dig up your own cemetery.
  • Came back a week later. The man at the desk knows his business. And is more than happy to answer any questions and try to teach your kids what the school won't. 💗 We loved it and will be back.
  • Great place for an afternoon outing! Fun and informative visitors center, beautiful grounds and so much to learn about the Mississippian culture by actually seeing what they built! The Indian mounds are breathtaking with views over the forest and downtown Macon. See inside of one of the mounds as it was thousands of years ago. There are miles and miles of biking and walking trails through the wetlands. Lots of wildlife and flora to explore. Proud of Macon's rich native heritage preserved here at the Ocmulgee National Monument.
